Celebration of Ministry and Community

This last Sunday in Worship, we were able to celebrate the great work done for and by First Congregational. There were three celebrations during Worship. We celebrated the baptism of Clara Cochran, reminding us of the commitments we make each time we celebrate a baptism. We commit to being a community of love and support surrounding the baptized individual and family, with no conditions attached. A celebration of ministry and community!

The New Look of First Cong!

In September 2013, Inspired Heights began working on the exterior painting of the church. The project has now been completed. The work took much longer than expected, and presented some challenges along the say, but I think we can all agree the completed painting has been an incredible face-lift for the church.

Rev. Ann Beaty Called by First Congregational

Christian life is not a life divided between times for action and times for contemplation. 
No. Real social action is a way of contemplation, 
and real contemplation is the core of social action.

Ten Years of Prison Ministry

When I was ordained 10 years ago I never dreamed this Sunday would come. Ten years ago none of us had any idea what a prison ministry would actually look like. This Celtic Cross image was just basically drawn on a napkin. It was not a mission statement, or a business plan. At best it was a "might be nice" list. Basically, this church started the Prison Ministry Project with hope, prayer and the Gospel command that we should visit people in prison. It also started with your faith in me.
