Email Lists

Stay in the Loop!

Are you interested in staying better informed about events and happenings of the church? If so, we encourage you to sign up for one or more of our email lists.  You can browse the complete list of public email lists or choose one below:

  • Announce:  Announcements and discussions of events at First Congregational Church
  • Men’s Group: (coming soon!)
  • Prayer Shawls: Each shawl we create carries the love and blessing of its maker and also the prayers of the whole circle. This is truly an experience of giving that blesses the giver as much as the one who receives!
  • WISE:  A study group for all women who are interested in spiritual education.  We meet monthly in the Guiteras House.  All women are welcome.  Led by Helen Sousa, Director of Christian Education.
  • Young Families: A list for families with young children at FCC (coming soon!)

Many of our boards and committees have email lists for internal communication.  These are closed lists for committee & board members only.  Contact our church office for more information on these lists.
