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. 


In-person church worship is on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and combines with
our online Zoom worship service.    

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

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

Masks are required inside the church.
