A Message From Our Pastor
Welcome to First Congregational Church of Ft. Lauderdale UCC. We are part of the United Church of Christ (UCC) which is a mainstream denomination consisting of over 5,600 churches and 1.3 million members! Here you will find that everybody is somebody, and Jesus Christ is Lord. No matter who you are or where you are in life’s journey, you are welcome here! We are “open and affirming” and diversity is our middle name!
At our church, we enthusiastically lift up that First Congregational Church UCC is a welcoming, justice-minded Christian faith community where we believe that “God is Still Speaking”. At a time when religion is too often portrayed as narrow-minded and exclusive, many are raising their voices for an alternate vision:
*Where God is all-loving and inclusive
*Where your mind is nourished as much as your soul
*Where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the King of Social Justice
I invite you to experience the total fellowship of the church — worship services, fellowship times, special events, and interesting studies. You name it. We’ve got it and YOU are invited!
I encourage you to get involved in the activities and mission work of our church. There are all sorts of opportunities and missions, like our weekly meal program for the hungry. We address the question “Am I saved by faith, works, mercy or grace?” with the answer YES!
The other members of our faith community and I look forward to getting to know you and serving our community together. Welcome Home!
