Our Online Worship services include prayers, scripture, sermon and a variety of music through our YouTube page. Anyone who is interested in Worshiping At-Home with us is encouraged to join! Our At-Home Worship services are created in a way that allows you the freedom to worship with us at your own pace and on your schedule. Emails with links and links through our website are available at 10 a.m. each Sunday. You can tune into worship at 10 a.m. on our YouTube page, or you can access our service at any time after the links are sent.
The new year started with a social distanced celebration at 81 High Street, home of First Church of Christ, Congregational, with the proud announcement of The Rev. Diann H. Bailey being hired as our Senior Minister! Rev. Diann is committed to the care of our congregation, the Suffield community, and the greater world. We are blessed to have her bring her many talents to First Church. Welcome and congratulations to Rev. Diann!
We are excited to announce that there is a new Blessing Box located outside of First Church. The Blessing Box is a resource for people in need to leave or take non-perishable food, hygiene products, and small seasonal clothing items. Our Blessing Box was built by our own Jacob Carroll of Suffield. We are excited to have this ongoing mission at First Church.
Here are the things happening at First Church in February:
Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. via Zoom, we have our weekly Bible Study led by Rev. Diann H Bailey. For more information on Bible Study, or to join our group, contact Senior@fcsuffield.org.
Our church office will be closed on Monday, February 15 in observance of Presidents’ Day.
As we kick off the Lenten season, our Ash Wednesday Service will be available February 17 at 12 p.m. on our YouTube channel. Often called the Day of Ashes, Ash Wednesday starts Lent by focusing the Christian’s heart on repentance and prayer
