Since 1858, New England Congregational Church has served the Aurora community as a “caring church for thinking people.” We welcome folks to bring their unique identities, experiences, knowledge, questions, and passions with them when we gather for worship, learning, fellowship, and service.
We are an inclusive church, open and affirming. You are welcome here regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, mental or physical ability, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, family/marital status, or political perspective.
We believe the characteristics which make us different actually make us fuller, richer, more beautiful expressions of the faith we profess!
- We honor individuals’ experiences of the Holy and celebrate the wonders of the world around us.
- We are committed to understanding and living out the work and teachings of Jesus.
- We take scripture seriously but not always literally.
- We believe that our church is called to play a vital role in the thriving of our community.
