Our Mission

Congregational Church of New Fairfield (Picture Taken:  May 30, 2004)Welcome to the online home of The Congregational Church of New Fairfield, Connecticut. We have been an active congregation since our church's founding in 1742. Since that time, we have sought to care for each other spiritually and commit ourselves to regular worship and prayer. We seek to grow in the knowledge and love of God by carefully attending to the scripture and by striving to hear and fulfill our mission to love and serve others.

The Congregational Church of New Fairfield Presents:

Seussical The Musical

Seusical The Musical is the twentieth consecutive all youth production presented by the Congregational Church of New Fairfield. Some of our past plays include Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (2005), Fiddler on the Roof (2006), Godspell (2009), The Wizard of Oz (2012), and The King and I (2013). Under the careful and insightful direction of Carl Anderson, our Minister of Music, each year's play comes alive.

Did you hear that? There's no telling "Who" it could be! Thus begins the journey of Horton the Elephant in the Broadway musical "Seussical The Musical"! The story follows Horton the Elephant who discovers the planet of Who sitting on a small speck of dust. Horton vows to protect Whoville and all its inhabitants including JoJo who gets in trouble for thinking "Thinks" that are bigger than he is! Horton is supported in his quest by Gertrude McFuzz who wishes Horton would notice her but never loses faith in her intrepid pachyderm. Joined by many beloved characters from the Dr Seuss books, this show takes us on a challenging journey filled with twists, turns and ultimate redemption reminding us of the power of friendship and never giving up on our dreams!
