Welcome to First Congregational Church, A Different Kind of Church.....................

Who Are We?

We are a congregation of friendly and open people who have discovered the freedom and joy of genuine faith. We are parents, singles, teens, children, and seniors who live out our faith daily in our varied walks of life. As a member of the United Church of Christ, we come from an unusually broad mix of denominational backgrounds, including Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Baptist, Episcopal, Lutheran, and Quaker.

An Inclusive Community

Founded on the principle of religious freedom, we are a church with a rich history of progressive thought and action. A strong mission of outreach to the socially and economically disenfranchised is central to our ministry. In all aspects of our life and mission, First Congregational Church welcomes and affirms people of every race, age, gender, marital circumstance, sexual orientation, physical or psychological ability, economic condition, ethnic origin and theological tradition.

“Not Just A Fancy Dresser: Joseph's Story” He went from favored son, to the pit of existence, to national hero and leader. We resume our frequent series of Biblical character studies with this four-week look at the rise, fall and rise again of Joseph from the Book of Genesis. Along with the well-known episode of his receiving the famous “coat of many colors” from his father, Jacob, we will also examine Joseph as dream interpreter and the characteristics of his highly successful years as a leader in Egypt.
