To Grow.

As Disciples of Christ, we hold that Christians are free to follow their consciences, guided by Bible study, the Holy Spirit, reason, and prayer.

Come Join Us in Worship

10:50 am Sundays. 2007 University Ave. 78705

UCC has provided me a spiritual home and a loving church family since 2000 when my husband Tim joined the church. The congregation celebrated our family milestones, supported us in our challenges, and offered us the opportunity and the room to grow spiritually in our own way. I had room to come from my non-Christian background and still engage as part of this church family. When I got baptized and became an official member of UCC, the congregation shared its joy with me, but that joy was really an extension of the love and support my church family had been giving me all along.
