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.

Our church's 175th Anniversary Committee has selected Rooted in Faith - Serving in Love as the theme of our year-long observation leading to the grand celebration on May 11, 2014. We thank Ann Miller for creating logos to match the theme.

An annual tradition is installation of a gorgeous Christmas tree at the front of our sanctuary. Thanks to members of the Spruce Up group and other volunteers for this year's effort.

The Long-Range Planning Committee thanks the boards and committees for working over the past several months on a long-range plan for our church. In the process they affirmed our current Mission Statement and developed a Vision Statement. The committee also developed Goal Statements to be worked on by each of our Boards and Committees going forward.
