First Congregational Church of Webster Groves
United Church of Christ
We are a faith community where life-long friendships can be built and where anyone can feel at home. We offer children a nurturing and positive environment in which to begin or continue their spiritual development. We offer youth and adults an atmosphere that includes a multiplicity of perspectives expressed and received with respect and love.
We are a caring community whose dedicated staff and supportive volunteers organize programs that engage people in all walks of life. Whether it is our youth programs, Sunday School, service opportunities, music ministries, social or study groups, or traditional but progressive worship, you can find something that matches your interests and talents to help you grow spiritually in your faith journey.
We are a covenant community. Our congregation is based on promises made before God and with one another – not on a set of beliefs or standards. In affirming our covenant, we gain strength for walking together in Christ’s footsteps.
We would love to be your community, as we live out our motto, “Seeking Christ in each, serving God in all.”
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.
