"Reaching Out to Grow God's Community"
We are a community of people who have come together to serve God the way that Jesus did- by working to make God’s vision of a peaceful, just and inclusive world a reality. We believe that God is still speaking in ways that are grounded in ancient Christian understandings but which are fresh expressions of the Divine presence in contemporary life.
Our mission as the First Congregational Church of Danbury, United Church of Christ, is to be a growing, multicultural, Open and Affirming community of believers and seekers, who participate in Christ's ministry of reconciliation (II Corinthians 5:16-21) by:
- Providing a loving invitation and welcome to the diverse population of the Greater Danbury area
- Nurturing people at various stages of their spiritual growth
- Offering inspirational worship, in the spirit of the Congregational tradition
- Engaging in outreach to heal and enrich lives.
