Welcome to the First Congregational Church of Falmouth of the United Church of Christ. We are located on the historic Village Green in the beautiful seaside town of Falmouth, Massachusetts.

Our services are held at 10:00 AM on Sunday from September through June and at 9:00 AM in July and August, with the exception of Easter Sunday. On Easter, we celebrate the Resurrection with services at 9:00 and 11:00 AM. Childcare and an after-service coffee hour are offered year round.

We are a friendly and caring Church fellowship.
Pastor's Welcome by Rev. Jonathan Drury
Our life together at the First Congregational Church in Falmouth is animated by our belief in the presence of the Living God, whom we come to know through the rhythms of worship, prayer, and scripture and whom we emulate through generosity, kindness and hospitality.
Our church is a spiritual home to people from all walks and stations of life, believers and questioners from a range of backgrounds and faith perspectives. Our sermons are engaging, our prayers are relevant and meaningful, and our Christian education, youth and music programs help us lift our hearts and minds to the Creator. By offering opportunities to engage in service, outreach, education, and fellowship, we strive to be part of God’s work of mending the world. In all things we rely upon the healing, unconditional nature of God’s love and grace to be our help and guide.
We believe the church that Jesus builds is established on a foundation of love, so we seek to express our faith in practical acts of kindness and compassion in our community, especially to those in need. We define ourselves by our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and commit ourselves to sharing His love and truth with others… people like you. We want to be known by our love.
We hope you will find us to be a God centered, caring community of individuals who are excited about having the opportunity to share with you the same love, hope and joy we have received through our relationships with the Creator. We extend to you a cordial invitation to join us as we pursue new opportunities to draw near to God through prayer, joyful worship and inspiring, relevant messages focused on interpreting God’s Word and discovering God’s purpose for our lives. I hope you will be our guest at the First Congregational Church in Falmouth so you may come and experience our community firsthand. I look forward to meeting you when you visit. Until then, may God bless you with the assurance of the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life.

Renaissance in Concert
The Music Committee and Church Life Crew of the First Congregational Church are pleased to announce the sponsorship of the University of Maine’s premier all-female a cappella group, Renaissance, in concert tonight, Friday, May 22, 8:00 p.m. in the church sanctuary. Similar in style to UMaine’s “Steiners” – which recently performed in Falmouth -- the ladies sing original arrangements of songs first performed by a variety of artists, covering many genres. All music is arranged by Renaissance members or members of the University. Their mission is “to share our love of music and inspire as many people as we can. We hope that our music will touch your heart in some way or at least make you smile!” The concert is free – however a free-will offering will be accepted and divided between the Renaissance travel budget and the church’s music programs.
Our next meeting will be on Monday, May 18, 6:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Sign up on the clip board on the Opportunity Wall. Our program will feature the Choraliers, a female vocal ensemble, and the Tradewinds, a male quartet. Cost is $5 per person. For more information, call Bette and Peter West at 508-457-9860.
On Sunday, May 17th, we celebrated the close of another great year of our FCC Kids program with "Sunday Sundae." We hope you enjoy the summer break and we look forward to more adventures with you beginning in September!
A big THANK YOU to all parents and friends who continue to volunteer to teach on Sundays, chaperone our trips, help in the nursery, share pictures, bake goodies. Without your time and energy, this program wouldn't be the success that it is today!
