As we draw to the end of our series, “Gifts of the Dark Wood,” we will gather together to commemorate the last days of Jesus’ ministry on earth by entering his experience through story and ritual. We invite you to join us.

 

PrideFest 2016

We will once again have a table at PrideFest of the Palm Beaches, reminding the LGBT community in Palm Beach County that we stand with them, that God loves them unconditionally, and that there is a church that accepts them for who God has created them to be.

This year we will be following up Pride weekend by inviting those we meet to a spaghetti dinner on April 3rd after worship.

If you would like to take a shift at our table, see Barry Nicholson.

Nehemiah Action 2016

On Monday, March 14th at 7:00 PM we will gather with 2,900 people of faith from 22 other churches all over Palm Beach County to hold our public officials responsible for the problem of homeless ness in our county.

At First Congregational United Church of Christ, we practice faith, mercy, and justice in community. One of the ways we practice justice is by, once a year, coming together to exercise the power that we have in our number to make positive changes in our community.

Our goal this year is to turn out 90 people (our average worship attendance). You should be invited by one of our Justice Ministry Network Members. If you need a ride, we will be car pooling from the church.

We are looking forward to doing justice together!
