Important News

Starting June 6th:

  • The wearing of masks will be optional during worship services. If you have not been vaccinated, we would encourage (for your safety) you to continue wearing a mask. Parents will decide if their child(ren) will wear masks while in the Sanctuary or during Sunday School.
  • You will no longer need to call the church office to let us know you will be at worship, and temperatures will not be taken upon entering the building.
  • In addition to the double doors, you may also enter and exit through the front doors.
  • All pew cushions, hymnals, and Bibles will be returned to the Sanctuary.
  • Worship folders and the order of worship we once knew will return. You can pick them up by the upper-level elevator and front door entrance. Offering plates will be available at both locations; communion packets will be there as well on the first Sunday of the month.
  • Rev. Stan will be greeting worshipers (shaking hands) on the front lawn with those who feel comfortable doing so.

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.

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