First Presbyterian Church Of New Haven

Our worshiping and community life is coordinated around six seasons that run through the year.

Our current season

This is the Season of Advent.

In this season, as we await the greatest gift of God‘s child, we reflect on the ways in which giving, receiving, and sharing shape our daily Christian lives.

Where does the seasonal theme come from?

At its regular meeting Session reflects on the texts Pastor JC has chosen to examine in worship and allows a theme for the upcoming season to emerge from its discussions. On the communal committee night that follows, worship, mission, fellowship, and learning activities in the life of the congregation are organized around that theme.

How can I get involved with the seasonal theme?

Everyone is welcome to gather for our communal committee night. Perhaps you are a longstanding committee member, perhaps you are interested in trying out a new committee, perhaps you are not sure what committees are and what they do – just turn up for the group dinner, prayer, and reflection, from 5:30 pm. and then sit with any committee to help plan the season ahead.
