No labyrinth walk at FCC tonight due to impending storm!

Dear Friends, As another storm appears to be heading our way and may cause difficulties, we will not have the labyrinth open tonight. Let us pray that those with power retain it, and those who are still without are able to be somewhere warm and dry.

 The labyrinth will be open again next Wednesday, November 14. Thank you.

Thanksgiving Turkey and Food Drive

Once again FCC will be the drop off site for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey to collect turkeys and other non-perishable Thanksgiving food donations. You may bring your donations anytime to our church on South Fullerton Montclair. The drive will take place in the FCC parking lot in the rear of the church. The date is Saturday 17 November from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Luke 3:11 ESV And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”

Guest speaker Amy Blumenshine at First Congregational Church

On Sunday 11 November Amy will help us remember Veterans' Day by sharing with us her remarkable work in helping returning veterans to heal and face the challenges of returning home from war. Please join us for this special worship, 10:30 a.m. Sunday. All are welcome!

The labyrinth continues!

At First Congregational Church Montclair, Wednesdays from 6 to 8 pm, our labyrinth is open for meditation and prayerful walking. No experience necessary. Come... take your soul out for a walk!
