Music at First Congregational UCC Corvallis

You will see this UCC Share Your Music logo on a new Facebook page we created: Music at First Congregational UCC, Corvallis.

During this time of social distancing, we are using this page to bring you a series of musical offerings. 

During the months of July and August, we are excited to present "Thursdays at Five (5 p.m.),

an online concert series by professional artists. (Events and bios are on the Facebook page).

Please like the Facebook page, so you will not miss any of the musical events!

We will also continue to post special music from our artists, hymnsings, and meditations in the church's weekly newsletter.
We might not be physically together as a congregation, but we still seek to come into the divine presence with a song!

Be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands;
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into the divine presence with a song!
-Psalm 100: 1-2

Safe Camp is a site located on property of the First Congregational Church of Corvallis that offers shelter, through camping sites and microshelters, to people who are unhoused. The idea is that Safe Camp, as the name implies, offers a safe place where people legally can settle, begin to receive services, and get placed in the pipeline for more permanent housing.   Learn more about Safe Camp here.

A Message From Our Pastor

First Congregational is a Just Peace, inclusive community of Christian faith in Corvallis. We're a church where all are welcome - and where ‘all’ really does mean all. We are real people who care about nurturing love and belonging in the world, most often in the context of Christianity. We worship with tradition and innovation, weaving our liturgies and stories together every Sunday morning. We tell stories from the Bible and our lives, knowing that every story is a holy one.

If you are looking for a faith community to call home, we would love to meet you!

Pastor Jennifer Butler
