We invite you to come to First Congregational UCC just as you are. Lake City draws many visitors and tourists, especially in the summer months when boating and lake activities abound. Relax when you come to worship with us. Some people dress in casual clothes and others in finer attire. Yet even Jesus said, "Don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we wear?' Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously."(Matthew 6:31,33 NLT) Come to our church in whatever fashion and seek to have God fashion your life.
We are handicapped accessible with an elevator lift for wheelchairs. Access is through the entrance on the East side of the church, from the large parking lot.
We want you to know that you are invited to share in Holy Communion, which is part of our worship on the first Sunday of each month. Through this sacrament we experience Christ's love and we are reminded that we are his followers serving others as Christ served us.
The bread and the juice are distributed in the pews so that worshippers may remain seated.
Kids are welcome in worship and they have a special opportunity for conversation and interaction with Pastor David during the "Time For Children." This happens at approximately 10:20, and afterward the kids go to their Sunday school classroom where everyone age 3 to grade 6 meets together for a time of Bible stories, activities and learning. Our teacher and helpers use the wonderful curriculum called, "Deep Blue."
Kids also participate in the life of the church in other ways. They occasionally make treats in the kitchen to serve during hospitality time, and our musical kids regularly offer mini-recitals during worship.
Our worship service is usually one hour, and may last an extra 10 minutes when Holy Communion is shared.
Following worship we enjoy a time of hospitality, with treats and beverages served by volunteers.
