Over the past two years we have celebrated the 150th anniversary of our congregation and the tenth anniversary of our Senior Minister. We are in an exciting time of growth and renewal as we look to what the future will hold for First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. With this in mind, our board of trustees voted to undertake a strategic planning process this year. A small group of people who represent different aspects of our church life were asked to serve as a planning to guide the process.

This project gives us an opportunity to explore more deeply who we are, whom we are here to serve, and what we are called to do and become. We are calling it The Road Ahead. Now, The Road Ahead team needs your help. We want to hear from each of you because your voice is vital to the work we will be engaged in throughout this year. Many of us have found First Church to be the home we longed for and we want to ensure that the course we set will put us on a path to a bright future for those of us who love this church – and for all those still looking for a place to belong.
