Following the guidance of the CDC for how best to protect our communities against further spread of the novel Coronavirus, First Congregational Church has made the hard decision to cancel all indoor in-person church-run events and programs, including Jeanette’s Closet, until further notice. Though we won’t be gathering in person indoors, we are utilizing technology to stay connected to each other and our community, including offering worship services streaming online.

Virtual and In-Person Meet Ups

Our next outdoor vespers service will be led by our Young Adult group! It will be held on Saturday evening, May 22, at 6 pm. Please be sure to RSVP here!
