Times of Service

Our regular Sunday services are every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM. We welcome visitors of all ages. NOTE: Our SUMMER morning worship begins at 9:30 AM starting Father's Day Sunday in June until the Sunday of Labor Day weekend in September.

Coffee Hour

Coffee hour is held in the Fellowship Hall the last Sunday of each month following the service - unless otherwise stated on our schedule. All are welcome. Are you interested in helping with coffee hour?

Communion

We celebrate Communion, or the Lord’s Supper as it is sometimes called, on the first Sunday of each month, Maundy Thursday, and World Wide Communion Sunday.

Communion is the most revered of the sacraments at our church. We invite all who profess Jesus as their Lord and Savoir to join us at the table. We believe that Jesus is present at our table and we accept His invitation with great humility and love. The table is for us a time of remembrance and thanksgiving for the sacrifice our Savoir made and continues to make for us.

Bible Study

Bible Study is held every Tuesday morning in the Parish House. Bible Study focuses on one book at a time, and discussions range from the details of the book itself to how the Bible teachings relate to today's world. We follow a relaxed format, sometimes including video to help with the discussions. The group gathers for coffee and donuts at 9:30 AM for about half an hour, then sits for discussion at 10:00 AM and is typically done by 11:00 AM. Please join us even if you can only make it once in awhile.         

Children

The 1st Congregational Church of Stontington welcomes children of all ages. If you want to participate in the service without your baby, please tell a Greeter and a caring volunteer will take your infant to our Sunday School. Otherwise, please make yourself comfortable in the bench with your child. Pastor Ron says that even a fussy baby's sounds are music in the church. Soon you will notice that parishioners all around you are waving, smiling, and cooing at your baby. If you become uncomfortable with a baby's fussiness, or need to change a diaper, or otherwise need some privacy, there is a cozy space in the Parish Hall for you. You can sit in the rocking chair there, with your infant, and watch the Sunday School children in their lesson, or sit in the parlor for more peace and quiet. A kitchen and a bathroom are nearby. We hope to have the service piped in on speakers by early spring, so that you will not miss the the service.
