Circular Congregational Church, Charleston

4.7
Circular is a place, a church, and people committed to living and worshiping with joy, simplicity, and caring. We care for the hidden wholeness in each other; we care for justice and kindness in our society; we care about thinking with open minds and devoted hearts; and we care about saving the beauty and integrity of the environment for future generations. Because we care deeply about these things, we practice what we preach in our personal lives as well as in our church’s programs. Being an Open and Affirming Church, we welcome people of different sexual orientations, socio-economic status, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and we value the differences among us as signs of the Creator’s amazing polyphony.

Our faith is rooted in Jesus Christ, whom we endeavor to follow in the radical way of progressive Christianity. That is, we believe the Bible is truthful but not literal, that God is a living Presence but not a dominating white man in the sky, that Jesus is a person of the Spirit and of saving wisdom but not a sacrifice to an offended God. We commit ourselves to equal and utmost respect of persons, joyful worship, theological discipline and discovery, social justice and dignity, and collegial leadership.

And we invite you to join us in this exciting spiritual pathway!

  • So very appreciate that this church allows you to walk through the cemetery and pick up the elements of history. The grave yard is well slept and even though time has done what time does there is plenty of tombstones that are in great condition. Did not get to visit inside the church but the exterior was beautiful and the architecture inspiring.
  • Attended a service while visiting from out of town. The love in that space was palpable, and you can tell they mean it when they say "everyone welcome". What a beautiful experience to come together with people from all walks of life and worship. The message was warm, applicable, and inclusive; encouraging us to improve our own walk with God. The music was fantastic as well. No matter who you are or what you believe, you will have a peaceful, encouraging, and enjoyable hour. Highly recommend visiting!
