Weddings, Baptisms, and Other Special Ceremonies


Weddings are scheduled through the church office. Pre-marital counseling with the officiating minister helps the couple get to know each other more deeply and helps the wedding ceremony become more authentic and meaningful.  It is our joy to make God’s boundless love manifest by also celebrating  LGBTQ weddings in our sanctuary.

Baptism 1Baptisms

Baptisms take place during the regular Sunday service of worship. They are scheduled in consultation with our Pastor. If we are performing a baptism for your family for the first time, we arrange a meeting to review the meaning and origin of baptism and to walk through the ceremony so that parents know what to expect.  


First Congregational Church provides a sacred and comforting site where the life of a loved one can be celebrated and their passing can be mourned.  We are experienced in helping families design a service that reflects the life and legacy of the deceased, and work with longtime members as well as those who find themselves without a church home during the loss of their beloved.
