The Meeting Ground

Coming to your Thursdays this Fall: The Meeting Ground!

First Congregational Church of St. Louis is embarking on a new and exciting journey this fall as we kick off The Meeting Ground on Thursday nights for ten weeks. This is a weekly opportunity for our faith community to come together for music, meal, and learning. Through this new endeavor we hope to strengthen relationships and dig into the fundamentals of our faith. We will also focus more on intergenerational opportunities for our youth. The Meeting Ground will culminate in our annual FCC Thanksgiving dinner on November 15. Check out the new Thursday night schedule!
