Welcome!

Welcome to the First Congregational United Church of Christ website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ.  We are a congregation with over 500 people who come together from all walks of life and seek to serve our Lord and Master.  We hope that, when you visit our church, you will sense the presence of God and that  you will see the love of Christ in those who have gathered for worship.

First Congregational United Church of Christ, founded in 1839, is an "open and welcoming church," which means that membership is open to every person who accepts the cost and joy of discipleship in the church of Jesus Christ.  Anyone who walks through the doors is welcomed with open arms and is invited into full participation in the active life of the congregation.

YOUTH MISSION TRIP  

The youth of the church, along with four chaperones, departed for the long-awaited mission trip to Lexington, South Carolina, on August 1 and reurned late on August 8.It has been 10 months since the initial planning for the mission trip began in October 2014.   

Youth MissionTripThe mission trip participants would like to thank everybody who either donated or participated in the fundraisers throughout the spring. We had a tremendous turnout of about 100 people for the pancake breakfast between services. The youth also had a busy weekend during the “rent-a-youth” fundraiser cleaning yards, raking leaves, preparing gardens, removing trees and stumps, cleaning houses, and visiting people of the church. A special thank you goes to the church and other committees allocating funds for the trip to be completed. Thank you very much!
