About Our Church

Welcome to the First Congregational Church in Billerica, an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ! May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ bless you as you learn more about this dynamic congregation.

We are covenantal partners in the United Church of Christ, with roots in the New England Congregational Church (think Pilgrims and Puritans.) Our history is old but our thinking is not. We seek to be central to community life in Billerica, caring for members and neighbors alike, while reaching out beyond our boundaries into the world.

The ministries of the church seek to be an outreach of Christ’s hands and heart for an aching world. We encourage the spiritual growth of old and young, through worshipping as a community of the faithful; through learning in Sunday School, Bible studies, and many special programs; and through the experience of caring for the least of these.

Please enter into the life of this faith community as you are ready. The pastor, Rev. Dr. Katherine Adams, and the Deacons are available to talk with you about your faith journey. Please let us know how we can walk with you.
