Sunday Service - 10am
Our Sunday morning service begins at 10am, lasts about an hour and is followed by a social/coffee hour. Around the holidays, you'll often find special services at other times.
There's plentiful parking in the rear of the building on Long Hill Rd with a walkway leading back to the front of the church. You'll be welcomed by our Sunday morning greeters. We genuinely look forward to having you!
Who is the Pastor?
Rev. Ray Kostulias joined FCC as an interim pastor in 2012 and was warmly welcomed as our settled pastor in early 2014. Ray comes from a theater background and has an absolutely fantastic ability to capture the spirit of our Lord through thought-provoking, entertaining sermons.
What to Expect at a Sunday Service
We're a classic New England church but we're absolutely not a stuffy one. We strive to provide a great mix of worship through prayer, through song and through discussion. You may find guest speakers. You'll definitely hear our choir. Our organist plays on a pipe organ originally built in 1872 and you'll have an opportunity to hear a world-class grand piano.
What About My Kids?
Our weekly Sunday School runs concurrently with our Church Service. Following a brief children's sermon, in Church, our children leave the sanctuary for Sunday School classes from approximately 10:30 am to 11:00 am. Priscilla Bronke, Joan Soucy, and Cheryl Mayhew teach Sunday School , and are assisted by Ann Slater.
