“Christ has no body but yours, no hands, feet on earth but yours.” –Teresa of Avila
The Christian faith demands that we bring all our resources to bear as we seek to walk in the way of Jesus: our hearts, our heads, and our hands. Our faith in a loving and compassionate God must ultimately find expression in the good, hard work of service and justice. People at the First Congregational Church take that calling seriously. This is one of the ways that we become the body of Christ.
Our local and global Christian service ministries are coordinated by the Board of Mission and Action. Ongoing ministries are described below, and you’ll find much more on the church events calendar, including seasonal service opportunities like the Construct Walk to Prevent Homelessness, our edible church garden, the Christmas Giving Tree, and the Walk Out of Darkness (suicide prevention).
