Our Commitments

To the Future
2020 Vision: Be the Church for today, and tomorrow!

Our building is in need of repair and restoration to make it the welcoming, safe and sustainable place for worship, education and service to our community and our world that we want it to be.

We are nearing the end of Phase I of our 2020 Vision Campaign and will soon proceed to Phase II - with plans for improving lighting, audio/visuals, landscaping, and other finishes as funds allow. We thank those who have given or are continuing to contribute to the 2020 Vision Capital Campaign through pledges. Your faith and generosity are making this work possible. Thank you for helping us achieve our goals to make these buildings more safe, welcoming, and sustainable.

Together we can answer God's call to be the church for today and tomorrow. Check out the latest construction photos.

To Each Other

Since the demands of love are great, we covenant to support the church and each other with our prayers, our gifts, and our selves."
- First Congregational UCC Membership Covenant

We fulfill our covenant to each other through:

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. We believe in a God that is still speaking, a God that is all-loving and inclusive. We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul.
