Greetings! We are a welcoming, fun-loving, inter-generational congregation, with an active Sunday School, youth programs, and Spirit-filled worship services. We try each week to hear God's Word in fresh new ways, through prayer, music, and preaching. We are growing and reaching out in mission to our community and the world. We welcome all God's people regardless of race or ethnic origins, marital status, sexual orientation, or prior church experience. Are we the right church for you? Come and see!

Open & Affirming Covenant
The First Congregational Church of Lee, United Church of Christ is an open and affirming congregation. We embrace the diversity of our community, and we affirm the dignity and worth of every person as all are created in the image of God. Through our diversity, we strive to be Christ-like and extend Christ’s love, compassion and acceptance to everyone. We welcome all of God’s children with their different ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, gender expressions, sexual orientations, family structures, marital statuses, economic statuses, races or abilities into the full life and ministry of our congregation. We understand that repression and discrimination of any kind is incompatible with the gospel of Jesus Christ’s principles of love, peace, justice, grace and compassion. We are unified by the grace of God, the love of Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit and the love we have for each other. No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

“Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7

 
 

Statement by the Founders

"It is the aim of this church to present a religion as considerate of persons as the teachings of Jesus; as devoted to justice as the Old Testament prophets; as responsive to Truth as science; as beautiful as art; as intimate as the home; and as indispensable as the air we breathe."
