Church Services
Pastor: Rev. Cheryl P. Anderson

Join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10 AM as we seek meaning together in life's mystery, strength for its challenges, and grace for the journey.  In this busy world in which we live, our Meeting House is a wonderful place to start your week.  Here you can center yourself in spirit with music and prayer, and gain insight through the thoughtful and inspiring meditations on various themes presented by our Pastor, the Rev. Cheryl Anderson.

Sunday Morning Parking:  On-street parking around the Green, on Kirby Road, or in the library/museum parking lot across the street.

Dress Code:  Whatever makes you comfortable.  Most Sundays, you will see a variety of clothing from suits and dresses to business casual or shorts.

"Coffee Hour" - a time of fellowship and refreshment, follows the service in Wersebe Hall.

School-aged children start in the Meeting House with their families and then, after the pastor's "sermon" for children and youth, they leave for Sunday School in the Parish House.

Child Care available during the Service, 9:50 - 11:15 am:  Loving and responsible care by adults experienced in child care during the service for children up to 3 years old. Our nursery care rooms in the Parish House are filled with toys and activities to entertain or allow for naptime while parents enjoy the worship service.


Baptisms - In the United Church of Christ, people can be baptized either as children or adults.  Baptism with water and the Holy Spirit is the mark of their acceptance into the care of Christ’s church, the sign and seal of their participation in God’s forgiveness, and the beginning of their growth into full Christian faith and life.  Read more about baptisms at First Congregationla Church, UCC.


Weddings  - Congratulations on your decision to be married!  Our congregation wishes you the best and wants to help you get off to a good start in your new commitment.  Read more about weddings at First Congregational Church, UCC.


Funerals/Memorial Services - Special services to honor and bless the life of a deceased loved one can be performed in our Meeting House or graveside.  We provide guidance in planning the service and pastoral support as you navigate the process.
