The First Church of Christ, Woodbridge – 8/26/22

The First Church of Christ welcomes you to our Worship Service every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. in the Meetinghouse

Interim Minister

The Rev. Susan Murtha has been the Interim Minister at FCCW for a few of months now and has made quite an impact.  Worship has been filled with God’s Holy Spirit in music and prayer, in God’s Word and sacrament.  Plan a visit to see what is “happening.”  You can also read about her on our website.  We are honored to have such an extraordinary individual here with us at First Church!

Pie ala Mode

We are excited to announce that FCCW, in collaboration with the Woodbridge Road Race and the Woodbridge Garden Club Plant Sale, will be holding its Pie ala Mode event again this year on Saturday, October 1, from 10 am – 1 pm.  Come and join us on the church green for seasonal delights, like fresh cider and warm apple pie ala mode ($2), and a free scoop of ice cream for all children.

Boy Scout Troop #907

Ben Rickel is Troop 907’s most recent Eagle Scout.  His Board of Review was held at Camp Sequassen this summer.  His Eagle project for Troop 907 and the Town of Woodbridge was the construction of a flag retirement repository.  Location is across from the outward-bound mailbox at the Woodbridge Town Hall, Woodbridge center.  This is where the old community bulletin board stood.  (See photo)

The troop held its year ending Court of Honor June 18 just after the Community Strawberry Festival.  It also had a great week at Camp Sequassen this summer.  The troop will continue to meet in the Parish House basement on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM starting September 8.  Stop by with the young man in your family (ages 11-17 years old) and meet our great scouts!  New members are always welcome.  For more information go to www.troop907.org.

Sanctuary Décor Restoration

The John Canning Company has completed the Phase One sanctuary restoration.  Please attend a Sunday service and see the restored ceiling, rosette, cornices, and the north wall.  The new décor is glorious.

Music at First Church

The music committee is pleased to announce that even though Nenad Ivovic’s time at Yale has come to an end, he very much wants to continue in his position with us as Director of Instrumental Music, which we are thrilled about.  He will be studying to get his Doctor of Music at the City University of New York.  Over this summer he has been performing many concerts throughout Europe and other adventurous places.
