About us

Worship Update During COVID: Join us for worship in person at 10 AM on Sunday mornings. Safety protocols continue to be practiced as we show love to our neighbor. During this time of phased regathering, we are asking that you keep your mask on in loving concern for those who are not yet vaccinated.  We want this to be a safe space for persons of all ages, including children.  Our kids programs have resumed.  We also want to sing, and masks continue to be recommended when singing indoors. 

A recording of our Sunday morning worship service is available on our YouTube channel by Sunday evenings.  Subscribe to our YouTube channel to view future or past services.  

First Congregational Church, UCC is a progressive, open, and affirming, Christian community located in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The church building is at 2503 Main Street, at the corner of Main Street and Losey Boulevard. We have more than 500 members of diverse backgrounds from all over the Coulee region. Our members don’t just go to church, we are the church. We strive to learn more deeply about Christ, and how we can put his teachings into action.

We are an open and affirming congregation, living by the knowledge that God loves each of us and desires a relationship with each of us. No matter where you are in life’s journey, you are welcome here. Although we are an independent, self-governed congregation, we enjoy association with other churches of the United Church of Christ through Wisconsin, the United States, and the world. We are one of 63 UCC churches in the Northwest Association, and one of 233 UCC churches in the Wisconsin Conference. Worldwide,  the United Church of Christ is composed of about 1.2 million members in 5518 congregations.

We hope that this web site will answer any questions you may have. We hope even more that you will take a Sunday morning to join us, as we love to meet new people for fellowship and worship!
