This coming Sunday evening, October 29, at 6:00, Jeff Suddendorf will host an Inquirer’s Gathering for all those who are considering becoming members of our church. This is an opportunity to get to know one another and to learn more about the life and work of First Congregational Church. If you are new to our community, please come join us.


The Congregational Church in Delevan created a set of rainbow colored doors to remind people of the inclusive nature of the United Church of Christ.  They are sharing the doors with other churches throughout the Wisconsin Conference and we are privileged to be able to display them during the months of September and October.  The doors read: God’s Doors are Open to All.


Our Church School meets one Sunday each month at 10:00. We also celebrate a Family Service each month at 10:00. All children 4K through 7th grade are invited to participate. The next Church School Sunday is November 12. Please take a look at our Church School Schedule.


Each Sunday morning during the 10:00 service, we provide a nursery for children newborn through 4-years-old. Care is provided by our 8th grade Confirmation students and their families. Parents are required to register their children, and to sign their children in and out of the nursery. We want to do our very best to make the nursery a safe and secure environment.


Each Wednesday at Noon, you are invited to meet Jeff at church for lunch and Bible study. The group always takes time to visit before reflecting upon the lectionary reading for the upcoming Sunday. Coffee is always provided, but please bring your own lunch.


Men in the church are invited to gather for breakfast every Thursday morning, at 8:00, at the Dockside Deli. The group often has fun considering a Question of the Day. If you are able, please come and join the conversation. 


A gentle yoga class is held in Fellowship Hall every Wednesday evening from 5:15 - 6:15. The cost is $10 per class. For more information, please contact Susan Niederfrank at


An AA Group meets at our church every Sunday afternoon at 3:00. For more information, please contact the church office.


We continue to offer a gluten-free option for receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The gluten-free communion bread is purchased commercially, and prepared separately, so that there is no chance of contact with our regular sourdough communion bread.


If you wonder what you missed, copies of last Sunday’s bulletin are always available on the literature rack in the church entryway and CDs of the service are always available in the church office.
