We worship God in Christ Jesus faithfully, engage in Bible study and prayerful contemplation, serve joyfully, and seek justice passionately, with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

We are an Open and Affirming Church: We respect the worth and dignity of all persons who come into our church family regardless of their race, age, gender, nationality, marital standing, economic status, mental or physical challenges, or sexual orientation. We promise to support one another in our personal struggles, to understand and accept differences in one another, and pray to strengthen our love and acceptance.

Summer Reminders for Generous Souls:
Have a safe and exciting summer, but please don’t forget to keep your pledge payments and offerings current over the summer. We need to pay our bills throughout the year, even when everyone else takes a break.Your regular pledge payments and offerings will be greatly appreciated. Member Dues: This would be a good time to pay on the Member Dues pledge you made last fall; and if you did not pledge an amount for Member Dues which are sent annually to the CT Conference of the UCC, please send in an extra check.

Pies to Bake & Pies For Sale
What’s better in early summer than a Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie?
We have started the baking of our many varieties of fruit pies at our church kitchen and would love to have your help and donations. You can drop off rhubarb and berries any time and leave them in the refrigerator or freezer if ready to use. We would also have a job you could do to join in on the fellowship and really help out … even helping for 1 hour is greatly appreciated; you can wash dishes or fold boxes if you do not wish to bake. The fruit pies are all available while we are baking and in the freezers. Fruit Pies are $14.00 each. Orders can be made by phone: 860-535-0379.

Peter Marshall in 1941. It remembers the time when wearing clan tartans was outlawed. Today many churches, especially Presbyterian, will celebrate this on Tartan Day in April or St. Andrew's Day, Nov. 30th. In our Kirkin' service, we remember ancient times, as well as past and present kith and kin, while asking God's help and blessings in the future. We celebrate Scottish heritage and history clansmen demonstrated true brotherhood and the clan was the family. The tartan is a symbol of this love and togetherness.
