Our sermon series, Faithful Resistance, concludes this week with "Forgiveness as Resistance; a.k.a. Well bless your heart!"  It may be that Rev. Chad's southern exposure to "pea pickin' hearts" has had lasting influence!  Our worship service will include special music by both the orchestra and the vocal choir, and a very special children's message about forgiveness.  Following the service all are invited to the Chapel for coffee and time to visit with one another.  We hope you'll be there!

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.
