All of the worshippers at the First Congregational Church share a rich history. The original Congregational Church was built in 1710. Although it was once a vibrant congregation, in 1828 the membership decided to leave the historic faith and join the Unitarian Denomination, rejecting the deity of Christ. Ten men, who were faithful to the Bible, decided to leave and start a new church. On April 4, 1828, the new church was organized and met in various homes. In the 1840's, after years of struggle, the church came alive, obtained property, and built its present building in 1849.
In 1884, the entire sanctuary was raised and the present first floor was added. In 1895, our Woodbury Organ was completed. Today the church is a member of the Conservative Congregational Churches, and has a vision for sharing Christ with a hurting, needy world, through our worship, the sharing of our faith in Christ and through faith service to our community and the world at large.
