We emulate Jesus by...
Expressing love radically
Worshiping joyfully with purpose
Exposing and fighting injustice
...as we grow spiritually together




First Church UCC recognizes that, as individuals, we all have a desire to belong and connect. How you choose to connect can be a very personal and challenging process.

We offer a welcoming and inclusive community in which you can feel free to discover the way you wish to connect to others, to the community around you and with the God of your understanding. This may be discovered by engaging in our justice and outreach programs, or by engaging in our special events and classes. It could be discovered by attending our Sunday worship service experience.

No matter how you choose to connect, discover and engage with our community and no matter who you are and where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!


"I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." - Brené Brown
