First Congregational Church logo



The members of First Congregational are students of the Master, commissioned to share the light of truth to those who walk in darkness, and committed to "bring peace" to a community as broken as we are. It is the gospel of God's grace that empowers us to love our neighbor and share with them the joy of walking with Jesus and the hope of his swift return.

In cooperation with the Holy Spirit, First Congregational strives to:

  • Faithfully proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Demonstrate Christ's love through compassionate service
  • Encourage the global church through prayer and stewardship
  • Affirm the unity of the church though joint work and witness
  • The church supports local radio ministry and joins Samaritans Purse in preparing shoe boxes for children around the world through Operation Christmas Child. The church also supports those in full-time missions work to include:
