Welcome from our Pastor

I am so pleased you have found our Web Site. Don't know what path you took to find us, but we have a saying in our church, "No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here at First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ!" Those are not polite, empty words to me or to the congregation I am blessed to serve. Our Open and Affirming Statement says it best, but I also like the song I learned as a child: "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world." I would update that old favorite by saying that whether you're young or old, gay or straight, Christian or non-Christian, Theist or Atheist, Muslim or Jew; all of these titles which have a tendency to divide folks in the world, will not prevent the members of First Congregational Church from embracing and valuing you and respecting the journey on which you have traveled to this point. We would like to get to know you and learn from you and grow from our relationship. We hope you might like to do the same. We are a wonderfully diverse congregation who I have found are worth getting to know! I hope you'll choose to "check us out" some Sunday soon.
