What's New and Events
2021 YULETIDE FAIR
Our Annual Holiday Fair -- "A Vintage Christmas" was a huge success and raised much needed funds for the First Congregational Church of Scarborough's many community and charitable causes. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the volunteers that put in countless hours in preparing for and supporting the fair, as well as, the many individuals and families in the community and beyond that patronized the fair purchasing some of the amazing craftwork, jewelry, small furniture items and delicious food products that were available.
We hope to have everyone back for next year's fair, once again tentatively scheduled for the first Saturday in December. In the meantime, please enjoy some 'holiday spirit' from the terrific photos below.
Long-Range Planning Committee Celebrated
A special celebration event was held at the December 12 sunday service to thank members of the Long-Range Planning Committee that recently presented a comprehensive conceptual plan to the church body for approval. This planning effort was a multi-year endeavor with a great many meetings and countless hours of effort by the eleven members of the committee, as well as, contributions from others in the FCC congregation. The hard-working team managed to completed the effort despite obstacles such as the global pandemic.
The conceptual plan was unanimously adopted at a recent special meeting of the church membership in early December, and this celebration event recognized all of the amazing work completed by the committee and helpers. Each member was presented a certificate, and a group version of the certificate will be matted, framed and mounted in the church. A special cake-of-gratitude was enjoyed at the weekly Neighboring gathering after the service. Five committee members were unavailable for the photo.
In-Church Service Recordings Available for Viewing
We are very pleased to offer video and audio recordings of the First Congregational Church worship services. These will be posted early in the week following the weekly Sunday workship servce. We plan on improvements in the future to the audio and video quality, but wanted to begin offering recordings as soon as possible to our church family and friends that aren't able to attend in-person services or just want to experience the service again.
