Sunday, July 16th. This Sunday while Rev. Lisa is on vacation we welcome parishioner Mike Fiorentino to lead us in worship.  With him we will reflect what seeds are being sown in our daily living - and who's doing the sowing.  Join us for punch and light refreshments following our worship service in the Chapel.

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.
