No Matter Who You Are or Where You Are on Life's Journey,

You Are Welcome Here!

 


Updates / Cancellations

1/25/2023:

The Connecticut Department of Public Health recommends that all residents of Litchfield and New Haven counties consider wearing masks in public indoor spaces. People who are at high risk for severe illness should consider additional measures to minimize their exposure to COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses.

We here at Church are requiring that all persons attending worship wear a mask at all times while in the Church building (unless you are the only one in the building at that time) 

We have also blocked off every other pew row in the Meetinghouse to spread us out.

 

If you feel sick - we love you and pray for you to feel better soon but,

please stay home and take advantage of our online virtual options for worship and meetings. 

 


 

         Welcome to the Roxbury Congregational Church, UCC's website.

We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. 

 

         Our church is a thriving community of believers and lovers of the message found in the word of God.  The Roxbury Congregational Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the wider community.  

          We hope you will join us for the worship service on Sundays to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. Be our guest!

Recalling Just Two Years Ago...

 

Christmas 2020


We were in the midst of the pandemic, a vaccination had not yet arrived,

and yet the Roxbury Church wanted to share the Christmas Spirit

in their unique, yet not perfect fashion.

We shared carols online with our members and the community.


We have come a long way from those darker days

but we share this video with you

and the same wish

for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Responding to the War in Ukraine


March 1, 2022: Ukrainian Emergency Appeal

On February 24, the Russian military attacked Ukraine. Hundreds of thousands of persons have already sought refuge outside of Ukraine. Others have remained in the country or are displaced from their homes. The humanitarian crisis is accelerating in Ukraine as well as in neighboring countries as the violence escalates and the number of people on the move multiples. Here is one way you can help. 100% of your generosity goes to help. No overhead is taken from your donations!

 Tax-deductable Checks, payable to RCC and marked Ukraine can be sent to the Church.
