At the heart of what it means to be O&A is to ground everything we say and do in love. That means you are loved, accepted, and valued no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey! We know there are far too many places in our lives where we hear that we are not good enough, or not worth being loved. Whether its from the advertisements we see to the people around us, we question our value and worth. We might even hear it from ourselves, from that voice of self-doubt within us.
Well we want you to know that you are loved and valued, just as you are.
No matter what tries to tell you that you aren’t worth being loved and appreciated, we will show you how loved you really are. To put it simply, when you walk through the doors of First Congregational UCC, you will enter into a faith family who loves and supports you, just for being you. No matter your race, age, ethnicity, ability, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, family structure, or economic circumstances, you are loved just as you are.
We have learned that love can truly change the world,
and we hope you join us as we work to change it for the better.
