The season of Advent is upon us! During this special season of the church, Pastor Lauren will be preaching a series of sermons titled, “Angels Among Us: Do Not Be Afraid.” Each week then focuses on a different theme. You can check out the schedule for this incredible sermon series by downloading our December Messenger (found under the Newsletter section on this site). Worship services are held every Saturday at 5pm and Sunday at 10:30am. We hope you you can join us this advent season!
Don’t miss out on this casual and fun way for families to worship God together! There’s always plenty of “messy” activities, a short celebration service, and a light dinner. Messy Church is for all people, no matter what stage they’re at in their faith journey and of any age. We meet on the third Sunday of every month at 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm in our Parlor. Please use our Canal street entrance, where we are handicapped accessible.
Our First UCC Relay for Life team continues to work hard throughout the year to help fight the fight against cancer! Even though the Relay for Life walk has already happened for 2017, we will continue to have fund raisers for The American Cancer Society in an effort to raise money for research in finding a cure. We would love for you to join our team and help us in our efforts, we won’t stop until there is a cure for cancer! Call us at 339-5871 to become a part of our First UCC Relay for Life Team!
From the Pastor
As the pastor of First United Church of Christ, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our church website (with the help of Tomatillo Design)! We have worked very hard to make this website as user-friendly and informative as possible.
We, as a family of faith, come from many different faith backgrounds and experiences…and here, in all our diversity, we come together in community, bound together in the common mission of inviting all people to faith, relationship, and service through Jesus Christ.
As you explore our site, you will see the various ways in which we are growing together in faith, relationships, and service. You will find us gathering in worship, enjoying times of fellowship and fun, and serving our community and our world as we participate in the various ministries of our church.
Come join us… come and find a place where you can make a difference in the world!
Grace and peace,
Pastor Lauren Allen
