Dear Friends,

Welcome to the United Church of Christ, First Congregational Church of Norwich, New York.  Our church was established in 1814.  We are a church in the Congregational tradition.  The easy way to understand who Congregationalists are: think Pilgrims and you’ll know who we are.  We (and most other Congregational churches in American) joined the United Church of Christ, a denomination established in 1957, by a vote of our Congregation (that’s the way we do things here: the congregation is in charge!) in 1957.  We are excited about our church and invite you to walk through our web-page.  Then come join our activities that stir your interest.

But my suggestion to anyone reading this web-page is to come visit one of our worship services.  Meeting our people, and praising God with us will give you a good sense of who we are: friendly, warm, committed to being open to all people.  May God bless you today.

Rev. Joe Connolly
