Worship

SUNDAY MORNINGS:

Sunday worship is the heart of community life at First Congregational. There is age appropriate Sunday school for children meant to help pass on the Christian faith to the next generation. Worship services are a joyful time with a lot of music, sermons that are in step with the challenges we face in our everyday lives, and a sharing of our lives.  Get to know your neighbors at our friendly fellowship time after the service.  “You are only a visitor once” at First Congregational Church.

Church and Sunday school meet at 10 AM (Church only July and August at 9AM). We broadcast Sunday service on AM 1450 and AM 780. The church is handicap accessible.

BIBLE STUDY: 

At 9:30 AM each Wednesday morning a group gathers in our chapel (In the Haskell House, next to the church) for bible study.  We join together in a circle and informally discuss the various scripture passages and attempt to apply these thoughts to our everyday lives.  We also use this as a time for lifting up those in need of prayer. The format is conversational and relaxed.

HEALING PRAYER SUPPORT GROUP:

A number of years ago motivated by people in our “circle of friends” struggling with cancer we began a “Cancer Support group.”  As time went on we broadened our scope to offer support to all that are facing challenges, particularly of a health related nature.  We meet Thursday afternoons at 3 PM in the chapel (in the Haskell House next to the church). We call it Healing-Prayer-Support. For the most part the healing that has taken place has not been of a physical but of a spiritual and emotional variety.  The gift of sharing our stories, being heard and listening to others has rendered much peace.  Some have been members of this group since its inception.  Others come once or twice according to their own needs.  While there is a strong bond among the group it remains open to welcoming new friends at all times.
