A Joyous Welcome to You from Saugatuck Congregational Church
Where’s Saugatuck Church? Alive and making a difference in Westport!
Our church is located — literally and figuratively — in the heart of Westport, at 245 Post Road East. However, since a serious fire in November 2011, we have been a “Church Without Walls.”
We are rebuilding… but we’re not waiting. In the meantime, you can find us out and about, worshiping and serving all around Westport. Join us anytime!
Here’s where to find us:
Our Sunday 10:00am services are held at Temple Israel, 14 Coleytown Road in Westport, unless otherwise noted here.
All are welcome! No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome at Saugatuck.
At our Ministry Center (offices)
1175 Post Road East in Westport (The Greens Farms Office Park next to Kowalsky Construction). Our Ministry Center is open Monday through Friday, 9:30 am to 3:30 pm and by appointment; call (203) 227‑1261.
A Community of Christ
Welcoming All People
Learning to Love and Serve
God and Neighbor
Active Saugatuck involvement can be a life-changing experience!
We invite you to become an active partner in our community.

High School Youth Group Mission Trip
On the last Sunday of November, we had a celebration of sorts when we officially announced to the congregation the location of next summer’s Youth Group Mission Trip: The Navajo Reservation in Northern New Mexico!!
We are partnering there with an organization known as Experience Mission (EM). This is a group that facilitates mission trips in over twenty locations both domestically and internationally. Of the many organizations out there that do similar things, what attracted me the most to this particular organization was their emphasis on relationships. EM very intentionally fosters local relationships so that the work we are going to be doing is the work that the local community wants us to do. In fact, they have built their entire ministry around a relational model of “sustainable change.”
Community Open House
Saugatuck Congregational has hosted a community Christmas Day Feast for more than 40 years. After our November 2011 fire, we were fortunate to be able to hold both the Thanksgiving and Christmas Feasts at Christ & Holy Trinity Church in 2011 and 2012, but for 2013 we were not able to find a suitable venue for the Christmas Feast.
Fortunately, Barbara Butler, Director of the Westport Department of Human Services, and Jeff Wieser, President and CEO of Homes with Hope, were able to work out a last-minute arrangement allowing us to have an open house at the Senior Center. Temple Israel joined Saugatuck as co-host…
