Open and Affirming Sunday: Let's Celebrate!

The saying "timing is everything" is certainly true for First Congregational this Sunday. The second Day in October is the Sunday we celebrate being an Open and Affirming (ONA) congregation. This year we celebrate 22 years of being ONA. The decision twenty-two years ago was not done in haste, but following 3-4 years of study and education.

World Communion Sunday

World Communion Sunday is a celebration observed by several Christian denominations, taking place on the first Sunday of every October, that promotes Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation. The tradition originated in the Shadyside Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1933, and was adopted throughout the US Presbyterian Church in 1936, and subsequently spread to other denominations. In 1940, the Federal Council of Churches (now the National Council of Churches), led by Jesse Moren Bader, endorsed World Communion Sunday and began to promote it to Christian churches worldwide.

The Prison Ministry Project and Solitary Confinement

At noon on October 1 at the State Street entrance to the Capitol, the Prison Ministry Project will help lead a rally to reduce the abuses of solitary confinement in Wisconsin prisons.

This not a theoretical or public policy issue, as our colleague Kate Edwards points out,

for some inmates it is a matter of life and death. I hope you can join us at the Capitol.

Reach & Renew Executive Council Recommendations

Nearly three years ago, First Congregational embarked on the Reach & Renew capital campaign. The congregation responded with $2.1M in pledges. The main reason for the campaign was to raise funds to replace our heating system. The heating system was replaced in the entire building. Even air conditioning was added to the Sanctuary and Dining Room.
