Through the love of our Creator God, we welcome you to the First Congregational Church, Eugene, Oregon!  We are a progressive Christian community and an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ.

Banner-YouAreTheLightNo matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey, 
you are welcome here!

You are welcome here if you know what you believe, and you are welcome if you have no idea what to believe,

for we will provide a safe space for you to explore and to grow.

You are welcome here if you are married, or if you are single, a parent, or the child of one,

for we will be a warm and welcoming family to you.

You are welcome here if you feel alone and you are searching for connection and meaning,

for here, we are all the body of Christ and together we will find our way.

You are welcome here if you are carrying a heavy burden or if you are feeling the joy that comes with life’s triumphs

for we are here to help you find the strength you need and to celebrate with you.

You are welcome here if you are seeking ways to heal from spiritual wounds,

for we strive to embody God’s grace and the love shown so clearly by Jesus in everything we do.
