Welcome Pastor Adam!

With great joy we would like to announce the calling of our new settled Pastor, the Reverend Adam Hange. Pastor Adam is a member of the Next Generation Leadership Initiative (NGLI) of the United Church of Christ. Pastor Adam and his family come to us from Plymouth, UCC in Shaker Heights, Ohio where he has been an associate minister. We are grateful to the members and friends of Plymouth UCC who have supported and nurtured such a wonderful minister for the past seven years. We eagerly anticipate Pastor Adam beginning his ministry with us on September 1, 2016.

A Word of Welcome from the Interim Pastor


Welcome to the web-site for First Congregational United Church of Christ in Hillsboro, Oregon. Whether you are a long-time member, a regular attender, a recent visitor or someone who is looking for a church home, I hope you will find information here that is useful to you. Our congregation is a vibrant, dynamic, diverse community of faith, full of active, interesting and faithful people. A wide variety of paths have brought us together. We are young, old and in-between; assorted skin-tones and ethnic backgrounds; variously oriented regarding sexual and gender identity; creatively gifted in many areas and interests; life-long members, brand new Christians and still searching for what we believe. Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Our congregation is in a time of transition. Long-time pastor (Diane Dulin) has retired. I am here serving as Interim Pastor while the congregation prays, discerns and prepares for what comes next. But being in transition does not mean that our mission, our ministry and our life together gets put on hold. There is still lots going on. God is very much at work in the midst of this community.

Explore the various sections of this web-site, ask questions and come worship with us. I believe you will find a warm, welcoming and inviting community who will receive you with open arms and open hearts.

Grace and peace,
Ellen Green
Interim Pastor
