I am so pleased you have found our website. 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!" 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 – titles that have a tendency to divide folks in the world – the members of First Congregational will embrace and value you, and respect the journey 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.
If you are seeking a church that celebrates God’s inclusive love and values “right actions” more than “right beliefs,” First Congregational could become your spiritual home. I hope you'll choose to "check us out" some Sunday soon.
