We are happy to meet you!
Worship begins at 10am, you can enter either through the 17th Street entrance or the Washington Street entrance (by the pillars).
Dress is whatever you want to wear that day.
You will see people dressed in everything from dresses/shirts/ties to jeans to sweatpants. Come in whatever makes you feel comfortable.
We love having children in worship and don’t worry if they squirm! There is a time for the children to come for the Children’s Sermon with Pastor Melanie during worship and if they would like they can go with Ms. Iris for Children’s Church after that. They will be brought back to you in the sanctuary before the end of the service. If they would rather stay in worship with you that’s fine too!
We have a staffed nursery downstairs if your young ones would rather play during worship as well.
Typically our service lasts about an hour. If you would like to drink some coffee and eat some yummy treats we have a casual time to chat in our Fellowship Hall following worship.
We, the members of First Congregational United Church of Christ, welcome you.
