The UCC Helping Lead the Sanctuary Movement in the Trump Era

The United Church of Christ has a new prophetic calling in our new political reality. After a vitriolic campaign season during one of the most controversial elections in U.S. history, many are worried about what's to come, especially those who found themselves targets in a strategy to mobilize voters through scapegoating immigrants, refugees and Muslims. This harsh rhetoric, paired with concerning Cabinet appointments, shows a growing agenda of white supremacy, patriarchy, misogyny, racism and environmental degradation that will impact vulnerable populations in potentially devastating ways.

Gratitude & Challenge

As we approach the end of 2016 and set our sights on 2017, it is important to take time to reflect on the past and imagine the possibilities ahead. I encourage all of us to take a few minutes to write down (not just hold in our head) all we have been grateful for in 2016. We have had times of pain, frustration and challenge, but I would guess even in those moments, there have been people or events that have given us reason to be grateful. It's always amazing to me that people who come to the church needing assistance have no problem listing all of the ways they are grateful. Gratitude is energizing! Gratitude can help us push the "reset" button in our lives and in our relationships. The New Year gives us opportunity to begin anew. How many pages can you fill?

Merry Christmas!

The staff has been hard at work preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The Advent season has been a flurry of activities. We will gather together Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to remind ourselves of how the birth of Jesus changed the world. We hope during Christmas you will be surrounded by friends and family, but we also want to remember those who will struggle as Mary and Joseph did to find a warm place to call home. May our prayers be for a world filled with peace and justice for ALL!
The staff of First Congregational wishes each of you a Merry Christmas!
Ann Beaty, Don DeBruin, Jill Farnsworth, Jennifer Flaten, Agustin Garcia, Jerry Hancock, Eldonna Hazen, Kristin Kanitz, Jeff Rabe, Alfonso Reyes, Bob Zeier

HOPE SHIMMERS!

On November 27th a new Liturgical Art piece was installed for Advent at First Congregational. The art floats above the seats in the Sanctuary calling us to look UP and open ourselves to a new Advent season. This project started back in July, using a process taught to us by Nancy Chinn, a well-known liturgical artist in California.
