First Congregational Church is the church on the corner. The corner of Park Ave. and Bushnell in Beloit, WI that is. First Congregational Church is one of the oldest congregations in Beloit, establishing Sunday, December 23, 1838. After time passed a new building was built only to have it burnt to the ground on a stormy night in August of 1998. Our present building opened up three years after the fire on August. 12, 2001.
Our Meeting House was never meant to be a symbol, but a place to meet on Sunday morning, for the Word to be preached, to hear the living God and a place for prayer to be offered.
We believe the character of our God is reflected in the building. Our building is plain, pure, clean, simple, and rich in history. We pride ourselves in a common simple motto, all are welcome. No matter where you are on life’s path, you are welcome.
