First Congregational Church sits on a hillside at 7th Ave. N. and Bluff Blvd. The land was donated by Mr. and Mrs. C.A. Depue of Clinton. Roughly 12 acres are made up of wooded area. The remaining acres consist of the hill on which the church sets, retention pond areas, and a north side parking area. The hill provides a beautiful view overlooking Clinton. The view continues for miles, including farm land into the State of Illinois. Because of the geography of our church property we are affectionately known as "The Friendly Church on the Hill." The church where everyone goes sledding. The church on the bluff.
