INFORMATION ABOUT NEWTOWN CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
Newtown Congregational Church (NCC) is a Christ-centered Protestant community that has served as a spiritual center for the Newtown, Connecticut area for over 300 years. Our congregation thrives because we commit to welcome all into our membership. We understand that as part of our faith Christ expects us to "love our neighbor". We realize and embrace "our neighbor" as anyone we have the opportunity to come in contact with or can affect the life of.
NCC proclaims itself to be an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. We welcome persons of all sexual orientations, gender expressions, socioeconomic status, family configurations, personal history, ages, national origins, races, and physical or mental conditions.
We embrace people at any point in their faith journey and affirm each person's freedom to pursue God's unique calling. We celebrate God's inclusive welcome at our Communion Table and affirm that full and equal participation in the life and leadership of our church is open to all.
We confess that we continue to discover how to more fully love one another as Jesus loves each one of us. In an often hurting and broken world, we also commit ourselves to the ongoing journey of learning and growing as a community of grace and reconcilliation.
WHAT ARE THE MEMBERS OF NCC LIKE?
We understand the scriptures to be inspired by God. We know that God in Christ is calling the church and each of us to new ways of being and we are doing our best to figure out what exactly that means.
We are people who might have been brought up in the UCC tradition, in other faith traditions, or no faith tradition. We respect and honor all faith traditions and believe in interfaith partnership and dialogue. We like to exchange ideas and opinions. We believe everyone should be free to wrestle with theology. We take care of each other and do our best to love each other, even when we disagree.
NCC IS ACTIVE MOST DAYS . . . NOT JUST SUNDAYS
The office is open Tuesday through Friday from 9:00AM until 5:00PM and we love visitors! Please feel free to drop by. This is where you can obtain information about this NCC or other houses of worship and the Newtown area if you are new to town. You can also just stop by for a hot drink, a snack, or a chat with our friendly staff.
