Fellowship Hour Hosts


We host a Fellowship Hour following our 8:00 service on the first Sunday of each month, and following our 10:00 service on the second and fourth Sundays of each month. This is a wonderful opportunity to visit with other families and friends in the church. Please make an effort to introduce yourself to people you haven’t met.


You are invited to join our Wednesday Lunch Group each week at Noon on Wednesdays as we meet together in the Dennett Room for lunch, study, and great conversation. Bring your own lunch and a beverage, and we will read and discuss the Bible passages that will be used in worship on the coming Sunday morning. Please know that you don’t need to be a Bible expert to participate! Pastor Scott will provide some background information about the Bible passages and an assortment of thought-provoking questions. The conversation naturally moves on from there and the discussion is always interesting. There is usually lots of laughter and the sharing of individual opinions and perspectives. Consider making the Wednesday Lunch Group a part of your weekly schedule this fall!


Every Thursday morning at 8:00, a dedicated group of gentlemen from the church gather at The Beacon restaurant, which is located downtown on the first floor of The Harborview hotel. The Thursday Morning Men’s Breakfast Group is open to all the men of the church. Everyone places their own order and pays their own bill. It is a great way to spend an hour (or two) and begin your day. You are welcome to join the group at any time!


Our Property Team is an active church team comprised of a handful of folks from the church. The team keeps a close eye on our church and works to maintain all aspects of our church building and grounds. Bill Bond is their Team Representative on the Church Council. Bill invites anyone who is interested to join the team. They meet around noontime on the last Friday of each month. One of the team members, Claude Zimmerman, takes notes at each of their monthly meetings and drafts minutes. Click here to view their recent minutes.


The first Sunday morning of each month we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Communion is open to all who seek to follow in the way of Christ, both children and adults.


Our Sunday worship services continue to be recorded each week; if you would like to view the service as soon as it is uploaded, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel ("First Congregational Church of Port Washington"). This allows you to receive immediate notification.
