No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey,
you are welcome at First Reformed church!

Although we’re one of Lancaster city’s first and oldest churches (1736), our Christian community has evolved toward radical inclusivity:  families and individuals; well-established and just starting out; working and retired; gay and straight.  We seek to meet the spiritual needs of our members while providing opportunities to minister to the needs of the community around us. You don’t have to choose between your intellectual integrity and your faith, between science and Christianity, between compassion and holiness. The ‘Still Speaking God’ we worship at FRC lives between and among them and us all!

Changes at First Reformed

On June 29 First Reformed said farewell and Godspeed to Pastor Bill Worley. He has been elected to be the Conference Minister and President of the Pennsylvania Southeast Conference of the UCC. In his new role he will guide 175 diverse congregations in the ministry of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Janet Boyd-Weidler will join FRC on September 1 as our Interim Pastor.

The major focus of Pastor Janet's ministry during the last twenty five years has been serving 11 interim pastorates in congregations of varying sizes, locales and challenges.  In each setting, she has helped the congregation learn from the past, become stronger in the present, and gain new vision and readiness for the future. She says she is looking forward "to the opportunity to travel the promising journey of the interim time with First Reformed Church UCC, a congregation that seems to blend history and tradition with attentiveness to the ‘Still-Speaking God’ and with responsiveness to the ‘new thing’ God is always doing in our midst…and a congregation which truly lives out the gospel calling to inclusiveness, service, justice and compassion.”
