Welcome to the First Congregational United Church of Christ website. We're happy that you have come to visit our site to learn more, and hope you will visit us in person (if you haven't already). Our church is a faithful community of believers, who seek to follow Christ, serving God in love and faith.


Our history in Norfolk is long. Our predecessors organized in 1870, joining the United Church of Christ in 1957. In 2020 we celebrated our 150th anniversary. Over the years, we have been known as First Congregational Church and First Congregational United Church of Christ, but our fundamental beliefs have remained the same: Loving God and loving neighbor.

Proclaim not only a new year,

but a new heaven and a new earth.

Testify to new hearts freed from the

chains of shame and sorrow and all that enslaves us.

Each year our kingdom hope is born anew.

Stay open to God's unfailing love.



To encourage healthy communities during this Covid-19 season, we ask worshipers to maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more and we encourage the wearing of masks throughout worship. If you like, there are free masks on the table - our gift to you. Fellowship hour has reopened.  If you are sick, at risk, or live with someone who is at risk, we encourage you to stay home. The situation remains fluid and we will evaluate as we more forward.

Stay healthy, stay hopeful.
