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.
