Christmas at First Congregational Church

You’re invited to join us in celebrating the Christmas Season! Here’s what’s going on:

  • December 18, 2022 – Pageant & Orchestra Sunday celebrating the 4th Sunday of Advent at 10 AM in the sanctuary and online on Zoom & Facebook
  • December 20, 2022 Winter Solstice Pressing Pause Meditation – In the busiest weeks of the year, come and “press pause” for 5 minutes or a whole hour. Each 3rd Tuesday of the month we open the sanctuary with quiet music, candlelight, and space to just sit and be in quiet from 6:30-7 PM. Following that time, a guided meditation is offered with a different theme each month from 7-7:30 PM
  • December 24, 2022 – Christmas Eve services (see below) in the sanctuary and online on Zoom & Facebook
  • December 25, 2022 – 10 AM Christmas Day service with carol sing, choir, children’s story, poetry. All are welcome to wear a tacky Christmas sweater or Christmas pajamas to church! Members of Old South UMC are invited to join us for worship this Sunday in the sanctuary and online on Zoom & Facebook
  • January 1, 2022 – We’re invited to celebrate a New Year’s Day service at Old South UMC (6 Salem St., Reading, MA) at 10 AM. No services at FCCR.
  • January 8, 2022 Epiphany Sunday Brunch Church – Brunch Church returns after its long pandemic hiatus! We celebrate worship together over brunch downstairs, joining together at a table instead of a pew. Bring a potluck brunch item or come and enjoy. We’ll celebrate the arrival of the Wise Ones who followed the star.
