join us in worship
Every Sunday at 10:00 am we gather together for joyful, inclusive worship. From the youngest to the oldest, to people of all abilities, we are all children of God and we try to make everyone feel comfortable and spiritually nourished. While we follow a traditional worship format we don’t shy away from exciting and relevant practices during our sermons. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. All are welcome at God’s table.
A vibrant Sunday School program (Kids Kin-dom) and nursery are offered for families with children.
Our sanctuary is equipped with an assistive listening system so those who are hearing impaired won’t miss a thing.
Join us in song
The Chancel Choir is an integral part of the First Congregational Church faith community. Throughout the year, the choir explores diverse music, ranging from traditional to gospel, and more. All are welcome in this ensemble regardless of background or experience!
The choir rehearses Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm – 8 pm and participates in the 10:00 am Sunday morning worship service. First Congregation Church welcomed Ben Gaughran as the new Minister of Music in September 2021. Originally from the United Kingdom, Benjamin Gaughran brings with him a wealth and breadth of experience as a musician, music educator and conductor.
For more information on the Chancel Choir or any other musical needs, please contact Ben Gaughran at email@example.com.
