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 the following donations to give to the different trunks:
Reading Food Pantry Canned goods

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 CommunityConcert 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.
