A Day of Celebration!

What a grand Sunday we had celebrating the 175th Anniversary of First Congregational Church!  Our morning Worship featured a Reunion Choir, a challenge to work as hard, if not harder than our ancestors for social justice from Rev. Ron Buford, and celebrating communion with this year's first communion class.  The sermon will be available on the website in the very near future.  Assisting in leading Worship was Wisconsin Conference Minister Rev. Franz Rigert, and Associate Conference Minister for the Southwest Conference and former minister at First Congregational, Rev. Joanne Thomson.

First Congregational United Church of Christ Celebrates 175 years!

This Sunday, October 4, 2015, First Cong will celebrate exactly 175 years since the congregation was chartered on October 4, 1840.  The day will begin with 10:00am worship, with Rev. Ron Buford preaching.  Ron was the architect of the United Church of Christ’s ‘Stillspeaking’ campaign.  Former General Minister and President of the UCC John H. Thomas said, “Ron leaves a permanent legacy on the UCC for which the church will always be grateful.  The Stillspeaking Initiative will continue to be a transforming movement within the life of the church and Ron’s creativity and devotion have been a driving force behind it.”  Ron is currently the Pastor of the Congregational Community Church of Sunnyvale, UCC, Sunnyvale, California.

Accessibility means ACCESS!

It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.

Anniversary Celebration Plans for September and October

“It is well for a church to keep its anniversaries, that in reviewing the story of its life it may be awakened to new thankfulness

and trust and holy consecration as it beholds the tokens of Divine guidance through all its hardships and dangers and successes.”

~ Rev. Dr. Charles H. Richards on October 10, 1880 at First Congregational’s fortieth anniversary celebration

 

Please join us for these two Sundays that are part of the ongoing celebration of our 175th Anniversary!
