Fellowship Opportunities

Spend time greeting your fellow Church Members during Coffee time after Sunday Worship.
Morning Circle  (2nd Tuesdays at 10am)
Morning Circle has been a mainstay of First Congregational Church for many years with a a fellowship of about 25 members.  Our members bring a lunch, two co-hostesses provide beverages and dessert.

Our meetings always include a program which may be a speaker or a visit to a supportive agency.  Our programs are educational and supportive, focusing on our Church community.  We have enjoyed a tour at the Ronald McDonald House and have had a speaker present information on the Finger Lakes Museum.  During the year we contribute to an agreed upon charitable organization.  Our membership dues are $10. 


Evening Circle (2nd Monday at 7pm)
Evening Circle is made up of a group of women who meet September through June, for fellowship, fun, to learn new things and help others. Evening Circle is open to all women in the church. We have about 35 members and new members are always welcome.

From pot-luck meals, outside speakers,  book reviews and community works, the Evening Circle believes small things can make a big impact.  Notable speakers have included representatives from Ronald McDonald House, Day Star, Fairport Historical Preservation, and Kittleberger's Florist.  We donate to many different agencies, including constructing blankets for children, donating to different agencies; collect and send coupons to our military overseas; collect funds for book donations to Rochester inter-city schools, and at Christmas we collect funds or needed items to help a non-profit agency.

Friday Night Group (Various Fridays at 7pm)
Friday Night Group is a study, mission and fellowship group of both men and women (and often kids) that meets periodically throughout the year.  We study and discuss issues of faith, participate in mission opportunities and enjoy one another's company. We have provided support for a kindergarten class at Rochester Public School 33, and helped with various church mission projects such as raising money to drill a well in the Sudan, equipping a teen center at the Pines of Perinton, and completely refurbishing an apartment for those in need in partnership with Joy Community Church of Rochester.
