Reading Cares Food Pantry Donations

“When did we see you hungry, or thirsty…?”  The Reading Food Pantry serves approximately 100 households.  The demand has not slowed but rather increased.  Your donations of both food and household items, along with financial support, are needed.  Please consider picking up at least one item for the Pantry each week when you shop for your household.  Donated items along with your checks may be left in the basket in the hallway outside the Music Room. 

Check out the Reading Food Pantry Facebook page for current needs.

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.
