Welcome


Welcome to the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Geneva, Nebraska!

In our congregation, we try our best to embrace the message of our UCC denomination that says, "No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here." There is strength in our diversity, and even greater strength that we can leave those differences at our door and join together in the love of God and each other in this family that we call home.

Welcome to our Interim Pastor

Pastor Davis is coming to us from Eagle, Nebraska. He is married to Vicki. They have 4 children and 3 grandchildren.

He graduated in 1995 from Westminster Seminary in California with a Master in Divinity. After serving as a pastor from 1996 to 2001, he chose to work outside the church to help send his children to Christian school after being homeschooled by Vicki.

Working as an electronic tech for Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad since 2002, he hopes continue serving as providing pulpit supply and hopes to return to full time ministry in a few years after retirement.

“If you would like preaching which believes the Bible is the Word of God , then you will like me preaching, “ Pastor Davis says. He shares the law and the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in every sermon, has a passion for preaching God’s Word and has a heart for the lost.

Pastor Davis has served in many positions in church life such as elder, Sunday School teacher, Bible teacher and pulpit supply.

He is thankful to be serving at First Congregational UCC and looks forward to sharing with the congregation this month.

Pastoral Care is provided by Kim Dunker. She can be reached at 402-759-8081
