We, The First Congregational Church of Portland, Connecticut, are an Open and Affirming church.  With God’s grace, we continue to be a congregation that includes persons of every race, ethnicity, age, family configuration, marital status, mental and physical ability,

economic status, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.  All are welcome to share in the life, sacraments, missions, responsibilities, and blessings of participation in our community of faith.

Currently we are not holding in person worship in the 

sanctuary. We invite you to join us for our virtual services that are added every Sunday to our You Tube channel.

Please join the Board of Deacons for "Three Words of Faith", a three week series of conversations on theses words. The conversations will be held Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. via Zoom video conference on the dates below. The links will be sent out in the Weekly Word.
