First Congregational Church, UCC, Washington CT
We welcome anyone, no matter who they are and where they are on their life's journey. Together, we seek meaning in life's mystery, strength for its challenges, and grace for the journey. We take the Bible seriously, but not literally, as we seek God and endeavor to follow the teachings of Christ.
* Worship and serve God in the presence of a welcoming spiritual community that is open to differing beliefs.
* Develop a deeper, more rewarding, personal relationship with God.
* Receive support and encouragement during times when you need spiritual nourishment or direction.
* Serve others in our community and around the world who are in need of our resources, time, talents, and compassion.
Our roots go back to the Pilgrims and Puritans, and the birth of our country. Our founders believed in each person's direct relationship with God and in the authority of the local congregation to shape church decisions and activities. Today, we are part of a larger denominational community, the United Church of Christ (UCC), but we still believe in and practice the same principles.
