Worship at First Congregational United Church of Christ is a blend of tradition and innovation. We are a community that welcomes all to worship – and all to witness. As a congregation within the United Church of Christ we are a congregation that engages all with the spirit of Christ and the presence of God.

Our service is a space where people of all ages, beliefs, practices and identities, are welcome. Come as you are – whether this means formal or informal, dressed up or dressed down, and experience the love of God and the presence of Christ.

Children are a valued part of our community. They are always welcome in worship and to engage in the spirit of worship – whatever form that takes. As Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Luke 18:16). We love the voices and energy of children in worship.

Our worship service is a place where all are welcome and where we encounter God through Christ in prayer, music, scripture and fellowship. Come and experience God's love and the grace that is present in the church.

We celebrate communion the first Sunday of each month with both wine and grape juice so that all can partake. All are welcome at Christ's table. Children are welcome under the guidance of their parents.

One of the special services we hold each year is a special outdoor gathering by our church peace pole to celebrate the International Day of Peace.

We also perform many special ceremonies, such as weddings, baptisms, funerals, and confirmations in our church.

Our church is known for its beautiful stained glass.  Click here to see it.
