The First Congregational Church of Watertown, Connecticut welcomes you! Our church has stood in the heart of Watertown since 1739. Today we are a community composed of families and individuals from many different faith backgrounds. We’re a church where a diverse range of beliefs and different levels of faith commitment are welcome and appreciated. We are united by our concern for one another, our commitment to God’s world, and our desire to deepen our spiritual lives through worship, learning and service in Christ’s name. Join us!
