We are vital to one another, and we are partners in the expanding work of God’s Spirit.
We are on this journey together, and we each have a role in this story.

Rev. Brent NewberryPastor

The Covid Task Force and the Coordinating Council have agreed to suspend the mandatory wearing of masks in and around the church buildings as of now. This is in line with the common practice in most public places at this time. In order to maintain the safety and security of all who come to FBC, we have designated some pews in the middle section on the lectern side of the aisle as “mask required” seats. These places are for those who would feel more comfortable being only with others who are masked. The seats will be designated with signage on Sunday and ushers will be on hand to assist you. We continue to live-stream all services as well.

The priority that informs our process is inspired by our inclusive beliefs. We profess that everybody is somebody to God and to us. This is why we chose to wait to reconvene in-person gatherings until everybody was safe to return together.

You are essential—to God and to us.

We are a community of believers who seek to grow in our faith and understanding as we live the Way of Jesus Christ.

We are a diverse community of people seeking to follow the Way of Jesus Christ. We are old, young and middle-aged; conservative, liberal and free spirits; gay, straight and uniquely ourselves; new immigrants and many-generation Worcesterites; dreamers, learners, artists, thinkers and do-ers.

We come together to share worship, lively conversations, stimulating projects, laughter, joys and tears. We argue and make up. We reach out to each other when we are in need.
