In this challenging time, it’s good to know that there’s a community like First Congregational United Church of Christ. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Our physical sanctuary remains closed for the time being, but there are still great options for joining us on Sunday morning! All services are at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. Videos and podcasts remain available afterwards.

Who We Are

We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ.

The United Church of Christ is a church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. We were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.

As an Open and Affirming congregation, we strive to welcome and celebrate all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, faith, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, age, or ability.

We believe in a God that is still speaking, a God that is all-loving and inclusive.  We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul. We are a church where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary, and where together, we grow a just and peaceful world.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here!
