All Saints/Stewardship Sunday

"One of the things I love about the lives of the saints is that hardly any of them followed the rules.  They all departed from what the rules of their own time were, in their pursuit of the radical practice of the life of Jesus in their world." 

~ Diana Butler Bass

This Sunday we will have the unique opportunity to celebrate All Saints Sunday and Stewardship Sunday. Most of the time we honor the saints on one Sunday and take another Sunday to encourage people to be good stewards of the gifts they have been given. When the Board of Stewardship was planning the Stewardship campaign, it seemed natural to me to combine these two Sundays.

The Blessings of our Animals!

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.

Open and Affirming Sunday: Let's Celebrate!

The saying "timing is everything" is certainly true for First Congregational this Sunday. The second Day in October is the Sunday we celebrate being an Open and Affirming (ONA) congregation. This year we celebrate 22 years of being ONA. The decision twenty-two years ago was not done in haste, but following 3-4 years of study and education.

World Communion Sunday

World Communion Sunday is a celebration observed by several Christian denominations, taking place on the first Sunday of every October, that promotes Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation. The tradition originated in the Shadyside Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1933, and was adopted throughout the US Presbyterian Church in 1936, and subsequently spread to other denominations. In 1940, the Federal Council of Churches (now the National Council of Churches), led by Jesse Moren Bader, endorsed World Communion Sunday and began to promote it to Christian churches worldwide.
