OUR MISSION: We are a Christ-led church committed to expanding Jesus' ministry.
No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey you are welcome here. First UCC is a place where we come seeking to hear God's voice and to apply Jesus' teachings to our every day lives. We want to find ways to relate the gospel in relevant ways each day in our lives. We all experience the joys, struggles, and sorrows of life. First UCC is a faith community that provides support and encouragement during those times.
You are invited to come as you are and find a spiritual home with us.
Worship is on Sundays at 10:30 am.

Our 2018 Stewardship theme is-
What Shall We Bring?
