Join us on Sunday morning as we welcome our friend Rev. Richard Nystrom to preach while Lisa is on vacation. The message, "Beyond Blame, Beyond Excuses" is based on the reading from John, chapter 9: Jesus' friends asked him who is to blame for the blind man's loss of sight. Maybe blame is not the answer... Come and find out! We will have special trumpet music to enhance our experience, and punch and goodies following the service.

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 rooted in welcome, a deep sense of community, and a passion for justice.
