Easter Sunrise Service



For the first time in a long while, we will be having an Easter Sunrise Service at 7:00 AM. This service will wrap up our “Gifts of the Dark Wood” series. Together, we will gather to greet the new light in the dark woods and celebrate the dawning of Resurrection Day. A light breakfast will be served after.

SpiritKidz Child and Parent Picnic



On Sunday, March 22nd following the worship service we will be hosting a picnic/playdate for our SpiritKidz Sunday School students and their parents. We’ll provide the food. This will be a great opportunity for the kids to play together and for parents to discuss how First Congregational United Church of Christ can best help them in the spiritual nurture of their children. We hope to see you there!

Opening the Bible


During the season of Lent this year, we will “open the Bible” and learn and experience ways that we are able to encounter scripture. We will learn some basic Biblical history and background, learn and practice ways scripture is engaged besides just studying it and talking about it, and ponder the ways the Bible impacts our individual and corporate lives. Curated and facilitated by Pastor Jason, this time together will include teaching, conversation, and practice. It is suitable for those who are very familiar with the Bible as well as for those who have never or rarely opened it. So invite your friends that are curious about the Bible and join us Wednesday evenings February 25th – March 25th at 7:00 in the church parlor.

Ash Wednesday

For those who wish, there will also be the offering of communion and the imposition of ashes. As we enter this season of spiritual attention, we will take the opportunity to be present to God and to one another.
