FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF LOS ANGELES

STOP BY FOR A PRAYER U STAY FOR A LIFETIME

I am no longer able to keep up the Memorials pages. The listings that are already there will continue to be posted for your convenience. We have sold our home and are leaving Los Angeles, but are keeping our membership in the church as this will always be our church home.

Thanks. (Your webmaster)

One important aspect of the Congregational Church that makes it different from other churches is its Independence from outside authority. The other is the fact that it is member/owned, member/run. The right to independent thought and belief is highly important to the Congregationalist. They will call you wrong, but will fight to the death your right to be wrong.

 

The Great Organs of First Church comprise what is said to be the largest church pipe organ in the world. It currently holds 348 ranks, 265 stops, 240 voices, 18 divisions and 22,000 pipes. The Seeley Wintersmith Mudd memorial Organ, constructed by Ernest M Skinner, was installed in the Chancel in 1931. In 1969, the Frank C Noon Memorial Organ, built by Herman Schlicker was installed in the West Gallery.
