Welcome to the Barre Congregational Church United Church of Christ (BCCUCC) website. BCCUCC is a center for community where we live the statement of ministry printed each week in the worship bulletin --
"The mission of the Barre Congregational Church is to serve God, and to spread the word and love of God's risen son, Jesus Christ, to all people through Christian faith and unity. By our words and actions, we will bring love, hope, and acceptance to family and neighbors, respecting all differences and diversities."
We live according to our statement of ministry in order to bring hope, justice, and love to people wherever they are on their path to knowing The Lord, Jesus Christ, whose ministries of compassion, extravagant hospitality, and love inspire us.
A Message From Pastor Margaret
Dear members of the congregation,
Greetings again from our sunny South Africa, and
grace and peace to you all. We are all grateful to
God for another year that came to an end and a
new year that is given birth to. My prayer for you
is that God will bless all of you at the start of the
new year, and that you will feel God’s presence
throughout 2018 and beyond.
My thoughts are with you and your families. My thoughts are with you as congregation, and I hope that everything you do there will be to God’s glory, as we are doing here. I am keeping everyone in my prayers, those who feel well, and not so well. I pray that the Holy Spirit will overshadow you all, and that you will go from strength to strength.
Blessings to you from Jim, myself and my family. I look forward to seeing you soon.
A Note From the Deacons - Discretionary Fund
With winter coming, people are
in need of help to stay warm and
stay safe. We, as a caring church,
have helped many people in our
community. The money we use
is from our discretionary fund.
At this time, our fund is in need
of replenishing. There are
envelopes in the pews at church,
or you may send in your donation
to the church.
Please consider giving what you can for this important mission. Thank you for any help you can give.
From the Church Committee:
We want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It has been a honor to serve the church. We are looking forward to new members joining us for the coming year.
Please join us the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel for our monthly Church Committee meetings.
We would like to thank everyone for the generous donations of time and money that have helped us support this church. Just a reminder we have an obligation to pay the church back for the roof restoration. Please continue to support this effort in the coming year.
Fellowship Hall Floor Update
The Church Committee would like to remind all organizations and committees that may use Fellowship Hall that the floors are going to be cleaned and waxed on January 25th through the 27th, and Fellowship Hall will be inaccessible on these days.
The Church Committee would to thank the Supper Committee, Women’s Fellowship and two other anonymous donors for their contribution to have Fellowship Hall cleaned and waxed. It was in great need of care and the contributions are greatly appreciated.
