This Sunday at First Congregational Church!

This Sunday we find ourselves with Abraham, staring up into the starry sky, standing on the brink of a journey into the unknown, armed only with the promises of a God we can't see. And so we do as well, as we take our next step on our journey of Lent and begin to find the faith patterns that shape our paths. Rev. Ann Ralosky will explore explore these patterns in a sermon on Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18 entitled "Womb to Wilderness to Wonder."

We will also welcome with joy our newest members, Mary Kate Noonan and Kathy Rutherford! Please join us as we celebrate the growth of our church family.
