From the Pastor

Easter Season 2019

Pastor’s Message

Brothers and Sisters,
Easter is approaching and we have several meaningful services and activities planned that will enrich your faith and fill your memories. Please join us as we worship our great and wonderful God and His faithful Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Our Ash Wednesday Service is planned for Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 7 PM. Please join us in worship as we begin the Lent Season and reflect on the ultimate sacrifice that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ endured for us!

For the Lent Season we are welcoming our community to join us in a Bible study of the 4 Gospels and a reflection and contrast of the Passion Week. We will supply the Bibles if you show up for discussion and Christian fellowship. These 6 sessions will be led by Pastor David Peterson. Please call him at 608-290-8809 if you have any questions. These sessions are planned for Wednesdays starting at 12 PM and going until 1 PM or so on these dates; March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17. There is no charge for these sessions so come on in and refresh your spirit this Lent Season!
Holy Week this year promises to be spectacular and fulfilling at First Congregational UCC Church!

Join us in a Good Friday Service on Friday, April 19, 2019 at 7 PM at Emerald Grove Church, 8127 Highway 14, east of Janesville. Our church family will be joining their church family for this UCC union in worshipping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This unique service will feature Passion Week scriptural readings, 4 mini-sermons, and music by the EGC Choir and a violin solo by Iselin Hegg.

Join us on Easter Sunday on April 21 for either the 8 AM or 10 AM Service, or both, for a memorable worship experience on the biggest day of the year for our Christian faith.
In between the Easter services we will be serving breakfast in our lower level. Please join us before or after worshipping for Christian fellowship and nourishment! Breakfast is served from 9 AM to 10 AM.

This Easter season promises to be memorable and spiritually enriching. Please join us as we worship our Risen King and Savior, Jesus Christ!

The Lord has really risen and has appeared to Simon.”
Luke 24:34

In Christ,
Pastor Dave
