Worship at First Congregational Church
At First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, in Elkhart Indiana our worship style is blended. We draw on the strength of traditional hymns and scripture; but also infuse energy and dynamic engagement into our worship experience through the children’s moment, special music, and through lively sermons with real-world relevancy. We are intentional about how the use of imagery, silence, and sound are used to create a sacred and meaningful worship experience. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, if you come to this sanctuary seeking God you are welcome here… we also want our worship to reflect that welcome!
Our Rite of Communion is open to all. We have simple bread and a gluten free alternative available as well as new wine – aka grape juice – so that all may be welcome to share Communion on the first Sunday of every month.
There is parking in the back (West side) and on the North side on the corner of Franklin and Third Streets. The Sanctuary is on the South side of the building. The facility is laid out as a rectangle with a central memorial garden. You can reach the Sanctuary by following signs from any doorway. Our members and guests dress in a wide variety of formality from casual to Sunday best. All are welcome!
