Welcome to Mountain Rise
United Church of Christ
We are a vibrant, progressive, faith based, justice seeking, service minded community.
Mountain Rise welcomes you to a different kind of church, where…
God’s love embraces all persons equally, no matter their
gender, race, or sexual identity;
Faith is a matter of mind as well as heart;
Diversity, acceptance, and inclusivity are strengths to be taught;
Justice is the social expression of God’s love;
The Bible is taken seriously, so it cannot always be taken literally;
Spiritual life can heal the soul, equipping us to
heal our community and the Earth.
Worship with us:
Sundays at 10:00am
Due to current low level of infections in the Finger Lakes,
Council has decided to change our Mountain Rise COVID policy.
For the time being, masks will be optional in the church building for both small groups and worship. We continue to encourage individuals to take their own risks into consideration when unmasking.
In the future, if the COVID infection level goes back up, Council will reassess and may return to a mask-wearing policy in order to keep everyone safe when we gather together.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Mountain Rise UCC Council
