You Are Welcome Here

First Congregational Church of Anchorage (FCC) has a long history in Anchorage, AK. It 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 hear and share.

This Week in Worship

Communion Sunday


Psalm 27 -“Shelter of Courage”

The psalmist invites us to find a place within the shelter of God’s care. We are challenged to claim that shelter, not so that we can hide, but so we can live bravely and boldly.

The other reading for Sunday is about Jesus living with courage in the face of threats. The imagery draws upon agrarian life and animals. Knowing and claiming the shelter of God is powerfully freeing and dangerous to the violence and frenzied clamor of our current days.
