Are You New Here? Frequently asked Questions

Church 2 treesWe’re so glad you’ve decided to visit us! You’ll find a list of commonly asked questions below. Please don’t hesitate to send us a message or give us a call at (978) 448-2091 if you have any questions or want to talk!

How do I get there?

Union Congregational Church is on Rt. 119, 218 Main Street, Groton. Across the street from Filho’s.

Where should I park?

Parking is available on Main Street, Hollis Street or Willowdale Road. We can also park at the dry cleaners on Main Street. For those who need a shorter walk we have designated parking on Willowdale Road right next to the entrance.

What should I wear?

Union Congregational Church has a “come as you are” atmosphere. You will see some dressed up; some dressed casual. We have no expectations for attire.

Where do my kids go?

We have a nursery downstairs in Fellowship Hall for children under 3. The nursery is supervised by a licensed care giver. The ushers or greeters would be happy to show you around. For 3 years old through 8th grade we have Sunday School located across Willowdale Street in the Parish House (218 Main Street). Your children will be guided across the street during the church service by the ushers and teachers. Each week there will be an opening activity or game, a scripture message, a craft and other activities, which are very well defined. Each week students will receive a color worksheet that has multiple activities that tie in with the overall lesson plan designed for their age level.

What is a Sunday service like?

Our Sunday services offer powerful live worship and Biblical teaching that is relevant to every day life.  Each service lasts about an hour. We feel it is vital for us to bring our whole selves (our joys and our struggles, our sufferings and our celebrations) to God; and then be lifted up to see, hear and receive assurances of God’s presence in Christ with us.

Be sure to say “Hello!”

When you visit, don’t forget to join us downstairs after worship in Fellowship Hall for coffee and a treat. We’d love to meet you and your family, and answer any questions you may have. We’re so glad you decided to visit Union Congregational Church!

Where is the Church Office and the Pastor’s Office?

These are located in the big Victorian house across Willowdale Rd. from the Church Building. It’s address (and our mailing address) is 220 Main Street. You can park in the little lot behind the house (accessed from Willowdale Rd.) and come in the back door. Or park along Main St. or Willowdale and enter through the Willowdale door.
