First Congregational Church Anchorage Alaska2020-07-03T12:31:18-08:00

You Are Welcome Here

First Congregational Church of Anchorage (FCC) is an open and welcoming Christian community joining together as people learning, growing, and acting in faith. Come as you are.

Each member is an equal, vital, and voting member of the congregation. When many voices and imaginations come together, including the many which society and churches have silenced and ignored for centuries, new possibilities arise for all of us. Come and discover what you might experience and share.

Update from Moderator, Louise Smith & Rev. Jacob Poindexter:

First Congregational church of Anchorage is suspending all non-essential in-person gatherings in our building until further notice. This is in response to the state of Alaska shelter-in-place order.  Council will regularly reassess this measure and update through emails, Facebook, and this website.

What this means:

All in-person gatherings are cancelled until further notice. All gatherings and meetings need to find alternative ways to meet remotely or postpone meeting. This includes all meetings and classes of the church and outside groups. If your group needs assistance gathering remotely, please contact the church office (office@fccak.org : 907-272-8363).


Weekly Worship:

Worship will be held online only. A link will be provided by email, on the Facebook page, and below in the “This Week in Worship” section. Worship will follow our typical flow. It will include prayers, readings, music, sermon, and even congregational singing! There will also be a bulletin in the usual Friday update and on the website for you to follow along and join in. Consider printing the bulletin beforehand so your screen is free.

Classes and meetings:

Regular classes and meetings will still happen. They will be held remotely; the links will be provided through The Daily Update. If you would like to receive these links, sign up for the daily update at the bottom of this page. All you need to do is click the link and join the room. You may be prompted to allow use of your camera and/or microphone.
