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.
