Our work in the community and the world.

  • We will be working with Interfaith this year to provide gifts for families at Christmas AND we are developing a new partnership with the Roosevelt Community Church to bring families experiencing severe poverty the opportunity to purchase new toys for their children.

  • First Congregational Church has been invited, along with other churches, to provide meals for the approximately 35-40 people who will be living in the Tiny Homes just off Lakeway. The project is opening on October 18.

  • First Congregational Church was a founding partner in bringing the Family Promise program to Bellingham. Family Promise serves families experiencing homelessness by providing stable housing, case management, and four family-selected meal kits per week.

  • Our pantry drive was a success but some items are needed on a consistent basis. You can drop off of the items below on any Saturday between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm at the Industrial Credit Union on Northwest Avenue.

  • The Neighbors in Need offering is coming up soon, and we wanted to highlight a story from one of last year’s recipients of a NIN grant: Peace Congregational United Church of Christ in South Carolina.

  • We’re in the midst of Bellingham’s Climate Action Week, and on Friday at 6:30-8:00 pm Multifaith Network for Climate Justice (we’re a member congregation of MNCJ) will present a workshop on "Greening with Integrity.”
