Because of your Generosity

Since May 26th this year, we have led off our time of offering in worship with the statement Because of your generosity...A member of the congregation has generously volunteered to share something that was/is directly related to the ministry of First Congregational that has been transforming in some way to them personally or something they witnessed that was transformational to others. This time in worship was started by the Board of Stewardship, to help us appreciate the many ways we benefit from the generosity of each other. It may be related to a gift of time, money or sharing our talents, but it ALL helps to make the church stronger in ministry.

The Fall Brings a Breath of Fresh Air!!

Welcome to September and the beginning of the church's Fall programming. There are many new programs in place for the community to enhance our own spiritual lives, to focus on social justice issues, and a way to get to know our fellow members in a small group setting. These activities have been planned by different boards of the church or the Adult Ed committee. Please mark your calendars now for those activities that interest you and plan to attend. If you have an idea for another activity, please let a member of a board know, so we can make arrangements to offer even more programs for our community. These are all GREAT opportunities!
