Welcome to First Congregational Church
Corvallis, Oregon

We're glad you are here!


Sunday Worship

10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary

 

 

Friends,

Council met on Sunday, September 25, 2022 to discuss returning to the sanctuary this Fall, as we continue to live with the presence of COVID-19. We reaffirmed our touchstone for making these choices: to make our gathering as safe as it can possibly be and to take seriously our commitment to care well for one another.

I think the way the church gathers (whether in work or worship) should always pay close attention to our interdependence, the goal of collective access, leadership of the most impacted, and collective liberation - meaning no one gets left behind.

During our council meeting, I heard all of those values being affirmed in conversation as we reached collective alignment around the following decisions:

* Worship will return to the sanctuary on October 9th with masks strongly recommended and highly encouraged

We recognize that this decision will not meet everyone's preference (it is not the most nor least restrictive policy) ... but it feels like the right choice for us as we lead with a spiritual commitment to safe space and care of body and spirit.

with love,
Jen, Council and Church Staff

 

 

Children will be invited to remain with their families during worship or opt into a worship space of their own with Jaqui Eicher in the Fireplace Room and Library.

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
