Worship is central to life at the First Congregational Church of Reading. Each week we gather as a faith community to share a common experience as we individually and collectively love and magnify God. We invite you to join us this Sunday for a worship service that can provide both a joyous and reflective setting for our busy lives.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday worship begins at the First Congregational Church at 10:00 a.m. As you enter our historic sanctuary, you’ll be greeted and welcomed into our worship of God. The weekly bulletin will guide you through the service which includes:

  • Greetings, announcements and opening worship music.

  • Childrens' message: A chance for children and youth to participate in worship in their own language.

  • Music: The service integrates varied and inspiring music; may include traditional and newer hymns; organ, piano, and instrumental music; as well as musical selections from our chancel, hand bell, children’s and youth choirs.

  • A sermon by one of our Pastors that applies scripture to our everyday lives.

  • Prayers and concerns of our congregation.
