At the First Congregational Church of Holliston, you are family the minute you walk through our door. Whether you have been a member for fifty years or five minutes, we value the unique talents, gifts, and insights that you bring to our community.
While times and customs may have changed over our 200+ years of existence, we continue to seek new ideas, new avenues, and new inspiration to celebrate the diversity of who we are and how we can faithfully live in service to each other, our community, and the world. Meet us, we would love to meet you.
If this is your first time visiting our website we hope that you will come to worship on Sunday morning and see what we are all about. If you have been attending church and would like to know more or how to get involved on a deeper level, we hope this page will give you some ideas.
We offer a range of spiritual, social, and service opportunities that are constantly expanding and are always open to new ideas. Remember that our pastor, Bonnie Steinroeder, is always available to answer any questions that you might have. You can contact Rev. Bonnie by phone at the office (508.429.8608) or by e-mail.
What to expect when you get here...
When you enter the church on a typical Sunday morning there will be lots of happy commotion surrounding you. A team of greeters will be just inside the doors to express a heartfelt welcome and where you can receive information about our church, our denomination and have any questions answered that you might have. Please be sure to take a name tag so that we may greet you by name. While you are climbing our winding stairway (or taking the elevator) to our historic sanctuary, coffee will be brewing down the hallway for our fellowship time which takes place each Sunday in Jordan Hall. Just stop anyone for directions to coffee hour, we will be glad to accompany you!
Our worship is grounded in the Congregational tradition and many of our prayers, hymns and practices can be traced back to our Pilgrim roots. We are, however, a modern people and are always introducing newer music and forms of praising God that reflect the ways we live and think today. At Holliston UCC, we come from many different backgrounds and traditions so it is not uncommon to see people dressed in suits or dresses, as well as jeans and casual slacks. Come as you are and dress as you feel comfortable. You are welcome here!
Our service begins at 10 AM and normally runs about an hour with singing, time for prayer, and a brief sermon. If you are bringing children, they will begin in the sanctuary with you and then, if they feel comfortable doing so, they will leave with the Sunday School after the “Children’s Moment,” which is about 15 minutes into the service. Children are always welcome to stay in worship.
If you have questions about our church or our denomination, our Minister, Bonnie, is eager to speak with you. Please approach her at coffee hour or call her at 508.429.8608 during the week.
