About Us

Rev. Dr. Katherine Brearley, was our Pastor for the last nine years and retired on May 24, 2020. We have appointed a Search Committee and we are in the process of building our Local Church Profile. We plan to hire an Interim Pastor to start as soon as possible. Currently we are operating with Rev. Lynn Shoemaker as a supply pastor. Laurie Heagy is our current Church Board President. You can contact her at laurie@longswampucc.org

We exist to teach, share and act on Jesus' teachings. 

We strive to help, love and welcome all kinds of people.

We welcome everyone - no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey.
