First Congregational Church in Milton is a growing and energetic church family. We are constantly seeking ways to be not only Jesus’ hands and feet but also his voice, ears and heart:
We worship Christ at our center.
We celebrate God’s presence through study, children’s programs, prayer and music.
We build community through small groups, fellowship and by overcoming challenges together.
We serve each other, our neighbors and the world through outreach.
We welcome and include all to our growing congregation.
We are a church that values opportunities for Christian formation for our families, youth and children. We want our children to discover a vital faith in Jesus Christ that shapes and guides them in all of life’s choices to be compassionate, prayerful and service and justice oriented people.
We are a church that values communal worship and the opportunity for spiritual growth through inspirational music, thoughtful preaching, meaningful prayer and the ability to be challenged to grow in our faith in Christ.
We are a church that values opportunities to help others, locally and globally, with their practical needs, as well as calling people to faith in Christ. We recognize that we have an obligation to offer charity and to also speak for justice for the “last, the least, and the lost.”
JOHN 17: 18
We are a church that values personal and spiritual growth in Christ found in worship, adult education opportunities, retreats, and small groups. We desire to grow deeper in our prayer life and our knowledge of scripture so that we grow in our relationship with God and continue on our faith journeys.
We are a church that values being a community of faith. We value respectful communication, tolerance of diversity, our intergenerational character, our joyful and fun-filled gatherings and caring for one another in practical ways in times of joy and sorrow.

United Church of Christ
We are a member congregation of the United Church of Christ: a collection of more than 5,000 congregations across the United States with about 1 million members all together. The United Church of Christ’s purpose is To love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and our neighbor as ourselves (Mt. 22). The UCC’s vision is United in Christ’s love, a just world for all. It has a history of advocating and working for justice, and is well known for their proclamation that “God is Still Speaking!” and a mission that is United in Spirit and inspired by God’s grace, we welcome all, love all, and seek justice for all. Our faith is more than 2,000 years old, but our thinking is not. We are always listening for where God is calling us next.
