According to our church bylaws, approved December 9, 2001, we have assented to the following statements of faith, both of which are testimonies to faith rather than creeds. The first paragraph is the Church Covenant of the Standish Congregational Church; the remainder is our denominational statement of faith, to which all churches in The United Church of Christ (UCC) subscribe.

We covenant with God, and with one another, to walk together as followers of Jesus Christ, trusting in the Holy Spirit to guide us as we devote ourselves to the study, the practice and the spread of Christianity. We endeavor to be loyal to this fellowship and to help and pray for one another in the Christian life. According to our abilities and opportunities, we give support for the work, attend the meetings of this church and share in the common worship of God. We pray for understanding of what God wants this church to be.

Welcome to
Standish Congregational Church!

The members of Standish Congregational Church welcome all persons, from all backgrounds, to join us in worship, spiritual growth, community service, and joyful fellowship! 
 
Located near the crossroads of Routes 25 and 35 in historic Standish village, the Standish Congregational Church also stands at the crossroads between the past and the future. Our worship history reaches back over 150 years, and we embrace the rich Congregationalist tradition of New England. The past met the future for us when in the spring of 2004 our original church building was destroyed by fire, and now our story continues in a state-of-the-art facility on the site of the original 1834 structure.
 
We invite you to come worship with us, whether young or old, families and singles, retirees and professionals. Affiliated with the United Church of Christ for our national denominational identity, our Sunday morning service is centered on fellowship, focused on community, and rooted in the Scriptures. To encourage those with young children, we offer a nursery during worship. School-age children enjoy a structured Sunday School while the adults are in church. Our music ministry enhances our services thanks to our gifted musical director, and a dedicated volunteer choir.
 
Finally, our involvement in the community doesn’t stop after Sunday worship. Our building houses the Standish Connection food pantry, and serves as a meeting place for Weight Watchers, Scout troops, and even a line dancing group! The congregation holds periodic pot luck suppers, and events such as the apple fritter booth at the Cornish Apple Festival in September, and the Village Square Fair in November, round out our annual calendar.
 
We sincerely hope you will join us as we add to the rich history of Standish Congregational Church.

On October 21, Ray and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary in Concord, MA, where we used to live, where we were married, and where I was ordained. As it was in October 2000, the weather was sunny and warm and the fall foliage was at peak. While we cannot return to Concord to celebrate every year, this lovely experience reminded me of the spiritual benefits of remembering and honoring events and people in the best ways we can. November affords multiple opportunities for such remembrance, including All Saints Day, All Souls Day, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving  MORE
