Message from our Executive Board


As I hope you have heard, our Executive Committee made the difficult decision to pause our worship beginning this Sunday, March 15. We are so thankful for leaders who face such decisions prayerfully, thoughtfully and faithfully, especially when such decisions are difficult. One of the things we discussed last night was how vital community is right now.  


What will community and worship look like if we are not meeting in person?

·      -- Our deacons and Thandiwe are available for pastoral care, prayer and conversation any time. Please reach out to them.

·      -- Videos and manuscripts of my sermons will be emailed to you by Sunday morning at 10:00 and they will be on our Facebook page and website. If you need/want these manuscripts mailed to your home, please contact the church office.

·      -- Join a Sunday morning Zoom Meeting call at 10:00 am. We will share joys and concerns, a time of prayer and communion. All are invited to participate.

·      -- Join a Thursday evening conference call at 7:00 pm. We will share joys, concerns, and a time of prayer. Call-in numbers are the same as for Sunday.

·      -- Reach out to one another, your family, neighbors and friends. Telephone calls and good old-fashioned snail mail are particularly powerful forms of communication right now.

·      -- Check your email and the church’s Facebook page for prayers, reflections and updated resources about COVID-19 and recommendations for our wider communities.

·      -- Don’t have Facebook or email? Our church officers will be working to implement a phone tree system to keep everyone connected.  

·      -- Please mail Financial gifts to the church to support our ongoing ministries. Our Trustees are working to enable giving through our website. We realize that many of us have been impacted financially by the coronavirus and that contractors and those working in certain fields face uncertainty about income in the weeks to come. Please continue to give to our church at whatever level you can so that we can continue to minister to and support those in our community in need of care and assistance.


Thank you for being patient as we use unfamiliar technology and learn as we go.

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.






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.
