From its inception in October 1955, Rincon Congregational Church was envisioned as a place to offer a progressive approach to religion and spirituality.
We worship, grow and celebrate together. Our history demonstrates our love of art and music, our compassion for each other and the members of the wider community, our desire to fight for social justice and our willingness to support each other on our spiritual journeys.
A brief review of some of our milestones:
One of the unique features of our sanctuary are our stained class windows.
The artist and designer, Mary Meyers used the themes of Joy, Hope and Renewal, Love and Peace for her work. She describes her work: “Joy is characterized by the choice of strong bright colors –red, blue, and green, and by the use of free and flowing lines. Hope and Renewal are characterized by the water forms – the ‘bubbles’ and the ‘waves’ in the panes designs. Water is the element which is ‘Mother to us all, it implies birth, and the Rebirth of Faith; it means cleansing, baptism, and the molding and changing powers of the waves on the shore. Love is represented by the clear, continuous, but sinuous flowing line that threads all the window panels and the sections of the skylight together. Peace is represented by the blue ‘ladder’ or step forms in the design representing the human climb toward peace, both inner and worldly.”
We agree with Mary, "It is love that binds us all together in worship and in life."
