As you enter the church, a greeter will welcome you and answer any questions you might have. If you need assistance or to use the elevator, they will be happy to help. Once inside the sanctuary, an usher will give you a bulletin to help guide you through the 10 am service.
Our services feature reading, preaching, prayer, and music and are open to worshipers of every age. At times, you will be invited to stand, sing, pray, be in silence, or read responsively. First Congregational UCC likes to offer a mixture of different types of music and worship styles to help us achieve what is called a Blended Worship experience. We hope this keeps the ritual of worship fresh and of interest to all types of people.
First Congregational UCC is one church family that meets together to worship and hear God’s call to mission in the world. We are a diverse congregation of all ages, backgrounds, and tastes, which is reflected in our blended style of worship service.
There are red pew pads at the end of each aisle. Please fill it out to help us know of your presence. This is of course optional, but you might find it helpful to receive our Holy Hotline updates and to receive our monthly newsletters.
At our services, we maintain the ancient Christian practice of receiving an offering to support the church. We welcome your gifts and encourage everyone to live a life marked by generosity. If you are unable to give financially, please consider an offering of time or talent to the church, another organization, or a neighbor in need.
