We welcome all


Feeling confined by labels?

You've come to the right place.

Gay or straight, rich or poor, confident or doubtful, happy or sad, believer or not--this is the place for you. 

And if you don't fit into a category, all the better, we can't wait to get to know you.

Open and Affirming

We have roots


Our roots are deep and nourishing, but we are not stuck in the past. 

Proud of our heritage, we are also listening for the Still Speaking God who is with us now and into the future.

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.


Worship with us this Sunday

10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary

This September

Welcome Back!

Sunday, September 25 is Homecoming Sunday and you are invited!


Whether you are a long time member or have never been to church we hope you will join us for a morning of worship and food starting at 10:00a.m. After a spirited worship service we will enjoy a picnic with games for all ages, so come on down!

Walk-In Dinner

Help is still needed to prepare and serve dinner to about 150 people who will stop by for dinner at the Hackensack Shelter this Friday, September 2.


You can prep in the morning or serve in the afternoon or both!


Why not spend a little of your Labor Day weekend, laboring for the hungry?

Comm-Union Service 

On September 4 we will host the Pascack Reformed and United Methodist churches at a joint communion service here at First!


Join the long standing of sharing communion with folks from three congregations.


And remember: No matter who you are or where you are on your journey you are welcome as well!

Monday's at Momma's

On September 19 at 7:00 p.m. we will restart our weekly DND (Dine and Discuss) event at Momma's Kitchen in Montvale. This weekly dinner and discussion is a great way to meet people and to share conversation about things that matter.


First topic: "What I Did On My Summer Vacation" and why Sabbath matters.
