National United Church of Christ Web Site – A
wonderful site to find out more about the denomination First
Congregational Church is affiliated with. The site also has
terrific devotional and national church news section. First
Congregational Church is in a covenantal relationship with the United
Church of Christ denomination. The United Church of Christ (UCC)
is a denomination of 1.1 million members. The UCC is a
denomination which welcomes all people with a non-judgmental theology
and accepts both women and me into positions of leadership within the
church. Each local church is autonomous from the UCC national
church and the UCC national church acts in an advisory capacity, not a
dictatorial capacity, in its relationship with the local church.
