Diane’s Story

Diane’s Story

Diane and her husband Paul have been attending Edgewood since 2007. She is the co-chair of the Racial Justice Task Force, participates in a Circles of Faith small group (pictured here volunteering together), and sings each week in the choir.


First and foremost Edgewood is solidly a UCC church. It was important to me to be part of a denomination that has a strong history of social justice. The music program is also important to me, so Edgewood was a good fit. Folks at Edgewood put their faith into action in a big way!


The folks at Edgewood are being faithful disciples in doing the work that God calls us to do. It feels empowering to be a part of this community. I feel empowered to “keep on keeping on,” but I also love that Edgewood folks don’t make me feel guilty for what I am not doing! The lay leadership is incredibly strong – intelligent people doing lots of great work and I am fully welcomed “ no matter where I am on life’s journey.”
