In person Church worship services on Sunday mornings have been cancelled until further notice for your safety and good health. We pray for you and your loved ones very day! And hope that you find faith and good humor as we enter these unchartered waters.
Rev. Kevin will be sending his “In the Spirit” message to keep you updated on our status, and to inspire your personal worship. We have a new addition to our communication line up, “The FCC Friday Link” written by Barbara Papagian, our Commissioned Minister of Pastoral Care. The FCC Friday Link is emailed to the congregation via Constant Contact for your inspiration. To sign up with an updated email address, please send an email to Barbara Papagian.
Until we reunite, there are special Sunday Web Bulletins posted on the Sunday Bulletin page accessed here. **Please note the Sunday Bulletin for the upcoming Worship Service on Sundays will be posted by Thursday of each week with the exception of winter holiday weeks: (Thanksgiving and Christmas week). During holiday weeks the Bulletin will be posted online by Tuesday of that week.
For updates on what is happening with our members check the Sunday News here. Posting of a Sunday News is traditionally every week. Our monthly FCC Church Window will showcase what’s happened and what’s coming up for the next month. You can access a color copy of the Church Window here.
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!

Service of Prayer and Healing
Inspired by the Celtic Tradition, the roughly half-hour service will include music, readings, prayers and an opportunity to receive a “Laying on of Hands” blessing. Service will be held in the Chapel following the 10:00am worship service and fellowship, on the 2nd Sunday each month, once we are reunited.
Join Rev. Kevin and Peter Perich as the men of FCC make breakfast on the third Saturday of each month, and then enjoy a prayer discussion. We will post when the next date is!.
