Countryside Community Church is affiliated with the United Church of Christ. We were established in 1949 as part of the Congregational Church, one of the oldest denominations in America, which still remains strong in the New England states. In 1957, our branch of the Congregational Church joined with the Reformed Church in the United States, independent congregations of the Christian Connection, and the Evangelical Synod of North America to form what is now commonly known as the United Church of Christ, or the UCC.
The UCC is distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church, but we have no superior body that tells congregations what they can or cannot do. Local congregations are free to accept or reject initiatives from the wider church, but we are responsible to listen and consider. The big decisions for our local church are made by our congregation in meetings that everyone is encouraged to attend. Countryside is part of The Nebraska Conference of the United Church of Christ and appreciates the covenantal connection of that relationship.
