First Congregational Church of Meriden held it is first outdoors regular service in modern history, complete with Communion, in a recently renovated alcove located behind the church on Sunday, July 2, 2017.  This area has been refurbished during two successive Eagle Scout projects carried out by members of Troop 10 whose home is the church. Located between the towering west wall of the church and an adjacent hill, it is shaded by a canopy of trees growing well above the spot. The full service was led by Pastor Bruce Miller and music provided by Music Director Barbara Mase using an electric keyboard. Click photo above for additional images.
