Serving Within

Music

**During COVID the choir practices on Zoom and does not perform live on Sundays. Our church glorifies God through many forms of musical expression. The music you’ll hear here includes traditional hymns, choral music, jazz piano, pipe organ, flute, percussion instruments and acoustic guitar.  The choir, a diverse group of folks who like to sing, provides music for most Sunday services during the year.

Artistic-minded members are encouraged to express themselves through First Congregational’s Liturgical Art.

Council and Committees

Serving on committees and church council is a very important part of an active church.   

Most church activities are impossible without a structure supporting them.  Our council, which is a governing board, and the committees provide that structure.  If you're interested in serving on a committee, please let our pastor or moderator know.  

Other Opportunities to Serve

Our congregation has many ways to serve. Is something calling you? Listen inside yourself. Might it be helping with hospitality, praying for others, assisting with special projects, sending cards, etc? Whatever is calling you, we hope you'll trust the spirit and respond "Yes!"
