An Invitation from Pastor James Pennington

I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to The First Congregational United Church of Christ of Phoenix! One of the beloved sayings of our denomination, the United Church of Christ proclaims, “Our faith is two thousand years old – our thinking is not!”


First Church shares a progressive, biblically-based, inclusive faith in God, who we believe was revealed in Jesus of Nazareth. We seek to follow Jesus’ example in our daily living, struggling with the question “What does it mean to be authentically Christian in our day and context?” We want to invite you to join us on this journey.

First Church is a diverse, open and affirming congregation. We believe diversity is a gift God has given us and celebrate the wonderful mixture of ages, races, sexual orientation, and economic classes present in our congregation. We enjoy spirited and uplifting worship, filled with good music, eager participation, Spirit-filled prayers, and challenging messages. We offer various opportunities to grow in faith, including Christian education opportunities for children and youth on Sunday mornings, mid-week Bible studies in the morning and evening, movie nights, book club discussions, learning opportunities and a host of other activities.

We would be privileged to have you join us. We feel confident that if you do, you will find a spiritual, welcoming home here.
