Our Present

Our Present Is Our Journey

First Congregational Church is on a journey of revitalization. We are revitalizing our historic sanctuary (built in 1908) to restore its historic beauty while incorporating modernizing features that allow us to meet the challenges of faith and life in the 21st Century. While we revitalize the physical sanctuary, we (the members) are also in the midst of a spiritual revitalization. We understand our history as a source of strength, wisdom and tradition; we also recognize that we exist as a church apart from any physical sanctuary. Therefore, in addition to physical revitalization, we are deepening our personal and collective relationship[s] with God and our faith traditions (Congregational, Christian, Evangelical and Reformed).

FCC(UCC) has vital ministries for all ages and stages of life including: dynamic preaching, relevant bible studies, a highly esteemed music ministry (chancel choir, jazz chorus and jazz vespers, gospel ensemble, youth and children’s choirs, Meridian Herald, etc), a confirmation program for children, the Church After Party for Youth, 55 Plus and caregivers support groups. We are also redefining and revitalizing our local and global missions. We have much to offer; yet we will remain incomplete until you join us.
