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:
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.
On Sunday, September 8th please join us for a special 11am Welcome Sunday worship service and picnic on our Great Lawn. Our regular 10am services will resume at Temple Israel on Sunday, September 15.
All are welcome here!
Our joyous welcome extends to everyone. When you cross our threshold, you will feel the embrace of our Saugatuck family — striving to be, in the words of our Vision Statement,
A Community of Christ
Welcoming All People
Learning to Love and Serve
God and Neighbor
A faith with outreach to all
Our sermons are engaging, our prayers are relevant and meaningful, and our beautiful music program helps us lift our hearts and minds to the Creator. If you have children, our wonderful Church School will help them learn about the Christian faith as they grow in the knowledge of what it means to be part of a loving faith community.
A focus on the community
We are proud of our long heritage as a "mission-oriented" church, reaching out to our local community as well as those in need throughout the world. Church members volunteer their time and talents for hands-on involvement, from providing meals at a food kitchen, to working in an outreach center, to mentoring youth or adults in transition. You can truly make a difference here.
Active Saugatuck involvement can be a life-changing experience!
We invite you to become an active partner in our community.
Saugatuck Church launches Capital Campaign: “Rebuild! Renew! Rejoice!”
Peter and the other apostles couldn’t contain themselves. See, there was so much hunger in the world, and they knew where to find food; so much thirst, and they had living water. Their very lives had been up-ended in the best possible way by this man Jesus who had introduced them to God, not God as some far-away concept in the sky, but God in the flesh, God somehow embodied in calloused palms, outstretched arms, flowing tears and pumping heart… Read more from Pastor Alison's April 7th sermon here…
On Sunday, March 24, 2013, our congregation approved the launch of a capital campaign to support the construction of our now-and-future Church… Learn more about the Capital Campaign here…
