First Congregational United Church Of Christ

You  Are Welcome Here!

We believe that we are all made in the image of God and that we are called to celebrate our God-given identities regardless of age, class, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, marital status, race, ethnicity, or mental ability.  As Jesus calls us to love each other as we are loved by God, we welcome, affirm, and support all people into our full life and ministry. 


(Sunday 10am)

We have begun in-person church worship.  Church seating is currently limited to 20 people, so reservations are necessary.  Please contact the church office
to reserve a seat for Sunday morning worship.  

We will continue our online Zoom worship service

at 10 am each Sunday, with a "Fellowship Time" afterward

Please email the church office for the link each week by Friday.

A recording of the service will be on Facebook as well.

Much of our life together is "on pause," but we are leaving much of our website as is in the hope you will find it a useful reflection of our congregation.

  • Children's Worship

    Children begin the service in the sanctuary with their family or friends. They are dismissed for Sunday School after Kinder Tinder (our children's message). Sunday School is offered for children Pre K though 6th grade during worship on Sunday mornings. This fall we will be introducing the new Shine curriculum for our Sunday School classes. 

    During the summer months of June, July, and August we offer an activity period for the children after Kinder Tinder.
