A Greeting from our Lead Minister
Welcome to First Congregational Church Guilford! Our congregation is a collection of thoughtful and eclectic folks, who joyfully welcome visitors with a loaf of homemade bread and embrace new members by sharing faith and community. We are perfectly flawed people who seek to practice justice and kindness in our church, town, and beyond. The United Church of Christ motto is, “No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!” We voice these words every Sunday because we want all to know that in this community of faith each person is both welcomed and wanted. Please see our calendar of worship times and events, and come as you are and as you can. We hope to see you soon.
Peace, Rev. Dr. Ginger Brasher-Cunningham
