Rev. LInda Noonan and Rev. Kipp Gilmore-Clough
At Chestnut Hill United Church we are a diverse group of people. Our ages range from the very small to the wise elders, and the largest age groups in the church are 5-14 and 35-50 years old. Our skin colors stretch the gamut, and we represent a number of cultures and abilities. We are an Open and Affirming and Reconciling Congregation, and welcome people of all sexual orientations, genders, races, and beliefs. We are an Antiracist Congregation which strives to identify, seek out and address racism in all forms. Although we are self-consciously Christian, we also have a number of associate members who are Muslim, Jewish, Pagan or Shinto. We celebrate being Christian, while not claiming that Christianity is either the only or the best way. We take the Bible seriously, but not literally. We are a United Church - a congregation affiliated with both the United Methodist and the United Church of Christ denominations.
