Our Wider Family

ucc_logo2The First Congregational Church of Darien is a member of  the United Church of Christ (UCC),  a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church organization to join faith and action.  With more than 5,100 churches and 1.1 million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.   UCC was formed in 1957 when the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian Churches united to create one larger community of faith. These two denominations, which were themselves the result of earlier unions, had their roots in Congregational, Christian, Evangelical, and Reformed denominations.  For more information about the United Church of Christ and its Connecticut Conference of the United Church of Christ –  Read more . . .
