Mission Statement of the Staff of First Congregational Church
Guided by the Holy Spirit, our mission is to teach the Biblical principles of love, care, and respect for each other as exemplified through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Constant in our struggle to interpret the will of God in our lives and the life of the congregation we serve, we will lead by our example of prayer, outreach, teamwork, and creativity while nurturing the particular gifts of each person.
