Spirituality

Feeding your spirit

  • “You can’t be Christian alone,” my college chaplain said. “The Church is the Body of Christ. To be a body, we need one another.” Although we sometimes catch ourselves thinking we can be spiritual and faithful on our own, when we pause a moment, we know that we need one another. In this time of pandemic, finding those connections has been challenging. Small groups offer an opportunity to connect with one another and to renew our faith, our hope, our joy.


  • Covenant Groups are a group of 5-8 people exploring faith with one another. This year’s theme, “The Art of Experiencing the Divine,” offers opportunities to explore awe, mystery, grace and more. Three groups will be formed now, with additional groups beginning after the first of the year.


  • Saturday, May 1 is World Labyrinth Day! Participate in a world-wide event to create a wave of peaceful energy.


  • Personnel Committee, with the approval of Church Council, is happy to announce the hire a short-term Congregational Chaplain to support ministry at First Congregational.

  • Starting at the end of April, we will be reading essays out of Walter Bruggerman’s book Tenacious Solidarity: Biblical Provocations on Race, Religion, Climate, and the Economy.
