Welcome, and thank you for visiting First Congregational United Church of Christ online.

We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

Our Mission

agree to disagree and unite to serve,

For God is still speaking.



Our church offers a traditional setting for your most sacred celebration.



Services are held in the Sanctuary on Sunday morning. Worship starts at 10am.

Youth Church is Wednesday Nights at 6pm.

Any additional services will be announced in the bulletin, newsletter, Facebook and on calendar page of the website .

Worship Sundays at 10 AM

We are an Open & Affirming Church



The group that volunteers to deliver meals is small and there are going to be occasions when one of more has other commitments, is ill, or is otherwise not available. We were lucky this time that Great Western Bank employees took one route as a service project and that Sue and Scott volunteered to fill in.


Please seriously consider volunteering to deliver meals to those who are not able to get out. Due to Covid restrictions we are not going into homes but leaving meals in coolers on the doorstep and takes only about 30 minutes. We deliver next the very last week of this year. Go along with a driver to see what it is like or give me a call and we can talk about it.   Lynne Forbush  ~~ 880-5379 

New Pictorial Directory 


We will be working on taking photos to put in a new directory for the church.

They will be snap shots taken at church before or after services. This will not be a fancy professional project. Just a simple snap shot so people joining the church will have an idea of who is who!

It will be an ongoing process and there are no specific time lines.


Thanks for your cooperation,

                                       Dawn Engel 

If you have a photo of yourself that you would like to use for the church directory please email it to the church email address,
