First Congregational is part of the United Church of Christ, a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the United States, the United Church of Christ serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. The United Church of Christ is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where “…they may all be one” (John 17:21).
First Congregational is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. We declare ourselves to be an inclusive and nurturing community of faith. With God’s grace, we seek to be a congregation that embraces differences of race, ethnicity, culture, faith, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital and family status, age, and ability. We celebrate and welcome all to share equally in the life of our church family.
