What to Expect…

Welcome

First Congregational Church, fondly known as First Church, unites people of diverse beliefs, backgrounds and social circumstances around a common loyalty to Jesus, a common passion to serve the world and a common purpose: to love God with heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves. Our ideal is an open minded, warm hearted, spirit lifted church. We seek to express, in all dimensions of our life together, the mind and Spirit of Christ. We would love to have you join us.

Relax and Reflect in the Memory Garden

A vision only a year ago, our First Church's Memory Garden is blooming!  Please stop by to relax and reflect on loved ones who have passed before us.  It is located outside the Chapel entrance.

Many thanks for everyone's contributions and to the volunteers who had the vision to make this happen.
