Following the Youth Message, children go to Sunday School
We have Sunday School for children and youth from
September until mid-June. All children are welcome to attend
if their parents so choose.
Yes, we have children in worship with us!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me."
Reflecting that spirit, children are always welcome in worship.
We strongly believe their participation in all aspects of worship
helps them to develop their faith.
Children are invited to participate in communion
or to receive a blessing during communion, as their parent desires.
No matter who you are or where you are on your journey, you are welcome here.
Every church has its own special personality. Here at FCC, God’s Spirit has been moving for over 100 years in no small part because the congregation is so involved in serving those who are in need. Perhaps the most compelling part of our ministry is that it is nothing unless the members and the friends of the church create it. We are a community led by lay leadership. We depend on each person to get involved because each person adds to the whole in their own unique way. At FCC, all are called to serve.
The mission of the First Congregational Church is to be a caring community, seeking to know and celebrate the love of God joyfully by following Jesus Christ, in our worship, fellowship, service, and outreach to God's world.
We welcome all people to our church. The rainbow flag by our entrance is there so that anyone who is looking for a church where they are welcome as they are and for all that they are, knows that they are welcome at FCC.

through prayer, connections and compassion. We are compelled by
our faith to follow in the path of Jesus Christ, by both listening to and
spreading God’s love to all people.”
