Fellowship Groups

Outdoor Fun & Fellowship

We’re O.F.F.! Outdoor Fun and Fellowship is an opportunity for us to meet and get to know one another at First Congregational while enjoying the abundance of nature centers, parks, trails and natural resources in the Fox Cities area. These outings all take place within one hour of Appleton, and there are activities of various types and skill levels.

Check the Congregational Life Calendar for our next outdoor adventure!

Wild Women of First Congo

Second Tuesday of the month, 6:00–8:00 PM at Stone Cellar Brewpub

Looking for a night of fun and fellowship? Women of all ages are invited to join this informal gathering. Have a meal or beverage or both! By the way, we’re not really all that wild, so you may need to ask for “the church ladies” when you arrive.
