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 are celebrating 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.


"No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey,

you are welcome at First Congregational United Church of Christ."

 Entering the Passion of Jesus

Picturing Ourselves in the Story

The events of Christ’s Passion, that take place during the last week of Jesus’ life, often don’t receive enough time in our worship and study. Weeks often move so quickly through Palm Passion and Easter we seldom get to take in the drama.

This year for Lent, we focus on the passion story and image where we fit in that story. The drama of Jesus’ last days take place in Jerusalem—each week we will spend time in the places and spaces Jesus walks and reflect on the risks he takes as he moves closer to the cross.
