Welcome to the
Presbyterian - New England Congregational Church.
Worship Sundays 10:45 AM
We welcome all who want to thank God... as well as those who have doubt or do not believe. We welcome tiny infants, grandparents, single people, and families of all configurations.
We welcome those who have no church and those who need strength. We welcome first-time guests who have not been to church since childhood – as well as long-time members who have worshiped with us for decades.
We hope to welcome you one Sunday soon.
We believe that God’s love for humanity is all inclusive and by our common baptism we are brought into union with Christ without distinction.In accordance with this faith, membership in this church is open to all who profess Jesus according to their commitment to the Christian faith and their individual qualifications.We faithfully join in the fellowship of United Church of Christ “Open and Affirming” congregations and Presbyterian “More Light” churches.
Read our 1995 Covenant for Inclusiveness
e are a federated church of Presbyterians and New England Congregationalists. We are two historically related congregations and maintain a certain separateness in our legal identities: each congregation has its own membership book, its own mission contribution, and its own denominational ties. However, we worship together as a single church family. For practical purposes, there is no separation between the two congregations.
Our church family is diverse in age, marital status, sexual orientation, theological outlook and political perspective, but we are united in the belief that a church that attempts to experience the love of God within its community must also be a church that is socially conscious and politically involved. That sometimes leads to controversy and discomfort; but we believe that relevance to human life is more important than a “comfortable pew.”
Now meeting on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Anyone interested in enjoying a fun and focused evening is welcome to join us from 7pm to 8:30pm in the Nolan House, even if you don’t have a current project and or you just want to learn.
This is a fun night for all! We gather at the church and take the PNECC bus around town to visit some of our less mobile members. Then we sing….and sing….and sing…..It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to some of our friends who aren’t able to attend church as often in the winter.
We have two services on Christmas Eve — on at 4pm and a candlelight service at 7pm. We encourage families to share the experience together, and as such, there will be no child care. All are welcome and invited to share this worship service with us.
