Sunday morning worship at the First Congregational Church of Stoughton begins at 10 a.m. and lasts approximately one hour. The service includes hymns; a prayer of confession, silent confession, and assurance of pardon; scripture lessons; sermon; passing of the peace; an opportunity to share joys and concerns and light votive candles; a pastoral prayer; choir anthem; and offering.
Children come for the first part of worship until "A Time for All" (the children's message), after which they go to their Sunday School classes.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month, and children are welcome to partake.
Our nursery is open from 9:45 to 11:15 am for little ones up to age 3.
Following worship, everyone is invited to our Coffee Fellowship time to share conversation over a cup of coffee.
In addition to Sunday worship, the First Congregational Church of Stoughton offers a variety of bible studies, adult discussion groups, and mission outreach opportunities. We have a vibrant ministry for middle and high school youth, as well as an active Sunday School program.
