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.
Senior Pastor, Rev. Kevin M. Pleas
“It is my time at First Church that helps me "recharge" my spirit with faith and hope for the coming week!”
“A path which leads me forward in a journey of grace and love with my family, friends, and community."
“Cherished elements of core traditions live on at First Church…”
“I hope others will find such joy when they come here.”
Eleanor Flint Campbell
“We treasure our many friends and colleagues in this wonderful congregation.”
Susan and Bruce Felmly
“I love First Church because of my involvement with Women's Connection.”
"We visited several churches after moving to Manchester. In our worship at First Church we were overwhelmed by the great preaching, the magnificent music and the very welcoming congregation. We feel truly blessed to have been led to membership at First Church."
Ross and Marion Palmes
