Welcome to the Roxbury Congregational Church, UCC 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 service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. Be our guest!

Focusing on Not What We Can't Do -
but What We Can Do!

During these pandemic days, it is easy to think about all that we can NOT do. We can wallow in what could have been. It is easy to do that, right? Well, I'd like you to consider instead what we CAN do! The church has not died, not gone into hiding, or diminished in this time of social distancing; in fact, NOW is the time for us to shine!

I want to offer a few ways that we CAN do something to share God's love:

1. The Santa Fund has begun. It is in a different format under the leadership of Diana deVries and Heidi Neff. This year we are collecting unwrapped gloves/mittens, hats, and socks. There is a basket in the Meetinghouse Entry Foyer. Also, we are collecting financial gifts for Christmas meals. Checks can be made out to RCC with Santa Fund in the memo. Deadline - December 6, 2020.

2. To help support our friends on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe American Indian Reservation in South Dakota, you are invited to purchase a book(s) for their Amazon Wishlist: 


OR Support the children living at the first home in the Simply Smiles Children’s Village on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation in South Dakota! These monthly expenses are vital for the home’s operations. When you become a sponsor, you will be creating an environment where children are safe, comfortable, and able to thrive. https://www.simplysmiles.org/sponsorships#Reservation

3. Take a short (1 minute) video on your smartphone, tablet of you and your family offering a Christmas Greeting to your fellow church members and send it to me at david@roxburychurch.org. I will weave them together along with some Christmas Carols that we are recording in a couple of Sundays and will be sending them to our shut-ins, and everyone else in the congregation for a special 2020 Christmas Treat! We would like to have them in by December 8.

4. Support granting a wish through the "A Million Thanks" program.  

In the past, we have sent cards to servicemembers overseas for the holidays. This year, the Mission Committee is suggesting that you support one specific injured veteran.  SFC Orlando Irizarry was injured and continues to undergo multiple spinal surgeries.  The one source of comfort he has been able to find is temperature-controlled hydrotherapy. The goal is to raise $2950 for hydrotherapy for him. You are encouraged to go to the link and make a donation. LINK
