First Congregational United Church of Christ
The First Congregational United Church of Christ is a pillar in the Vancouver, Washington community. Built in 1961, the building is distinguished from others with its 105-foot tall steeple, sweeping roofline shaped like the bottom of a boat, intricate stained glass skylight, and an iconic cross that can be seen for miles.
An early morning fire believed to be set by an arsonist destroyed the inside of the church, including historic stained glass windows and the sanctuary. The community gathered in silent distress, sharing emotions of fear, sadness, and horror as the fire department battled the three-alarm fire.
After two years of collaboration, innovation, and community participation, BELFOR and the community celebrated the re-dedication of the First Congregational United Church of Christ. Though the rebuilding process was initiated by an act of intolerance, the congregation spoke of resilience, peace, and hope.
