Together we are the Church.  Come, grow in Christ with us!

Upcoming Services, Events & Opportunities to Serve

Out of care for one another during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are continuing to keep "social distancing." As of Sunday, September 13th, we have reopened our public (in-person) 9:30 A.M. Worship Service.  We ask that all people worshipping in-person would continue to follow the safety protocols which were mentioned in the Reopening Letter:  Reminder that everyone should have signed in on the Tracing Log.  We are required to maintain a list of everyone entering our church. Please wear your mask throughout the Worship Service and while you are inside the church.  At the conclusion of the Prayers of the People, please pray the Lord's Prayer in the silence of your hearts and minds.  At the end of the Service, please wait for the ushers to dismiss your pew row.  There will be no coffee hour or other indoor socializing, but please feel free to socialize outdoors as the weather permits.  Prayer requests must be emailed to Pastor Greg by 8:00 A.M. on Sunday morning.  Thank you for helping to make our in-person Worship Service a healthy and positive experience.

We will continue to provide a 9:30 A.M. live-streamed Worship Service on our church’s Facebook page. Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/First-Congregational-United-Church-of-Christ-Fairport-NY-174043249305098.  Also, an audio Worship Service will be recorded and downloaded to our church’s website (www.fairportucc.org) each Sunday by 11:15 A.M. All of our Church Boards, Committees, and Church Council will conduct meetings via Zoom or email.

Pastor Greg Rupright encourages anyone who has a pastoral concern or prayer request to contact him at any time: revgregrup.ucc@gmail.com; 585-966-9416 (cell); 585-223-0224 (church).

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22nd - check the Pastor's Blog Bible Study on our church's website: www.fairportucc.org. Just click Pastor's Blog. This week's Pastor's Blog Bible Study is on Matthew 22:34-46. Reply to the blog or email Pastor Greg any of your reflections on this passage.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25th at 9:30 AM PUBLIC WORSHIP SERVICE (www.fairportucc.org - click the sermons tab) - REFORMATION-RECONCILIATION SUNDAY.  The Sunday Message, "Christ-Shaped Love" will focus on Matthew 22:34-46.  Because Jesus is the give everything, receive everything crucified and risen Savior, we can love God, our neighbos and ourselves by the Spirit in the same way that God loves us.  Loving God with all we've got and loving our neighbors and ourselves turns out not to be common sense, generic advice but ends up being a whole new way of living when we find out what love is at the cross and empty tomb.  Heater Watras, our Director of Music Ministires, will share a solo, "Prayer of St. Francis" by Allen Pote.   COME JOIN US IN PERSON OR VIA OUR WEBSITE AUDIO SERVICE OR OUR FACEBOOK PAGE LIVE-STREAM WORSHIP SERVICE (https://www.facebook.com/First-Congregational-United-Church-of-Christ-Fairport-NY-174043249305098). ALL ARE WELCOME!

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR WHERE YOU ARE ON LIFE'S JOURNEY, YOU ARE WELCOME IN THIS UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST.  OUR GOD IS STILL SPEAKING! GOD LOVES YOU, AND SO DO WE!
