This Sunday at First Church: Love God and Do As You Please

Sunday, October 23
10 a.m.

First Church of Christ
Congregational (UCC)
190 Court St.
Middletown, CT

With our Interim Minister, The Rev. Dr. Brenda Pelc-Faszcza

If you find your way to First Church Middletown on Sunday, you will walk into a magical place of spirit and peace. Light streams through tall stained-glass windows, with gothic arches' graceful frame. The spirit is here and we hope you will come visit and experience it for yourself. All are welcome.

Sermon: “Love God and Do As You Please.” Jesus comes from a religious tradition which has 613 laws; yet, when he is asked which of them is most important, he has no trouble knowing what comes first: “Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength, and your neighbor as yourself. Everything else follows from this.” We call this “The Great Commandment.” Rev. Brenda asks: What would it take for us to be this clear?
