Enter to Worship
Depart to Serve
These inscribed words on the facade above the front doors have welcomed members and visitors into our Church at 444 East Broad Street since 1931. Beginning as an abolitionist church in 1852, First Congregational Church, UCC, Columbus has always focused on two things; worship and social justice. This focus remains the same today.
Members and friends as a church family to worship and depart, ready to serve those in need in the community and beyond. First Church is a vibrant and active congregation, filled with compassionate people who “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God” every single day.
First Congregational Church, UCC, Columbus is an open and affirming congregation that welcomes all people, regardless of who they are or where they are on their spiritual journey. Join us for worship, spiritual growth, and friendship at both of our Sunday Morning Services, education events, and concerts.
We welcome you!
First Congregational Church is part of the Heartland Conference of the United Church of Christ and the United Church of Christ Central Southeast Ohio Association. With our UCC family, we seek to address injustice through the 3 Great Loves: Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, and Love of Creation.
