Newtown Congregational Church (NCC) is a Christ-centered Protestant community that has served as a spiritual center for the Newtown, Connecticut area for 300 years. The church was established in 1714 as the first church in the town and was originally housed in what is now known as The Meeting House (on Main Street). In 1988, due to increased membership, a new sanctuary was buildt the present location on the hill behind the Meeting House.
Today our congregation continues to increase, be active, and thrive because Newtown Congregational Church whole-heartedly commits to giving each and every individual who enters the doors of this house of God an Extravagant Welcome and because we 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.
The Newtown Congregational Church proclaims itself to be an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. We welcome all persons of all sexual orientations, gender expressions, socioeconomic status, family configurations, personal history, ages, national origins, races, and physical or mental conditions. We embrace all 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 reconciliation.
WHAT ARE THE MEMBERS OF NCC LIKE?
We are people who might have been brought up in the UCC tradition, in other faith traditions, or no faith tradition.
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 respect and honor other 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 like to find ways to serve God beyond our walls.
We take care of each other and do our best to love each other, even when we disagree.
