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.

The “Giving Tree” will be back in the sanctuary Sunday, November 28 and Sunday, December 5, ready to begin the tradition of helping families in need this holiday season.

Our church receives a list from the Portland Food Bank and relies on the kindness of others to bring the holiday spirit to those families in Portland who are struggling. If you would like to participate, please take a tag from the tree and purchase the item indicated - each tag has a TAG number. There is also a sign-out sheet to fill out. Write the TAG number on the sheet along with your name and email address- in that way, we have a record of who is purchasing what item.

You can also sign up “on-line” by going here and finding the link to the “Giving Tree” and filling in the item you would like to purchase.

All items are due back at the church by Sunday, December 12 - they should be unwrapped with the tag attached to the gift.

Thank you for your support!
