LENTEN DEVOTIONAL BOOKLET

 

A devotional booklet has been developed, prepared and produced by members of this Christian community. Each day of this Lenten season, beginning with Ash Wednesday and ending with Easter, you will be offered a devotional opportunity of scripture, remarks, and a prayer which hopefully will make your day more centered on God and your journey of Faith. Booklets are available at the church and online Here

Confirmation Mentoring Program Information & Orientation Sunday February 25 After Worship


“Who is Jesus?” “What is the Church?” “Is there a Hell?” “How many Creation stories are there?”
 “Am I ready to join the church?”

All non-member high school-aged students are eligible to participate in the Confirmation Mentoring program to discern their readiness to make a profession of faith and join the church. (Motivated Jr. High students are also encouraged to speak with their parents and Rev. Kelley about the Confirmation Mentoring program.) It is a time to spend asking questions, digging deeper into what faith, mission, and the church is all about. It is a time to spend with a trusted Mentor, getting to know other students and people in the church, to see if you are ready to make the commitment as a follower of Christ, and a member of the congregation. February 25 is a “no-obligation” opportunity to learn about this year’s schedule and expectations for the program. RSVP the Church Office (631.765.2597 or fpcsouthold@optonline.net)

SINCE 1640…A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CHURCH  This church was founded in 1640 as the “First Church of Christ in Southold” under the leadership of the Rev. John Younges (Youngs) from Southwold, England. The exact location of the first “meeting house” is not known, but it was probably a short distance west of the present church, on the site marked by the Founder’s Monument. The second church was erected in 1684 and stood on the north side of Main Street nearly opposite the first. The present edifice was erected in 1803, on land bought in 1697 from John Herbert. Originally the building measured 40 feet by 60 feet, and had a seating capacity of four hundred. The steeple was added in 1808 and in 1855 an iron triangle, still in possession of the church, was removed and a bell hung in the steeple. The town clock was placed in the steeple in 1884. Other additional improvements have been made since then, but with every effort to preserve and enhance the simplicity of the colonial style architecture.
