Welcome!

         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:


Purchase nonperishable food items for the Daily Bread Food Pantry in Danbury. When you go shopping, bring an extra bag and fill it with items for the pantry. The bag can be dropped off at the church in the front entrance foyer (Narthex) on the cart. The need is great with financial times and layoffs. 
 

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

-  Summer Camp scholarships at our outdoor ministry site - Silver Lake will be needed more than ever this year! As with every summer at Silver Lake, we anticipate the significant need for summer camp scholarships in 2021. If you interested in financially supporting Silver Lake’s ministry, please support the scholarship fund! https://www.silverlakect.org/donate-now
