Sunday Service @ 10 am

"Where is Pastor Bruce?”  Wed. @ 2 pm

Music for the Spirit combines photography with music for prayer, relaxation and de-stressing. As someone once said: "when words fail, music speaks". Each video will be about 10 minutes of spiritual music and familiar hymns with photography coordinated to focus on the positive and uplifting and most importantly the grace and promises of God. A new video for each Friday with music and photography by Barbara Mase and videography by Marcus Hamilton.

It's that time again! Time for the 17th Annual Back-To-School Bookbag EXPO, presented by Meriden Firefighters Local 1148. Although it cannot take place on the Meriden Green this year, it will still provide necessary educational resources and supplies to Meriden’s neediest schoolchildren pre K- grade 8. Our church through your Christian Outreach Committee has strongly supported this program annually.

This year, through a COVID-19 grant from the Meriden Foundation and the United Way, our church has provided 1000 reusable water bottles for students to use at their desks. Please consider supporting the Backpack program again this year with a check payable to Meriden Firefighters Local 1148, sent to FCC, 62 Colony St., Meriden CT 06451 by Aug. 18th. The need this year is even greater due to the Pandemic!
