...to the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Crete, Nebraska. We are pleased that you have decided to check us out. There are some resources on the ministries page you might like to check out. There are many ways to get involved, or just observe some time to be still and receive. Also, stop by the sanctuary some time.
Our church, founded in 1871, has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself a time of sabbath in the fellowship of Christ. We strive always to be a church that works to extend the reach of Christ in our community. Our effort to do that can be seen in our events that are open to the public, our local and wider missions, and the involvement of our members in many parts of our community. Join us as we work to extend Christ's reach!
This is happening at UCC:
Wednesdays at the Church in LENT!
STARTS MARCH 19TH
We will try to make some connections happen in Lent. We will fill in the time between our children’s choir and our adult choirs with activities that help us with our time. For elementary and middle school students we will have supervised homework time with tutors from Doane College. Because all work and no play make for a dull Lent, we will also have organized activities after homework is done. We will share a meal at 6:00 p.m. for anyone that wants to eat together on Wednesdays. At 6:20, book discussions around a theme will happen. We have childcare provided for families with preschool aged children and babies. All this happens before our choirs rehearse, or confirmation class, or council meetings.
It is hoped that this time at church will be fun and informative and also provide a “FREE” evening at home since no one has to cook or do homework once they get home. Look for accurate schedules posted at the church and on our website.
