Next Show Up and Sing Sunday: Dec 3, 9:00 am
For all those who like to sing but need a guiding hand, please meet in the chapel at 9:00 am (come in through the Nursery School entrance), and you will learn a simple anthem and then sing
it with gusto at the 10 am service. With Dan Hague’s good instruction and the choir supporting you, you will lift your voice and spirit!
Bring the spirit of Christmas into your heart at the annual Candlelight Concert. The evening will feature performances by The Darien High School Tudor Singers under the direction of Chris Andrade, the church’s Senior Choir soloists, world-class pianist Max Pakhomov and a carol sing-along by the audience. Refreshments will follow the program.
Family Services: 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm
Service of Lessons and Carols: 10:00 pm, with a Prelude Concert starting at 9:30 pm. If you would like to sing with the choir at this service, please contact Dan Hague (email@example.com) and come to a couple of rehearsals on Thursday nights at 8 pm before the service.

A recent sample:
Music has long had a special place in our worship at First Congregational Church. As a congregation, we believe that its beauty reflects on the glory of God and that by lifting our voices to Him in song and instrument, we praise Him in a meaningful and powerful way. Over the past several years, under the leadership of our Music Director Dan Hague, our commitment to the church’s musical tradition has deepened further. During this time, we have broadened our use of music with several community-oriented concerts.
We have a senior and junior choir. Senior choir rehearses on Thursday evenings. Highlights
Hand Bell Choir
This group performs postludes twice a year.
Throughout the year our music program offers a number of special concerts, including a popular Christmas concert. Highlights
