(314) 962-0475    —     Join us for worship on Sundays at 9:55 AM

Welcome to First Congregational
Church of Webster Groves

United Church of Christ


We are a gathering of Christian people where life-long friendships can be built and where we hope anyone can feel at home.

We are a caring community of dedicated and supportive volunteers and staff providing programs for spiritual nurture and societal change that engage young and old alike.

We are a covenantal church. By this, we mean that we value relationship over doctrine. We are usually less interested in what people believe than in how they act toward others. After all, if there is a sure indicator of one’s beliefs, it is in how they treat their neighbor.

As far as we’re concerned, Christians ought to be able to think differently about matters of religious belief and still worship and live harmoniously in their church.

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Seeking Christ In Each

Each human being bears the image of God, our Maker and Parent. We take seriously the understanding that Christians should be able to differ in matters of belief or practice and still worship and live harmoniously.

Serving God In All

All people deserve the nurture and support of God’s abundant grace and eternal love. We recognize this grace and love through the life and witness of Jesus Christ and the ongoing activity of the Holy Spirit.

Open and Affirming

We are an intentionally Open and Affirming congregation with a long history of abiding God’s Word and Way. Spiritual guidance and genuine hope are here, no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey.
