All church services and programs continue to be suspended at this time. As you know, this is an evolving situation and we will keep you updated as best we can.

First Congregational Church will continue to provide spiritual guidance and care. We welcome you to call or email if you have any pastoral needs or questions.


Our Church Council feels that it is best to continue to "stay the course" as outlined in a letter written by our Wisconsin Conference Minister, Franz Rigert. Franz recommends that UCC congregations not resume in-person worship or other activities in our church buildings until the public health gating requirements are met. Read the full letter here.


Since we are not currently conducting church services , we wanted to let you know that you can drop off your pledge payments by using our mail slot to the right of our Webster Street entrance. Or you can simply mail it to the church. Thank you!


As a way to stay connected while our church services and activities are suspended, we are pleased to provide you with our YouTube video series, Worship in the Gap. Huge thanks to Brett Dimmer for producing the series!

Thank you to those of you who have made a financial pledge to support the church this year. Unfortunately, we are quite short of our goal. For those of you who have yet to turn in your pledge, please do so as soon as possible. For those of you who have already pledged, the Church Council is inviting you to make a one time financial gift, or a pledge increase, to help off-set the shortfall. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Church Office, we will put you in touch with the Church Council or our Financial Administrator, Owen Madson.
