About Us

About Us

Welcome to the First Congregational Church of North Attleboro, or as we like to call it, the “Oldtown Church.” We are a welcoming, family-oriented church with worship services every Sunday morning at 10am. Families and children are very important to us. In addition to Sunday School at 9am during the school year, children are welcome to attend and participate in worship.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

We belong to the United Church of Christ, and we welcome everyone, from every faith background. We believe that God is still speaking in our everyday lives today as much as in Biblical times. We believe that religion and science are not mutually exclusive, and we welcome both your head and your heart into worship. We are not perfect people, and we don’t have all the answers, but we welcome honest questions and enjoy where their discussion leads us.

Our church is at the center of the area called “Oldtown” because it was the first settlement of the Attleboros, receiving its charter in 1710. We like to remember that when our church was founded in 1712, we were all British citizens, so we’ve seen quite a lot here in Oldtown. Built in 1828, our current church meetinghouse is on the Historic Register and is a great example of a traditional New England church. If you grew up in town, you may remember us from your third-grade town history tours.

We are also a living, vibrant Christian church family, meeting for worship and church school every Sunday and serving the community we love joyously! Music is an important part of our worship, and you will hear everything from “Amazing Grace” and “The Old Rugged Cross” to Chris Tomlin and The Newsboys. Pastor Kelly does an excellent job of relating the scripture message to our everyday lives through children’s stories for the kids and enlightening sermon messages for all.

We look forward to welcoming you.
