Welcome!

We are the Church of Christ Congregational in Goshen Connecticut and this is our website! We invite all people from all walks of life to join us in our faith journey together. For more information, check out our "About Us" Page.

For those able to get clear of their driveways, there will be a Lenten worship service today at 10 am.  The church lot is plowed.

Mardi Gras is a traditional way some communities prepare for Lent – using up all the fat and yeast in the household in preparation for a season of fasting and reflection!  Pancakes are just one way communities party!  Join us for a Mardi Gras celebration after church on Sunday, Feb 22!  Pancakes, fun, and activities for all ages!  Volunteers are needed! Sign up in the book to help.

Unfortunately, due to the weather forecast, the Men’s Group Breakfast has been canceled. We look forward to seeing you next time!

On March 1, 2015, your wishes, photos and memories will shower Winnie on the occasion of her milestone birthday. We will share them with her so she can enjoy them at her leisure, but would appreciate your contribution as close to February 1 as possible. Include pictures if possible. Please help us spread the word.  Contact the church office for information about where to send cards.
