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.


Watch this spot!  

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.
