You’ll have opportunity to hear and participate in a wide variety of music genres at First Congregational UCC, from traditional hymns in English and sometimes Spanish or South African to meditative Taizé songs and instrumental pieces. Perhaps the spirit will move you to join the choir and share your musical talents with all. We hope you will find that the music enriches your worship experience.

You’ll see people in jeans and flip flops and you will also see people in their “Sunday best.” What you wear on the outside is not as important to us as what’s in your heart. Every style is welcome. Come as you are. You are welcome here.
We are a congregation of families; young, old and in between. We welcome the joyful noise of small infants as well as the questions of young children. Their joyful noise is welcome in the sanctuary. We have activity bags for children with puzzles, crayons and coloring pages. We also provide a nursery for those children who would prefer to play with toys and our talented nursery staff.
