National UCC Honor

First Cong is one of three churches being awarded by the National UCC for the United Church of Christ Disabilities Ministries Award for 2015. The award honors congregations for their disability ministry, architectural changes which effect greater access and mobility, and outstanding achievement in efforts to provide inclusion and opportunities for all. Specifically, we were cited for our “radical hospitality and promoting acceptance of people with both mental health concerns and people with differing kinds of disabilities.”  Eldonna will be accepting the award at General Synod, on behalf of the congregation. Thank you to Jeanne Tyler for nominating our church.
