Welcome

COVID-19 Statement:

Effective Monday, October 5th, we are requiring all visitors to wear masks when inside the building.

Community groups have been permitted to use the lower floor of the building for regular meetings. If you would like to use the building, and are willing to follow our COVID-19 protocols, please contact the main office (260) 665-9362. The building remains closed to general visitors.

We meet for worship via Zoom at 9 am (contact the office for login details) and for limited, in-person worship at 11 am. To sign up for limited, in-person worship, first read the guidelines lines here, and call or email the office to register. You are not signed up to attend worship until you receive confirmation from the office manager.

We will update our website here as things change, as they are likely to do because this is a fluid, ongoing outbreak at this time.

Thanks for your diligence and care of our beloved community, here at FCUCC and outside our walls.

With blessings for health and care of one another,

Scam Alert!

Any request asking for the purchase of gift cards appearing to come from any church staff member is a scam. No one from our church staff will ever email anyone asking to purchase gift cards for any reason.

You Are Welcome Here

First Congregational United Church of Christ, as an inclusive and caring Christian community, welcomes into its full life and ministry persons of every race, ethnic background, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, criminal history and faith background. As we serve those within our church family, the community and the world in the name of Jesus Christ, we celebrate each person’s uniqueness and look forward to the gifts they bring to us.

We welcome everyone! Period.

Our Life Together

A rich worship experience is at the heart of our community as we gather each Sunday morning. But we also know that if we are to follow Jesus, our ministry lies outside our doors. Our members are active volunteers at Cahoots Coffee Cafe, the Faith Community Health Clinic, the Community Anti-Violence Alliance and Project Help. Our members knit scarfs to raise money for the Wounded Soldier Project and they make endless meals for others.

Some of our members faithfully stand at the courthouse as the Women in Black once a month to protest violence in all its forms. Others mentor youth at Cahoots. They facilitate MRT groups for youth who are at risk. Still others work to protect the natural environment through Acres, Inc..

We are a people who believe our God desires justice, and that means spreading God’s love in the world.

We keep learning! Over the past few years we have participated in anti-racism training as a part of the UCC’s Sacred Conversation on Race. We have welcomed author Philip Gulley and enlisted him to speak in our church. We have read books by Gulley, Marcus Borg, Joan Chittister and enjoyed long and insightful resulting discussions. We have participated in weekly Bible Study and special Lenten classes.

We also have fun! Our families participate in weekly summer picnics, Winter Weekend, canoe trips and parish group activities ranging from potlucks to game nights.

And oh, by the way, did we mention that we worship at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday…and we would love to have you join us!
