Introduction

First Congregational Church of Kalamazoo is a warm and inviting community rooted in faith.  Our church has been ministering to the needs of our community since 1835.  Over the years, we have been challenged to rebuild, renovate, and expand our facilities so that we could continue to meet the needs of our growing faith family and spread our warmth.  Our community has always risen to meet that challenge.  And while faces have changed, one thing remains the same…our commitment to Christ, to one another, and to the betterment of our community.

Our church today is an active community comprised of over 200 households. Led by a dedicated pastor and strong corps of lay leaders and volunteers, there are an increasing number of ways that people of all ages can participate in the spiritual, educational, social and service ministries of our church and community. 

Yet, despite our strong heritage of activity and accomplishment, some significant challenges still remain.
