The Congregational Commons is a property adjacent to the office that the church purchased in 2016. Since then, we have worked to rehabilitate the space from a run down bank into a community asset, featuring a stage, green space, and a eventually, a 45′ labyrinth.

Here’s a list of upcoming and recent events:
