WELCOME To first congregational church OF COLORADO SPRINGS!

We are an Open and Affirming, Just Peace congregation dedicated to offering a spiritual home to all people. 

We actively encourage people to love, learn and grow with us. Support for diversity in thought, in community, and in all manner of contribution is vital to our interactions with one another. 

We believe that in order to deepen in faith, people must have the freedom to explore. We embody a progressive Christianity in which “God is still speaking” and we actively listen to better understand how to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly.” Our openness to wonder is understood both as awe and inquisitiveness. 

We believe that the work of the church must influence societal structures and that by our being, 

we work toward creating a just world. 

The richness of our community-in-God inspires, transforms, and empowers us to improve the lives of others and work toward the common good. Micah 6:8 serves as our theological touchstone.

    CLICK THE IMAGE TO VIEW - Updated January 22, 2021

    What we believe is not displayed in the words we use but in the lives we live. When we investigate who we are as Christians, we should reflect on how we spend our time and our financial resources and who we are deep inside.

  • FCC's response to covid-19

    As the number of cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to increase, it is our highest priority to protect the health and safety of our congregants, staff, and our community. In an effort to help minimize potential COVID-19 virus exposure and transmission, we are keeping our doors closed, and taking the time to deep-clean the entire facility. In an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and health of all in the congregation, and in accordance with Center for Disease Control recommendations to combat the spread of COVID19, FCC will continue to remain closed for church services and group activities until further notice. In the meantime, we will continue online-only Sunday services, in addition to a few OUTDOOR in-person services. (Please check the calendar for dates.) As CDC guidelines change, FCC will make adjustments accordingly. During this isolation period we will continue to evolve and add-to FCC online offerings. 

  • united church of christ

    The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).
