Welcome to The Church of the Open Door

We are an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ in Appleton, Wisconsin. We're committed to tolerance, justice, service and exploration, not dogma and rules. So no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

Are you new to us? Start with an overview of who we are and what we believe by visiting our What if? page. You are invited to connect with First Congregational through your favorite social media and by subscribing to our electronic newsletter.

We always have lots going on! Please check out our general news feed (left) and the news pages under each menu category to see what’s happening today.

Membership Exploration Classes are offered periodically throughout the year.
