Welcome to our church!
We are an active, gracious church, and we want you to be part of our faith community: No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here! This is not just a slogan from our denomination (the United Church of Christ), it's our culture at First Congregational Church of Ithaca. Our church is filled with people who are committed to exploring their faith in community. Some of us come from faith traditions outside of Christianity. Others of us are brand new to Christianity. But all of us are trying to figure out what following Jesus means in the 21st century. One thing we do know: Jesus didn't turn anyone away, and neither will we. We are Open and Affirming and thus LGBTQ friendly, because we believe that God calls us to welcome and embrace everyone. We are a church trying to listen for God's Still-Speaking voice as it leads us to serve our neighborhood and community. Come and experience what the FCCI community has to offer! We look forward to being transformed by you!
