Trunk-or-Treat – Oct. 31 at 2 PM

Join us on Sunday, October 31 at 2 PM in the Town Hall Parking Lot for an intergenerational Trunk-or-Treat event where kids can get something sweet, and adults and families can also give something sweet!

Each “trunk” will be decorated and offer candy to hand out. And each trunk will also represent a local charity that the church partners with. You’re invited to bring donations to give to the different trunks.

Charities and Donations TBA.

Arts & Community Space Survey

For many years First Congregational Church of Reading has been the home to several arts groups, including Creative Arts, the Reading Art Association, and the Reading Community Concert Band. Our building has the potential  to house many more. We consider it part of  our mission to support the arts, as well as  community non-profits and self-help groups.  

To that end, FCCR is surveying members of the community regarding their space needs for work, meetings, and events. The results of this survey will guide us in making improvements to the building to accommodate your needs.

Blessing of the Animals

All pets of all kinds and their owners are invited to receive a blessing on Sunday, Oct. 10 at 1 PM on the lawn on Sanborn Street.

If your pet doesn’t play well with others, or maybe isn’t very mobile, or perhaps you’ve lost a beloved pet recently — we invite you to bring a photo of your pet to receive a blessing.

This will be a brief event so we will hold it rain or shine! (If there is rain, we’ll set up a little canopy tent. If the rain is very heavy, we will plan to cancel)…
