First Congregational is a 5 for 5 Church!
What does that mean? It means we fully support Our Church’s Wider Mission (OCWM). We participate not only in OCWM Basic Support to the Wisconsin Conference and the national ministries of the UCC, but also the four special mission offerings.

Strengthen the Church
Grows the UCC’s future by funding The Stillspeaking Ministry, new and renewing churches, youth and young adult ministries, and lay and pastoral leadership formation.
Neighbors in Need

The Christmas Fund
