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.

“Borderlands and Rebirth”

Following a significant earthquake in Alaska, we may have a renewed appreciation for this week’s reading in Luke 21:25: “There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on the earth distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves.” Jesus is often a disruption to our lives, and there is no way around it.

Sometimes we are on the verge of something, standing on the border of a new day that makes yesterday seem strange in its naiveness. Advent is such a season, at least it can be. An earthquake might just be an appropriate description for what we are awaiting and anticipating. The very foundations of the lives and societies we have built and place ourselves on with such certainty can in an instant seem wholly inadequate for the days ahead. Blessed Advent. Blessed rebirth into this new day
