Our Ministries

Sunday Morning Family Worship  
Each Sunday morning we come together as a family to Worship God through traditional hymns, prayer, praises, and a message from the Bible. After the service, all are invited to come next door to the fellowship hall for coffee and refreshments. On the first Sunday of every month we celebrate Holy Communion. We invite all those who know and love the Lord to celebrate with us.

Children’s Church  

During the Sunday worship service after a Children’s message, children ages 4-12 go to the Fellowship Hall with Kid’s Church teachers for Bible Lessons, Stories, Crafts, Games, Songs, and Fun. We are committed to teaching children about Jesus in a safe, fun and loving atmosphere.

Choir
Over the years, the population of the choir has ebbed and flowed. The best years are remembered when we had both junior AND senior choirs! Members meet to rehearse at 9:15 each week. When possible, the introit, choral amen, and anthem are sung in four part harmony. If you love to sing and the fellowship of folks making a joyful noise to the Lord…come up to the loft any Sunday and join us. All ages welcome.

Warren Church Community Childcare
The Warren Church Community Childcare was established in 2003 by the Warren Congregational Church. The WCCC is a licensed not-for- profit childcare center and preschool. We serve Warren and the surrounding communities. We care for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age in a loving, caring, and fun environment. Please feel free to contact Sarah B. Churyk, Director for more information at 860-868- 2236.

Casserole Sunday

Ministries

Every first Sunday of the month congregants meet after the service to prepare casseroles to be served at The Community Soup Kitchen of Torrington. The soup kitchen is located in the basement of Trinity Episcopal Church on Prospect Street in Torrington. All in attendance are invited to participate.

 Weekly Bible Studies
Each week Warren Congregational sponsors two adult Bible studies. People meet together regularly in order to grow in grace and wisdom, hear God’s word and put it into practice. Each Wednesday morning at 10:00 am there is a small group Bible study that meets at the Parsonage. On Wednesday evening there is a Bible study that meets downstairs in the Fellowship Hall at 7:00 pm. Please join us when you can.

Weekly Prayer Meeting
We have gathered to pray on Thursday evenings since 1991. Prayers, spoken and unspoken, are offered to God in an informal and peaceful evening setting. We share our praises, joys, and concerns for our world, our community, our families and friends. We meet at 7 PM every Thursday. All are welcome to attend this very special time in the sanctuary.

Winter Dinner Series
The Men’s Ministry sponsors a series of three dinners January through March each year with the proceeds benefiting the church maintenance fund. They feature delicious home-style cooking and are community favorites.

January – Ham Dinner
February – Pork Roast Dinner
March – Turkey Dinner
In April there is a Roast Beef Dinner sponsored by the Prudential board.

Annual Events

 Empty Bowl 
The Empty Bowl Dinner has been our most successful fundraiser for hunger since 1999. The idea came to us from a young member who had experienced this cooperative event at her college. Bringing local potters, school art departments, restaurants, bakeries, and a host of volunteers together, we consistently serve hundreds of bowls of gourmet soups, breads and desserts. Area businesses and artisans donate to a raffle as well. Area folks look forward to supporting this mission dinner the first Saturday in November annually.

Silver Tea
The Silver Tea is a fundraiser put on by the ladies of the Church, usually the third week of November, to start the holiday season on a festive note. You will find tea and coffee served from Silver sets, an assortment of sandwiches and goodies made by the ladies and friends of the Church. There are baked goods, hand crafts, and lots of treasures that are sure to please. There’s even a Kid’s Korner for all to enjoy.

Book of Remembrance
The Book of Remembrance was started in 1950 by Edith Brattlund to honor friends and loved ones, and the donations are used for the beautification of the interior of the Church. The Book is displayed once a year on Memorial Day at which time a special service is held and the names are read.
