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, to increase LOVE of God and neighbor.

Worshipers may choose to maintain social distance or wear a mask through worship -- it is your choice. If you like, there are free masks on the table as you enter Fellowship Hall for worship - our gift to you. Fellowship hour is open to all immediately after worship. If you are sick, at risk, or live with someone who is at risk, we encourage you to stay home.
