We are a merged congregation since 1976 – Congregational Church (UCC) and Christian Church (DOC).  We are in a covenantal relationship with both denominations and our practices reflect that relationship.

We recently started a Children’s Sunday School following Sunday worship entitled G.I.F.T. (Growing in Faith Together).  In addition on the last Wednesday of each month we have an activity night for youth in our community (preschool thru age 12) entitled J.A.M. (Jesus and Me), which includes a light meal, crafts, music, lesson, and games.   

We have an active CCWF (Christian & Congregational Women’s Fellowship) that meets monthly, except the months of January, February and July, with an average attendance of 10.

Staff:  Part-time secretary and part-time custodian.  We are currently searching for an organist/pianist for Sunday worship services.
