The Mission of First Congregational United Church of Christ is to WORSHIP God, WELCOME all who seek God, and EXPRESS our faith in actions.
Mark your Calendars:
June 12-16 is our Ukulele Camp for kids grades 3 and above. 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. each day. Ukuleles will be provided. No previous experience or music reading ability is necessary. We’ll learn some basic chords and techniques, a few songs – and hope to share in Worship the following Sunday.
Brochures with information and registration (limited to 10 participants) are available in the church office.
Please see Rev. Michael Waltenberger if you have any questions.
First Church Adult Choir
The Adult Choir of First Congregational UCC rehearses weekly from Labor Day to Memorial Day and sings at the first service (9:00) each week, with additional services on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday. During the Advent season and in May the Adult Choir presents a special program of music and worship. We have a variety of backgrounds, skill levels, and ages (currently ranging from teenagers to septuagenarians), and we always welcome new members. Please contact the Music Minister, Rev. Michael Waltenberger who serves as director and organist, for further information.
First Church Bell Ringers
First Ringers play a five octave set of Schulmerich Bells (hand bells) ranging from C3-C8. First Ringers is currently looking for a director. Interested parties please call the church @ 877-2216.
First Ringers played for the 9:00 am traditional service once a month (except summer months). Handbells provide a source of endless fun, entertainment and achievement. They enhance the beauty of our delightful services...inspiring people to worship and bringing peace and joy to all. Learning to play the hand bells requires some time and attention (and a knowledge of how to read music, please). We are always looking for some additional ringers &/or substitutes so if you are so inclined, please email or call First Congregational United Church of Christ. We also have a three octave set of hand chimes to enhance LOGOS worship skills as well as using them during services.
