WORSHIP

Weekly Sunday Services

Join us every Sunday for Worship

All Sunday worship services are at 10:00 unless otherwise specified. Because of COVID-19, we are currently holding services outside on the lawn, but considering moving into the sanctuary for “in-person” services as of October 25th and will observe protocols outlined by the CDC and Connecticut government so that we can offer worship services that are safe, sustainable, and fair for all. Those who may choose to stay at home may participate in a worship service using LocalLive streaming by clicking on the link on the home page, please. 

At the heart of First Presbyterian Church is our worshiping congregation affirming the inclusive love of God, which is made known through Jesus Christ. That love makes a difference in our lives and challenges us to make a difference in the world. We lift our voices in prayer and praise, and music moves and inspires us at a level deeper than mere words alone.

Special Church

NOTE:  DUE TO COVID 19, SPECIAL CHURCH IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED

Thursdays from 3:30 – 5:00PM 
Bliss House Common Room
Special Church is a program for adults and teenagers with Special Needs.  The group gathers for fellowship and spiritual.  We begin with fellowship time as we all gather and share news of our week’s activities.  We then work on a craft project which is often linked to the church calendar, and of course music is a very important part of Special Church.
