First United Church of Christ is part of the United Church of Christ denomination. We believe the church’s mission is to change lives — individually, systemically and globally. The United Church of Christ Foundation was founded to be able to respond to the needs here in our community, our church and in the world.
First United Church of Christ is located at 207 W. Horah St.
