FCC is a congregation of open-minded and big-hearted individuals who have discovered the freedom and joy a Christian spiritual life offers—parents, singles, teens, children, and seniors who strive daily to live out that life in their varied walks of life. As a member of the United Church of Christ, the community at FCC comes from an unusually broad mix of denominational backgrounds, including Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Baptist, Episcopal, Lutheran, Quaker, and even no faith background at all.

First Congregational Church of Westfield invites visitors and prospective members to “Bagels & Beliefs,” an opportunity to learn about the history and mission of FCC in an informal setting.  The informational session, with continental breakfast items to enjoy, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 20, following the 10 a.m. worship service.

Rev. Dr. Mark Boyea, senior minister, and other FCC members and staff will make a short presentation and answer any questions. Childcare will be available. To reserve our seat for this engaging event, please contact the church office at 908-233-2494 or
