We can't wait to get to know you.



About Open and Affirming

Why not join us as we look to a future with hope?


About Us

We belong


​Like you, we don't exist in a vacuum but rely on a larger community. We belong with others who have a passion for the liberating good news.


Part of the United Church of Christ, we are in a family of some pretty interesting people. Check us out to see just how rich and varied we are.

Climate Change Sunday

Stewarding the earth and its creatures.

Sunday. March 22

10:00 a.m. and lunch to follow

Susan Golden, Environmental Educator/Scientist, will be part of our worship service at 10 am and present a brief summary describing the environmental lay of the land and the health of our planet. Right after church Susan will present Climate Change, Facts & Solutions, a primer to make us aware and highlight steps we can take, individually and as a community.


The United Church of Christ has an active blog site; the Rev. Brooks Berndt is UCC Minister for Environmental Justice, with an eagerly awaited new book out soon provocatively and justifiably titled, Cathedral on Fire.


We at First Congregational United Church of Christ are pursuing concrete action points to become a greener campus. These are critical times, these are exciting times for involvement. For a Just World. Just saying.
