Sanctuary Renovation

Here's an update on our efforts to renovate the church sanctuary. Please click here to see a slideshow and learn more. 

 


Stations of Lament


This art installation, created by Matthew Nelson, our artist in residence, is a unique and moving meditation on the events of Good Friday. It was on display in our deconstructed Sanctuary on Good Friday 2021.

 

Stations of Lament consists of seven images that are accompanied by scripture, psalms, and poetry. Each station slowly walks us through the trial, crucifixion, and death of Jesus, in a combination of the Stations of the Cross and the Seven Last Words.

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
