who we are
what we do
Our worship is both traditional and contemporary. We are rooted in the traditions of our faith but seek fresh and creative expressions for today.
First Congregational has a rich legacy of mission work. We respond to God’s call to know and love our brothers and sisters in our community and around the world.
Every group at First Congregational is different and unique. Some share a meal or study a book, but the main goal is to share a life together, serve and draw closer through care, connection, and events.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are individuals with hopes, dreams, questions, and fears. We are stressed-out parents trying to lead lives that express our values. We are children needing positive connections to form our life’s foundation. We are friends holding steady through each other’s peaks and valleys. We are a community of imperfect people following the teachings of Christ.
We are called to act as Global Citizens, aware of the ways we are connected to all of God’s Creation. We intentionally seek to nurture the light of God within and share it in a complex world that needs healing. We believe God’s love is inclusive and unconditional.
We believe in Christ and Christ’s work of redemption and reconciliation in every generation.This is why we are committed to listening for God’s “still speaking” voice for our lives and in the world today. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We believe in extravagant welcome and our communion table is open to all who seek to know God’s grace and Christ’s presence. We advocate justice for all including the environment and believe the church’s mission changes lives.
