Welcome to the United Church of Christ in Stoughton! Our new sign, created by church members Gale and Ed Porter, is a clear affirmation of what our church is all about: Love Lives Here! We believe that each person, without exception, is created by God and deeply loved by God, and we do our best to extend that same unconditional, heartfelt welcome to everyone. Please join us for worship on Sunday at 10:00 AM to see for yourself!

A Year of Dialogue and Discernment The second in our series of conversations in Project 275 will be held on Sunday, April 22. As we did in our first meeting, we will start in the sanctuary at the end of worship and we will then move to the church hall for coffee and a 30-40 minute facilitated discussion led by Laura Kittery and Lori Saville
The topic for discussion is,
“Do We Go? ”
We need your voice and would like everyone to participate. Child care will be available.
Hi all, Spring is here!
For April and May, CE has a few activities planned. We will be continuing our study of the Books of the Bible in Church School.
April 1 is Easter Sunday so there will be no Church School.
April 15 will also have no Church School, due to the start of April vacation.
May 6 will be the annual Feet For Food walk after service to raise money for the local food pantries.
May 6 and May 13 will be preparation for Children's Service which will be on May 20 this year.
Annual Reports for all boards, committees and ministry teams are due in the Church Office by May 1 to allow time for copies to be made in time for the Annual Program meeting.
Please email your reports to email@example.com and to Marcia Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Feet for Food
Support the children and youth of the First Congregational Church of Stoughton as we walk in our 14th Annual “Feet for Food” aimed at easing hunger right here in Stoughton. Our kids will be circling the Halloran Park walking track right after worship at 11 AM to see how many laps we can do in 30 minutes.
The children’s energy, enthusiasm (and feet!) and your pledges can help us reach our goal! You can donate one lump sum or pledge a certain amount per lap. All money raised will be donated to the Food Pantry Foundation of Stoughton which supports both food pantries in town as well as the Tuesday Morning Café, a shared ministry of our church and the United Methodist church. Don’t forget a non-perishable food item to donate as well.
Please make checks payable to the “First Congregational Church of Stoughton” with “Feet for Food/Stoughton Food Pantry” in the memo line and hand it in the day of the walk, or mail it to the
the First Congregational Church, 76 Pierce Street, Stoughton, MA 02072. If you have any questions please contact Marcia Olson at 781-344-9547, or firstname.lastname@example.org
