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 in-person church-run events and programs, including Jeanette’s Closet, until further notice. Though we won’t be gathering in person, we are utilizing technology to stay connected to each other and our community, including offering worship services streaming online.
