If you are planning to visit First Congregational Church for the first time, we extend our warmest greetings. We hope you find this information helpful in knowing what to expect when you come.
First Church has a long history of people who serve God and our community as faithful members, families, and friends.
We proudly welcome people from a broad range of faith perspectives and traditions to our worship services, as well as people who have never attended church before. We seek to honor, respect and love all people, no matter whom they are or where they are on their journey of faith.
There is something for everyone at First Church. Our church is an active place throughout the week, not just on Sunday mornings. There are many ways to participate and become involved in the life of the church. We would be delighted to have you as our guest for worship and hope that you find your time with us to be a blessing to you.
We look forward to getting to know you – and for you to get to know 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.
