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.

Quarterly Meeting - November 23

Please plan to attend worship and stay Quarterly Meeting - November 23, 2014for the Quarterly Meeting on Sunday November 23, 2014. Items on the agenda include an update on capital campaign projects, current financial information, and the annual report. We need a quorum of 50, so we need you!

Longest Night Christmas Service - December 21

A Longest Night Service is so named because of its proximity to the winter solstice—the longest night of the year. Longest Night Service - December 21, 2014This service is designed as a time to take a step out of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. For one hour, let go of the lists and demands of the season and focus on the "real reason for the season." This worship offers a quiet time for everyone in the midst of the holiday festivities; it is a service of music, reflection, candlelight, and prayer for those seeking to find Christ at the center of their Christmas celebrations.

Christmas Eve Services - December 24

There will be two Christmas Eve services to celebrate Christ's Christmas Eve Services - December 24, 2014birth: One at 5:30 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. Both services are essentially the same, but there will be different special music in each. Come and celebrate the real reason for the season!

Looking for volunteers

The Hospitality Committee has a new sign-up sheet in Pilgrim Hall Fellowship next to the kitchen door looking for volunteers to host Fellowship Hour on Sunday morning. It typically takes three people to host, but it can be done with fewer. The directions explaining what is needed are right under the sign-up sheet. Please sign up!

Inclement weather policy

Though we rarely cancel worship services on Sunday, there are a few occasions when storms come on Saturday evening or Sunday morning that make driving treacherous making it prudent to cancel. Winter weather proceduresOur Inclement Weather Policy calls for the Chairperson of Worship and Ministry along with the Pastor to make a decision by 7:30 AM in order to allow time for choir members, church school teachers, and others to be notified. If there is a question about a cancellation, listen to WLAD or tune into WTNH 8 or WFSB 3.

Welcome! Please join Worship Scheduleus for worship every Sunday at 10:00 AM . Communion is held on the first Sunday of each month. Come and begin your week in worship!
