Connecting with Community

At First Congregational Church of Loveland, we recognize that each of us comes with our own backgrounds and experiences and that we are each on our own journey of faith.  We celebrate this diversity.  We also recognize that faith is not an individual endeavor.  We are living in a time of unprecedented complexity where the challenges have never been bigger.  Especially in a time such as this, we need community and meaningful connections with one another.  On this page people of all ages will find ways to connect with others and to continue to grow in their own faith within the context of community.  And if you have a group that you would like to explore within the community of the church that you don’t see here, let us know.


Open and Affirming (ONA) – Let’s Talk About It


We will offer a series of meetings starting in November to talk about the meaning of being an Open and Affirm­ing Church (ONA) in the United Church of Christ.  We will begin with three sessions, each offered at two differ­ent times: Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at the church, and Sundays after worship (starting about 11:30 a.m.).  You can attend either the Thursday or Sunday sessions, or you can alternate between them.


The schedule is:

Thurs. Nov. 9   /  Sun. Nov. 12

Thurs. Nov. 16 /  Sun. Nov. 19

Thurs. Nov. 30 /  Sun. Dec. 3


Children

First Congregational Church invites children into a community where they can experience being loved and can be offered ways and places to encounter God and grow in their faith.


​​​​​​​

Youth

Youth are often called the future of the church, but First Congregational Church recognizes that our youth are the church of today. And we have much to learn from accompanying them on their journey to adulthood.


​​​​​​​

Adult

First Congregational Church recognizes that learning and spiritual growth is a lifelong endeavor. While everything we do in the church is the "curriculum" from which we learn and grow, we also seek to provide informational opportunities for adults seeking more focused experiences.

Called to Care

Caring is a central Christian practice.  As Christians we are called to love one another, to build one another up and to show compassion with one another. The Called to Care Team works together with the pastor to help nurture a culture of caring and Christian hospitality.

Music

Music is an essential part of our worship life. On any given Sunday, we may be singing bluegrass, folk, gospel, traditional hymns, contemplative chants, playing violin, or enjoying triumphant classical music on the organ. There are many ways to participate in the music ministry here. 

Food, Fun, Fellowship

Through the year there are many opportunities for fellowship.

From Hayrides, to making krautburgers, to fellowship after worship on Sunday mornings, people of all ages enjoy connecting with others and serving the community.  



Find the perfect fit for you! We have many ministries to choose from.

We believe that fellowship is a huge part of the calling that Jesus has given us to do. What better way to fellowship with each other than to join a ministry. Check out all the ministries we offer today. If you have any questions feel free to give us a shout! We would love to help with anything you need.
