Welcome to First Congregational Church
of Webster Groves
Hi! We’re glad you’re here!
We’d be thrilled to have you join us for Sunday Worship is at 10:00 am — in person
or via our YouTube channel.
We require masks in the Sanctuary and in the halls of the church.
If you want to attend in person, please check our Worship page for more information.
Recordings of services are available from YouTube.

We have “Coffee Hour” after worship at 11:00 am in Memorial Hall — come grab a donut and get to know people.
We’d sure like to get to know you. Masking is optional in Memorial Hall.
First Church is a safe place to be yourself and to expand your heart and mind. We celebrate our great diversity as people – all our many colors, abilities, identities, ages, orientations, backgrounds, perspectives, and beliefs.
There aren’t many places in our world where that happens anymore, and we definitely don’t do it perfectly here. We have our differences, but Christ calls us to love one another just as God loves us, even those we may be tempted to consider unlovable.
We are a faith community determined to treasure everyone and the earth we share, and to be ready to have our hearts changed and our lives transformed by those we work with and serve.
We are a church of families and individuals bound together in a common promise, to seek to know the will of God, to experience the joy and struggle of discipleship, and to work for peace and justice among all people.
Seek Christ in each. Serve God in all.
Seeking Christ In Each
Every human being is a child of God. 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 unconditionally welcome all people of any age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, culture, ability, or sexual orientation into our community of faith and affirm the worth of all people as unique individuals made in God’s image.
Covenant of 1977
We who are called of God into this Christian community covenant together:
To seek to know the will of God,
To experience the joy and struggle of discipleship,
To proclaim in word and deed the love of Christ, and
To work for peace and justice among all people.
We trust God’s promise of grace and forgiveness,
and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our trials and rejoicing.
