One of the advantages of this new online format is that you’ll be able to access the service whenever you get the chance–or more than once during the week if you feel like it! We know that this format is not at all the same as gathering in person in church.
Let the online worship service serve as a sign of our mutual commitment to do whatever we need to do to keep our beloved First Congregational Church alive and thriving during this unprecedented time!
