Our Ministries

First Congregational United Church of Christ is a church that serves our community. Our ministries are constantly evolving and changing as the needs of our congregation and community change.

Book Club

Our book club focuses on novels and memoirs that spark conversation around important social issues. It meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 6pm.

Our book for December 2022 is Small Gods by Terry Pratchett.

Our book for January is Heartland by Sarah Smarsh.

Sunday School

Sunday School for youth four years old through second grade meets in six-week blocks, one block during the fall and the other during the spring, during worship. We use curricula from Illustrated Ministry, which creates thoughtful and easy-to-use materials designed to foster authentic faith engagement with refreshing designs and creative activities.

Sunday School usually meets in two or three six-week blocks during the year.

Our next Sunday School session will meet in the spring. We'll be using An Illustrated Earth: Celebrating God's Creation.

Crafty Stitchers

The Crafty Stitchers are a group of people who make quilts, lap robes, and other items for our community.

Confirmation

Confirmation is the rite where young people affirm their baptisms and join our congregation as members. It is also a process that our eighth graders go through to prepare for that rite.

During the year, confirmands take a class, participate in church life, explore their faith with their families, and more.

Bible Study

Our Bible study meets on Thursday mornings at 7am. We start with a simple breakfast, study scripture from 7:15 to 7:45, and then wrap up so that people can go where they need to go by 8am!
