Over 300 years of Worship, Praise, and Support through Christ Jesus
In 2014, Newtown Congregational Church celebrated reaching the milestone 300th year anniversary from the date of its founding! Over all these years, NCC has sustained itself through the Grace of God, the faith of the congregation, and the support given by members, friends, and generous unknowns. From the receipt of pledges and financial gifts this church has been, and continues to be, able to provide Christian faith worship, education, and compassionate outreach. Every contribution received is a blessing!
To give your pledge, go to "Stewardship Pledges" that is located on the left side of the screen. Annual pledges are important. They show your trust in our Creator and your gratitude to him for your life. The pledges also are a big help to the financial leaders of NCC, because they make it possible to determine a budget for the year. The budget sounds "earthly" for a church, which parts of it are; but parts of it allow us as a collection of Godly people to combine our resources to provide even greater care to our fellow man than we could individually.
To give a financial gift: Financial gifts money given that has not been promised or pledged to NCC. Many times these are large sums to express the appreciation for the work of God's church and to support continued ministry.

And we are thankful for the blessings received to do His Will!
