Worship services are now in-person as well as Zoom. 


Moving forward we are using the same Zoom link for our Sunday worship services:

pass code 407268

You may login at 9:45am and our words of gathering will begin at 10:00am. We will keep everyone muted for the worship service but after the benediction we will unmute so we can take time to catch up with one another.

The first Sunday of the month is when we traditionally celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion together. We invite you to have elements available at home to use.


You are welcome to worship here! If it’s your first time here, your first time back, or you’ve been here all your life, welcome home to First Congregational Church!



We would love to hear from you!
