Church History

The First Congregational Church of Reno purchased our current location in northwest Reno after years at various locations in the downtown area since our founding in 1871.

We built our first building here at the beginning of Sunnyside Drive - currently our Education Building and Social Hall - in 1958. It was designed to serve all activities of a growing church - including worship services - until we completed the current sanctuary in 1963. Our third building (the "Annex") was added in 1995, right next to the sanctuary, to serve our nursery and provide additional meeting rooms.

It has been a long, exciting and productive journey together - sometimes easy, sometimes not. Our church, like most, has experienced challenges in the past. It's what families do! Some of these challenges concerned our progressive philosophy - especially as we became dedicated to welcoming ALL who seek to know - and live - the teachings of Jesus.

We have found joy in developing our faith, and in serving our community and faith family, for these past 148 years. Now we look forward to planning our year-long 150th Anniversary in 2021!


No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
