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.


Growing Faith Opportunities

What’s Brewing?  This year we have begun two new and unusual opportunities to share reflections on life and faith, over a cold beer or a mug of coffee. Our "beer is our brew" events take place on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at Portland Pie on Haven St.  Java (or tea) brews occur on the fourth Monday mornings at Starbucks on Main St., Reading, at 10 a.m. Hope to see you for libation ‘n conversation! For further information, please contact Rev. Lisa.

Welcome to All!
