You won't want to miss Sunday!  We're having brunch church AND Heifer Marketplace.  Oh, and it's St. Patrick's Day too!  We'll be meeting downstairs this week in Dining Hall.  Rev. Chad will be leading us in worship.  We'll begin with church, shift to our shared meal, and then return to worship. 

Then after the service everyone is invited to "shop" the Heifer Marketplace.  Gifts received will be sent to Heifer International to help people in this country and beyond become financially independent.  There will be a barnyard table, one for trees, another for bees, and lots more.
Upcoming Events
 March 24th, Third Sunday in Lent and Pledge Sunday. Rev. Chad will lead worship with healing stories, and the choir will provide special music. Church school meets.
 March 31st, Fourth Sunday in Lent. We will begin a mini worship series focused on some of the best-loved Broadway hits that have urgent spiritual messages for our time! This week? Les Miserables! The handbell ensemble will be playing, and church school will be in the sanctuary.
 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 hange, 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.
