About Us

rainbow flag 2020Mission Statement

At First Congregational Church of Woodstock, we believe God calls us to worship and proclaim God’s living presence, grow in our awareness of God’s love, celebrate the fellowship of a loving, supportive community of friends, and challenge the church and its members to use their gifts in service with the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the guide. 

Open & Affirming Statement

We, the members of the First Congregational Church of Woodstock, seek to embody in our words and actions the unconditional grace and hospitality of God that we have experienced in the personality of Jesus Christ.  In him, we have been invited into the life of God, and welcomed into the community of faith.  Led by Jesus’ spirit and following his example, we invite all who seek to be his disciples into this church family, without regard to race, nationality, age, marital status, gender, mental, emotional or physical challenges, economic status, or sexual orientation.  We believe there are no outsiders in a community that is observant of God’s will.
