Welcome to First Community
We are a forward-thinking part of the global Body of Christ, historically christened “the
church of the infinite quest.” We are affiliated with The United Church of Christ and
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denominations, two of our nation’s more
progressive theological traditions. We welcome people from any spiritual tradition, or
from no tradition at all—anyone searching to become a more complete expression of
Spirit in the world.
We are an Open and Affirming congregation, inclusive of persons of any nation, race,
sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, political or philosophical outlook,
or socio-economic status. We strive to follow the way of Jesus as our guide and model
toward becoming more fully human; meanwhile, we “recognize other pathways to the
Divine,” and are open to truth from any source, religious, scientific, or otherwise.

What to Expect
As you enter the church you will be welcomed by one of our greeters and ushers. They will be available to answer any questions you may have.
You will be given a worship bulletin that will make it easy for you to follow along. The bulletin will have the words to anything spoken aloud by the congregation, including responsive readings and prayers.
Communion is offered each week at the 10 am South Campus service and on certain Sundays during the year at all of our services. Our communion table is open to everyone. People of all faith backgrounds, baptized or not, all are welcome at our table.
Childcare and Sunday School
Childcare for children birth to 5 is available at our 9 am 10 am, and 11 am services. Parents are welcome to stay with their young child if that will help with their comfort on your first visit. Parents may leave cell phone numbers with caregivers, setting their phones to vibrate.
