Reflections on the March 22nd service 
by a member of our church family.

We are a congregation of the United Church of Christ made up of members from many different backgrounds. Our worship services include a wide variety of music and liturgy from many traditions. We have a strong Christian Education program , a vibrant music program which includes several vocal and handbell choirs, and sermons which connect our busy, modern lives with the ancient wisdom of the Bible.

Our church members are active in ministry to the community- sheltering the homeless, stocking food pantries, and providing programs for developmentally challenged adults. We support many non-profit organizations, and our building serves as home for numerous groups such as Girl Scout troops, 12-step programs, a Japanese language/culture school, a community nursery and kindergarten enrichment program, a Bag-Pipe band and a children's theatre program.  We also share our space with the River Dell Korean Baptist Church

If you are looking for a faith community which will welcome you, provide you opportunities to serve others, as well as a community which will invite you to join in experiences that will nurture your faith and personal growth, we at First Congregational Church urge you to consider participation in this congregation. We welcome your inquiries, your visits, and your regular fellowship with us in this important work.
