Weekend at a Glance

First Congregational Church invites you to join us for worship each week on Sunday mornings or Saturdays at four o’clock pm. Worship at First Congregational Church is traditional, but open to all. It calls us to hear God’s Word, to reflect and to pray, to voice a response, and to go forth to serve.

If you miss a sermon or want to listen again to a past sermon you can listen to them again or view the bulletin in our extensive sermon archive.
