Welcome!

Welcome to the First Congregational United Church of Christ website. We're happy that you have come to visit our site to learn more, and hope you will visit us in person (if you haven't already). Our church is a faithful community of believers, who seek to follow Christ, serving God in love and faith.

 

Our history in Norfolk is long. Our predecessors organized in 1870, joining the United Church of Christ in 1957. In 2020 we are celebrating our 150th anniversary. Over the years, we have been known as First Congregational Church and First Congregational United Church of Christ, but our fundamental beliefs have remained the same: Loving God and loving neighbor.

 

"No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey,

you are welcome at First Congregational United Church of Christ."

RALLY SUNDAY

150th Anniversary Celebration Worship Service

Sunday, September 13, 2020

10AM - Prelude with A Touch of Brass


Thanks Phyllis Ames for sending this souvenir from the church's 125th anniversary in 1995. Twenty-five years later, we will celebrate our 150th anniversary in worship September 13th.

Due to covid-19 we had to postpone our Saturday beef dinner on the 12th. We will celebrate and thank God for 150 years of ministry next Sunday. A Touch of Brass and Jill Waterbury will provide worship music throughout the service. The Brass will begin playing prelude music at 10AM, September 13th.


  

CONCERNING COVID-19

To align with our community and public health department recommendations for Covid-19,  we ask worshipers to maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more and to wear masks throughout worship. If you don't have a mask, we will happily gift one to you. There will be no Fellowship Hour for some time. If you are sick, at risk, or live with someone who is at risk, we encourage you to stay home. The situation remains fluid and we will evaluate as we more forward.

 

Follow this space, and our Facebook page for updates. https://www.facebook.com/First-Congregational-United-Church-of-Christ-660394054045693/

Stay healthy, stay hopeful.
