IMPORTANT NEWS

 

8/18/2021

 

Effective immediately, and until further notice, for the safety of all church-goers, we strongly recommend that everyone wear a mask inside the church as suggested by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (SECCOG). This is due to the rapid increase recently of COVID 19 in our area and applies to both those vaccinated and unvaccinated.

 

We will update as circumstances change.

 

Thank you for your consideration for all.

Do you need any help?

In trying times like these, often the best is brought out in people and so it is at Preston City Congregational Church. Some of our congregation have been in touch, offering to pick up groceries and deliver them, or perhaps, make a meal if needed for our shut-ins and/or elderly.

 

You may call Sandy at the church office from 9 AM - noon, Monday-Friday if you could use this help and we'll do our best to accommodate you. 

You're in the thoughts and prayers of your church at this time. 

We must remember "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands."  

Please Note

 

  • The Food Pantry is open the third Wednesday of each month, 10A - noon, beginning January 20, 2021.
 
 

As of January 4, 2021, the clothing shed in the lower parking lot is now open!

Please place donations in bags and tie them.

We accept clothing, shoes, blankets, curtains, towels, etc.

Thank you

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 322-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.

 

 

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 and The National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC.org).  Please visit these websites to learn more.
