United in Spirit
and inspired by God’s grace,
we welcome all, love all,
and seek justice for all.
The First Congregational Church is a faith family
where people from all races, genders, sexual orientations and backgrounds come together to:
We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. We welcome into our full life and ministry, children of God, people of every race, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, ability and economic status.
We believe that we can all grow and practice a unity of faith that will transcend our differences and together be a living testimony of God’s steadfast love. We embrace the amazing diversity of God’s creation and believe everyone is created in God’s image.
Therefore, everyone is unique, valuable, and loved by God.
We believe every child of God deserves our respect and honor.
We practice warm, welcoming, extravagant hospitality, as we, together, continue to learn new things about God.
Soup for the Soul: God’s Gender
Wednesday, January 15

Does God have a gender? What pronouns should we use for God? Over a bowl of soup enjoy a workshop on this theologically rich topic. We will look at Biblical scholarship and arguments from theologians across the spectrum. Deacons bringing minestrone soup to share; additional food contributions welcomed but not required.
