Let Us Worship Together

Rejoice, for God is among us. Give thanks, for in Christ we are a new people. Sing praise, for we come to worship God!

During the pandemic, we have turned mostly to online worship, which is premiered each Sunday at 10 AM on our YouTube channel but which can be watched later in the day or week. It has been an adjustment to not have over two hundred people gathering on a Sunday morning inside, but we have attempted to adapt as safely and faithfully as possible (see our Be the Church from Home page to learn more). In-person and other worship opportunities are highlihgted on our News & Events page

If you have any questions about any of our worship services, please give us a call at 203 877-4277.


Sunday Worship

We have two regular Sunday Worship services; a 45-minute Chapel Service at 8:00 AM in the Woodruff Chapel at 18 West Main Street, and a one-hour Sanctuary Service at 9:30 AM (10:00 AM during the school year) in the Meetinghouse at 34 West Main Street.

Both the Chapel and the Meetinhouse are handicapped accessible. Childcare and Sunday School are offered at the Sanctuary Service. [ more ]


Sacraments

First Church, part of the United Church of Christ, recognizes two sacraments: Baptism and Communion.  We believe that these were instituted by Jesus, according to Scripture. We share these outward and visible signs of God's grace during our public and shared worship experience.

We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Baptisms often take place on the second Sunday of each month.


Special Services

When we gather for special worship services, we invite the Holy Spirit to be present and reveal God's grace. Through Confirmations, Weddings and Services of Remembrance, we are made aware of how important the support of the congregation is discerning and affirming our faith, in nurturing our relationships, in comforting us in our loss, and helping us to celebrate God's gift of life.
