This Sunday morning our seminarian Renee will be preaching. Her sermon is titled "Follow Me!" It will probably be a good idea to come and hear it, because one does not want to follow just anyone... The vocal choir will be providing special music, we will welcome new members, and the children will have the first of several sessions on their own "follow me" curriculum. As is our habit, we will have a time to visit over coffee after worship, as well as to welcome the newest members among us!

Wondering about who we are?

First Congregational Church of Reading, United Church of Christ has had a long and faithful presence in this community. As the world and our society change, the church is also changing.   Many people aren’t aware that there is a church like ours, which is both Christian and progressive – or even what some would call “socially liberal.”  We believe that all people are created and loved by God just as they are, so have declared our church “open and affirming”, meaning we “embrace people of all races, ethnicities and ages; mental, emotional and physical abilities; gender identities and sexual orientation; economic and social standings, and family and religious traditions.” And we back that up with our actions.  We are a church family rooted in welcome, a deep sense of community, and a passion for justice.
