Worship at First UCC
Worship is a place to bring our whole selves: vulnerable and strong, mournful and celebrating, healing and hurting, growing and seeking, questioning and faithful.
Through word, prayer, and song, our hearts are filled, and we go back out into the world ready to love, serve, and
live in the precious reality of God’s world.
First UCC worships at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings, in person and online. Worship follows a similar format from week to week, including music, readings, a children’s message, a sermon, prayer, and blessing. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month. September through May there is ASL interpretation on the second and fourth Sundays. Music ranges from classical to gospel, and you’ll have the chance to enjoy the sound of our historic 1876 Johnson Organ. We gather for worship bound together by a covenant and a common purpose, not by uniformity of belief or doctrine. Everyone is welcome! Read more about our values here.
In addition to our Sunday morning worship service, we offer a contemplative worship experience every Sunday evening at 6:00. Led by a group of lay leaders from our church and other local congregations, it features music, contemplation, candlelighting, and communion.
We’re glad to have you join us, no matter where you are in the world! First UCC offers online worship via Zoom and a YouTube livestream.
