Missions and Outreach

Together as a church family, we work together to address many needs in our surrounding community and the broader world. We work with partner organizations to address issues of hunger, homelessness, domestic violence, education, counseling, and the need for support and fellowship.

Music and Music Education

The First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury has a long and proud tradition of music, both in our worship services and for other church and community events. Our Music Ministry offers a wide range of opportunities for participants of all ages. Sing in a choir, ring bells, or play an instrument for one of our musical groups. For further information, please visit the music page, contact the church office at (508) 845-7286, or email Curtis Smith, Director of Music.


There are a number of ways to get to know our welcoming community. First, each Sunday after the service there is a time for coffee/juice and conversation, which is a great way to meet others. In addition to this weekly Fellowship Hour, there are numerous other “fellowship” opportunities, including small group dinners, wine tasting, theater trips, pot luck meals, and golf group. Take a look at the Fellowship Opportunities page for more information or at our Calendar to see some upcoming events.
