Stay up to date with what's going on!


Book Study/Discussion
Thursday, Aug 27 @ 7:00 pm

Our next book study/discussion is on the book Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. This story shows the importance of friendship and human connections - no one has ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. One review says, “this is an uplifting story of an out-of-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit makes for an irresistible journey as she realizes... The only way to survive is to open your heart...” Come join in the conversation!


Peach Festival Food Drive

Labor Day Weekend

 

For over sixty years, First Congregational, UCC has participated in the Romeo Peach Festival. We offer parking for the events and have become famous for our sloppy joe/food tent. This year, as we have watched the needs in the community shift, we have decided to change our culture as a church. Instead of selling food, we will be collecting food.

 

We have partnered with Samaritan House and will be collecting non-perishable food items as a way to give back to our community. Parking at the church during Peach Festival is $5, however with a non-perishable food donation, parking is only $3. We will also have volunteers ready to assist in collecting donations throughout the day on September 2nd.

 

Please join us during Labor Day Weekend in using Peach Festival as an outlet for outreach.


Out-of-the-Darkness

Suicide Prevention Walk

 

On Saturday, September 14th, we are organizing a group from our church to walk in the “Out of the Darkness” Suicide Prevention Walk at Stony Creek Metro Park. The walk begins at 11:00 am and ends at 1:30 pm. This is a fantastic way for our church to show support in the community and raise awareness of suicide and its prevalence in our society.

 

We will walk together as a group, sporting our new church t-shirts!  If you are interested in walking with us, please sign-up with your name and t-shirt size.  If you are unable to walk, but would like to donate to someone in our group who is walking, opportunities will be available for sponsorship in the weeks leading up to the event.



Blessing of the Animals

Sunday, September 18 @ 10:00 am

 

Please join us, with your 4-legged family members, for an outdoor service celebrating the lives of animals!  If your pet cannot travel, is ill, or aggressive, please bring a picture and a prayer and blessing will be given.
