Moving To Orlando!

I'm moving to Orlando and a week and ready to church hunt! i'm hoping to find a church that at least SORT OF agrees with the 8 points or has a statement of faith that will be a bit similar. Any suggestions? I'm hoping to avoid having to settle for a congretation that is dogmatic and closeminded.

Pershing Ave. Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The pastor is Rev. Lindy Wood, a classmate of mine from Divinity School and a generally progressive person. Don't know about the church as a whole but its fairly progressive - at least the pastor is. Tell her I recommended her church. - Brent

First Congregational Church of Winter Park is a UCC church. Read their 'Top 10 Reasons for becoming UCC' on the home page of their website http://www.fccwp.org. Based on that, it seems like a very progressive church.

 

Orlando University Congregational UCC seems to have a very diverse congregation. It is a small church which has been there for a long time but has remained small.

 

Hope Unites is a MCC/UCC church downtown that says it is a progressive church on its website http://www.hopeunites.org.

 

Joy MCC is an inclusive church (shouldn't all churches be?) that is open to all, http://www.joymcc.com

 

Someone suggested Methodist churches, but I do know that most of the Methodist churches are not very progressive. At least the ones here in Florida. Seems like most of them would fit into the conservative, evangelical camp.

 

If you do check out these churches, please do post your thoughts on them. It would be very beneficial and enlightening for other progressive Christians seeking a home church in the Orlando area.

 

Good luck!!
