Mission

“The purpose of this Church is to come together as Christians to serve God by studying and listening to the Word and living by Christ’s teachings. We are committed to reaching out through prayer, caring, sharing and fellowship.”

— Church Mission Statement

Since 1723, the year after our town was first settled, the First Congregational Church of Shrewsbury has been at the heart of our community. We have hosted town meetings in our sanctuary, celebrations and vigils on our church green, and countless other events over our nearly 300-year history.

Today, the church continues to be a vital part of the life of the town. We gather together to worship, learn, serve, and care for one another. Our community is open and welcoming to all, and we invite you to experience a place where God is still speaking, a place of prayer where we can be refreshed by God, a place where mercy and justice are practiced, a place of great music, great youth programs, and great community, a place of joy.

So come join us! Check out our calendar to see what’s going on, sign up for an upcoming service opportunity, let us know how we can pray and care for you, or read about our worship services and what you can expect as a new visitor.

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We hope to see you soon!
