Welcome to First Congregational UCC


We are an openhearted, justice-seeking, everybody-loving Christian community in downtown Portland seeking to follow the guiding principles of the gospel. We believe we are beloved: just as we are today, and as we are becoming.


We are theologically progressive: our celebration of the Holy Mystery is as wide as the night sky, and as close as a friend's hand.  We prioritize voices and leadership from the margins of power.


Our calling is to live into the kindom of God more fully by cultivating community, practicing hospitality, and publicly demonstrating and advancing God's peace. Come and build the Beloved Community with us.
