Regular Worship Service Information 

Sundays 9:45 am, prior to the 10:00 am service there is a 15 minute musical reflection and meditation time.

Sundays 10:00 am worship begins.

You are warmly invited to worship with us.  Here we hope you will find a place to connect to God’s way of love, peace and justice and with others who want to be part of a community of hope and action.   Join us any Sunday at 10:00 a.m.   All are welcome for worship.  Our Sunday School kids start each Sunday in the sanctuary with the whole congregation.  For those under 4 who find the service not their thing (or for parents who would like that hour to be fully present to worship)  Nancy Paradis our incredibly skilled Nursery Care provider will welcome your child in the nursery which is located in our Parish House – the large white building on the left side of the driveway.

All are welcome at the MSCC communion table. Come as you are, not because you must but because you may.If you are new to communion service or would like more information on the purpose you can contact our Pastor Joan MacPherson at


As we embrace a new calendar year, we also embark on the beginning of a new year in the life of Main Street Congregational Church. Our Annual meeting will take place February 2nd, 2014. The report will be available during the week prior to the meeting by clicking on the link below. More in depth information can be obtained by contacting the office. Thank you.
