Parking information: While on street parking is somewhat limited, you may use the parking lot on the corner of Amherst and Union Street (This is a courtesy of Devine Millimet Law Firm) or the Phaneuf Funeral Home parking lot on the corner of Hanover and Union. These spaces are only available for our use nights and weekends only. We are so grateful to our good neighbors for making these lots available to us. There are also a few handicap spaces on our driveway, which runs between Hanover and Amherst Streets. A handicap ramp is on our Amherst Street side entrance. We ask all able bodied people to leave the spaces on the driveway for those who need to park close to the building. Thank you!
Please know that you are always invited to a Special Worship Service at First Congregational Church!

Relax and Reflect in the Memory Garden
A vision only a year ago, our First Church's Memory Garden is blooming! Please stop by to relax and reflect on loved ones who have passed before us. It is located outside the Chapel entrance.
Many thanks for everyone's contributions and to the volunteers who had the vision to make this happen.
