Christmas Memory Tree at First Church

Welcome to The First Congregational Church of Coventry

We invite you to come worship with us!


The Reverend Stephen C. Washburn, Intentional Interim Senior Minister

Join us at our Sunday morning service at 9:55 A.M.

It has been our practice for many years to welcome every sincere believer to the table of Christ. If you seek the presence of Jesus Christ in your life, we warmly welcome you to celebrate the sacrament with us. Likewise, children below confirmation age are welcome to receive communion if their parents feel their understanding is sufficient to make the occasion important to them.

The Sunday School Program takes place in the Center for Christian Education from after the children’s message until 11:00 AM September through May. Children attending Sunday School classes will meet their parents immediately following the Children’s Sermon.

Services are followed by a coffee hour in the Social Hall. Please join us!
