NEW TO CHURCH

Welcome to the

Church of Christ, Congregational!

WE WANT TO MAKE VISITING EASIER FOR YOU

Visiting a church for the first time can feel awkward and we want to make it as comfortable as possible.  Here are some things that might make visiting us in person easier.

 

We hope you'll take some time to browse around the website and, of course, we hope you'll choose to be our guest.  You are welcome here!

Time

We gather for our worship service (what in the Roman Catholic Church is called Mass) on Sunday mornings at 10am.   

Coffee

When the service is over, we invite everyone to gather in the social hall (we call it our Fellowship Hall) for coffee, juice and snacks.  It is our time for hanging out together and catching up with friends.  You are welcome to come in and grab a cup of coffee and meet some new people.

Dress

People dress in a variety of ways from jeans and t-shirts to suits and ties.  We want you to be comfortable.

All Welcome

All are welcome here!  We are an Open and Affirming congregation, which means we welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender expressions into the full life of our congregation.  Our Welcoming Statement is a testament to what and who we stand for.  Find out more here.

Worship

The service usually lasts about one hour.  It starts with community announcements and includes singing (don’t worry - we give you all the words!), Bible readings, prayers, and a sermon.  Sometimes we have special events going on like a baptism, new member reception, or confirmation.  It all depends on the day.

Community

There is almost always something going on at the Church of Christ in Millis.  Community groups use the space for scouting events, community choral rehearsals, AA meetings and a variety of other uses.  There are a number of small groups within the church that meet weekly or monthly as well.  We offer many ways to meet people and get involved.

Children

For children we offer a special children’s message and then the kids usually go into the classrooms to learn more about God in an age appropriate lesson.  Some children stay with their families in the sanctuary but most find it more fun to go to Sunday school.  More information about Sunday school can be found here.

Communion

On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate the sacrament of the Lord's Supper (Eucharist).  In our tradition, the deacons of the church usually bring the cups and bread to the people in the seats.  Everyone is invited to participate in the sacrament - members, guests, kids...everyone!   So you are free to partake, but you are also free to pass and just watch.

ABOUT US

All are welcome here.  We are an Open & Affirming Congregation.

There is a ramp from the parking lot and an elevator is available.   The sanctuary is fully accessible.

We are a member of the United Church of Christ.
