About The Photo
Each piece of fabric in this tapestry represents a church member and their place in the Body of Christ that is CCOL.
What is here for you?
A lot, we think. Come spend some time at our church – see for yourself!
You are always welcome here. If you come on a Sunday, please speak with one of the members of the Welcoming Committee – they are the folks with the red-and-black “Welcome” badges. Ask questions. Meet new friends. Enjoy refreshments in Fellowship Hall. If you come on a weekday, go to the Church office and speak with one of our helpful staff members.
More About Us
We are members of the United Church of Christ (UCC), a non-dogmatic Protestant denomination. We proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, work for unity and reconciliation, and try to find justice and liberation for all. As it is with all UCC churches, we’re an autonomous Church — that is, we make our own decisions.
Always closely invested in the people around us, this Church was founded in 1840 by thirty-two people who agreed “To bind ourselves in the service of Christ in the Community.” CCOL’s first settled pastor, Rev. James Bryant, went out from this Church after six years to do missionary work in Africa. In South Africa, he founded what is now the Imfume Congregational Church – our Sister Church. The Congregational Church of Littleton has a long tradition of outreach!
From its earliest days, the Congregational Church has always been oriented toward mission outreach and social justice – to serving God in the community, the Country and in the world. In the 1840s, women gathered at the Church to sew for the needy. Today, spiritual descendants of those women meet each Wednesday as the Ladies Sewing Group, sewing, knitting and crocheting for those in need. In the 1960s, the Church sent the “Christmas Carpenters” to Mississippi to help repair firebombed churches, vandalized in the Civil Rights strife of that time.
