Worship At Westchester Congregational
Sunday Morning Worship
At WCC, we believe that worship is essential for Christian
nurture and growth. Sunday worship and Sunday school
is held at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday with both adults and
children gathering together in the sanctuary.
Our worship includes traditional music and hymns (favorite
Gospel hymns during the summer services), a children's
sermon, and biblical preaching that seeks to connect
God's eternal Word with the needs and concerns of present
day living. Following the children's sermon the children
are excused to go to their classrooms. Holy Communion
(Our Lord's Supper) is celebrated on the first Sunday
of the month.
In addition, Holy Communion is also celebrated on Maundy
Thursday; and one of the highlights of the year is our
Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Service.
Baptism is offered to people of all ages including infants.
Except for special requests and/or circumstances, all
baptisms are incorporated into a regular Sunday morning
