Where First Congregational Church is at the corner of Losey Boulevard and Main Street in La Crosse. We are right below Grandad Bluff. Our parking lot is across Main Street from the church, and handicapped parking is available directly in front of the church. The church is handicapped accessible in all areas.
When From Labor Day to Memorial Day, the Sunday service is at 10:00 am. Sunday School for Kindergarten through 8th grade kids and nursery care for younger kids is provided. During the summer, the service starts at 9:30 am. Summer Sunday School and nursery care are available. Services generally last one hour and include the message, scripture, hymns, a children’s message, and choir or other music.
Communion is observed on the first Sunday of each month, as well as at certain special times during Lent, and is open to all Christians. It is performed with bread and grape juice as the elements of communion.
What should I wear to church? For us, the answer is: God cares about you, not your clothes. This is reflected on any given Sunday. You will see some folks wearing suits and dresses, and others in jeans and t-shirts. If we had a most common style of dress, it would probably be business casual, though for most people, the key word is comfortable.
After church Come join us in the community room for fellowship, coffee and cookies. Sunday school usually runs about an hour and 15 minutes, giving parents time to get out of services and get a cup of coffee before the kids come back.
Deciding on a church that works for you This is an important process, and one which we respect at First Congregational. We know no church is perfect for every person, and that everyone who is visiting churches will look at a number of factors in deciding if a certain church is a good fit for them.
