First Congregational Church is open and active, but the church office and buildings remain closed to visitors for the time being.
Please note: Due to the cooler temperatures, we will be switching our indoor and outdoor worship times. As of Sunday September 27, the outdoor service will move to 11:00 am and the indoor service will be at 9:30 am.
You will find our weekly recorded services from our sanctuary here, on our Facebook page, and YouTube. Outdoor worship began on June 21. We gather with physical distancing on the lawn in front of the gazebo on the town green. Leaders of the church are meeting regularly to assess the status of opening the church for worship and other gatherings.
We miss our community. If you are in need of any pastoral assistance please reach out the pastors. You may reach Rev. Jim Matarazzo at 617-429-7846. We thank the community for your continued support and prayers. We encourage you to continue to give electronically whenever possible. You may also mail a check to the church (First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury, 19 Church Road, Shrewsbury, MA 01545) make an online contribution through the GIVE function on the website (www.fccsm.org) or set up automatic bill pay to the church through your banking institutions.
We wish everyone in our community grace, mercy and peace during this challenging time. Thank you for being part of this community of faith.
In Christ’s love,
Lynne and Jim
