Welcome to First Congregational Church, UCC

We are First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ in South Haven Michigan, and you are welcome here.

We invite you to live in openness to the voice of the Still Speaking God.

Through God’s grace, this congregation is committed to being a loving and welcoming community of faith. We recognize, celebrate, and give thanks for the many diverse gifts of God among us. We affirm that all people are created in the image of God and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God’s grace and love.

In Galatians 3:28 Paul wrote: “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, male or female, for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.” We declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming Congregation, welcoming into the full life and ministry of the church, persons of every race, culture, age, gender identity and gender expression, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, marital status, education, and economic status. We especially welcome all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in the church and society.

On Sunday, November 15, 2020, First Congregational Church, UCC in South Haven MI, voted to officially become an “Open and Affirming” congregation. This is a designation within our denomination and affirms the dignity of all people and our desire to extend the hospitality of God to everyone.

God is Still Speaking

“God is still speaking,” reminds us that God still has a lot more to say. Since 2004, Still speaking has worked with thousands of United Church of Christ churches and individuals across the country to make religion relevant again and to extend an extravagant welcome to all – because no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here. Here at the United Church of Christ.
