Ash Wednesday Service
Ash Wednesday invites us into the season of Lent – a time within the church year to acknowledge our mortality, our limits and our vulnerability so that we might be transformed and become the new life God calls us to be.
Suitable for all ages so families may attend following the pancake supper. Childcare will be available for the young ones.
More About First Congregational Church, UCC
First Congregational Church officially organized and built a meetinghouse on West Foster Street in 1849, building a new church 20 years later. Almost 100 years later, on Thanksgiving Eve 1967, disaster struck again when the church burned. Services continued to be held at several locations, including Memorial Hall, until a new building was built - the distinct octagonal church that stands on West Foster Street today.
Today, the church runs a church school, two youth groups, a dynamic music program and an outreach ministry.
