Pastor James and Thelma!

We have a new Senior Pastor!

Following the Service of Word and Sacrament on Sunday, September 23, a congregational meeting was held during which Rev. James T. Watson was formally called to serve as the Senior Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Ridgefield. James and his wife Thelma will join us in Ridgefield at the beginning of November.

Many church members and friends took advantage of the various Candidating Weekend events to meet and welcome James and Thelma. The weekend culminated with Rev. James leading the worship service and Communion on Sunday morning, followed by a congregational vote of attending church members.

Let's all be thankful that the search process, under the loving care of our dear Lord, has brought together Pastor James and FCC. There’s much to look forward to in the days, months and years ahead!
