The First Congregational Church of Oregon City, located at 6th and John Adams Sts. in Oregon City, Oregon, was built in 1925. It includes Twentieth Century Gothic architecture. It has also been known as Atkinson Memorial Congregational Church. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]

It is historically important as a landmark in Oregon City and, according to its NRHP nomination, "as the fullest expression of an architectural type in which the architect, Willard F. Tobey, specialized and for its outstanding array of pictorial stained glass."[2]:7 The stained glass windows were designed by Portland's Povey Brothers Studio.[2][3]
