No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. Our congregation is dedicated to being a welcoming, friendly, caring community where we live as disciples of Christ following his call into the world, and where, in community, we share the word, do the work, and praise God above all else. We are an Open and Affirming congregation where we believe that diversity is a strength.
Sunday worship is but one way that we gather to learn more about God. We study. We break bread together. We join in fellowship. We work in service. We care for one another. We learn spiritual practices and gather for other small group workshops. We learn not just from our reading, but also from our mission in the world.
If you would like to deepen your faith, find friends along the way, and lend a hand where it is needed, we hope that you will come and join us for worship or one of other many activities we offer.
Peace and Blessings,
The Congregation of the First Congregational Church of Brimfield
