We invite you to be a part of our community of faith, to be blessed by God’s grace in our midst. We invite you to Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ (a.k.a. Gables UCC) to grow spiritually, and to find welcome at God’s table. Our vision is to be an inclusive, vibrant, alive, witnessing community of faith.
We are the people of South Florida, a diverse, culturally rich, and intriguing community. We are young and old, economically fortunate and economically struggling, Hispanic and African-American, gay and straight, native Miamians and transplants from around the globe. A common misconception is that churchgoers are stuffy, standoffish, and don’t like newcomers. Nothing is farther from the truth here. We want you to experience our friendship and closeness firsthand. We want you to feel comfortable and to enjoy worship with us.
Visiting a church for the first time can be a frightening experience. We know it can be scary walking through those big wooden doors. We assure you, though, that the hard part is making up your mind to visit. Once you are here you will find a haven of hospitality, beauty, and inspiring worship.
Please join us. We are expecting you!
Meet Our Pastors
I was raised in a family of Protestant Churchgoers, however as time went on the Church and Its teachings seemed to bear little relevance to the real world. This resulted in my not attending church for several years. I am so very grateful to have reconnected with a spiritual home at Gables UCC which has taught me that my Christian faith is still highly relevant to the world I live in.
