Who We are
As a Christian fellowship, we strive to apply Jesus’ teaching daily by using our gifts and talents, individually and collectively, in providing guidance, love, and hope to our community and the world in the Spirit of Christ. No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at First Congregational Church!
Some folks in our community grew up in the United Church of Christ tradition, but most come from a different tradition in the Christian family (Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, Episcopal, etc.) or no tradition at all. We are delighted how the Spirit has gathered us in this particular community of faith.
OUR HISTORIC CHURCH SEEKS INCLUSIVENESS AND VOTES TO WELCOME ALL! We are an Open and Affirming Church!
First Congregational Church of South Windsor wants the world to know that we have begun a new journey! First Congregational Church of South Windsor is now an Open and Affirming church community! On January 26, 2020, the historic congregation committed to what is surely one of the most important decisions made in our storied, 325+ year history. What exactly does this mean? This means that:
We seek to widen our expression of God’s Love by becoming a place of inclusiveness, diversity, and unconditional love that inspires all individuals in our community regardless of race, culture, age, ability, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
