Wherever you are on life's journey, you are welcome here
The United Church of Christ strives to be a place where every person is valued for the particular gifts and life story that is uniquely his or her own.
We are glad that you have found the website of the First Congregational Church in beautiful Holliston, Massachusetts.
We hope that your visit here will give you a taste of what we are about and that you will feel personally invited to come and worship with us on Sunday morning at 10:00 AM.
We are a congregation who actively seeks to incorporate the gospel message of love, compassion and hope into our daily lives. We are diverse in our thinking, yet bound by our desire to become more faithful disciples of Jesus and bring his message of inclusivity and joy to God’s creation. There are no creeds you must adhere to in order to feel at home here.
At FCC, we approach faith with an open heart and mind believing that God is, as the UCC motto proclaims, “still speaking,” in ways that make a very ancient faith vibrant and relevant for living in today’s world. We look forward to seeing you soon and greeting you in person!
Rev. Bonnie Steinroeder
Congratulations to Reverend Beth!
Beth was ordained in a beautiful service on Sunday at the Cedar Hills UCC church in Portland, Oregon. It was a glorious day, and the church was filled with Beth’s family, friends, colleagues and ministers from the Central Pacific Conference. Maura Marczewski represented our church and presented Beth with our gift of a purple stole, which she happily modeled along with other gifts she received. Many congrats and much love to Beth!
