Preston City Congregational Church

Gathered 1698

Welcome to the Preston City Congregational Church's home on the web.  We're so glad you stopped by to visit us.

 

The present House of worship is the fourth building in the church's 315-year history, being built in 1886.  The church, formerly named The First Congregational Church is the town's first church.

 

If you are seeking a church home, we invite you to consider uniting with us in worship.  A pamphlet explaining the various programs and activities of the church may be found in the Information Center (mid-level) or by calling the church office.  Please speak with Rev. Stan if you have any questions.

 

WHO ARE WE? We are Congregationalists.  The Congregational Church began with the landing of the Pilgrims in 1620.   We are often referred to as "The Church of the Pilgrims."  WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?  We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of this church, and that each individual is free to follow Him according to his/her conscience.  Each church is self-governing in all matters; there is no hierarchy.  Each church, while autonomous, may choose to be part of a fellowship of churches.  We belong to the Fellowship of Northeast Congregational Christian Churches (ctfellowship.com) and The National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC.org).  Please visit these websites to learn more.
