We're a different kind of church:
We value and respect diversity in the ways we express our faith. We
enjoy thoughful dialogue about faith issues. We encourage each other
to work for justice and to care for people in need in our community and

At the First Congregational Church, we know God is still speaking. We
invite you to learn more about us, our ministries and our programs. If
you are seeking a faith community of thoughtful, compassionate people
who are open to diversity and committed to caring, we invite you to join
us at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday morning for worship and fellowship. Our

express our faith in our lives.
We believe God still acts in our life and our world and continues to help us

our community, and to respond to God's call to them directly.
Although we cooperate in mission together, each congregation is free to
act in the ways it feels to be led by God.
We are involved in our community in many ways and are deeply
committed to ministering to the needs of individuals and society, and to
seeking justice and liberation for all people.
