  • Join us for the Jazz Blessing of the Animals

    Sunday, October 22, 2023, 10 AM, Town Common

    Rain Location: Chidley Hall

    Please join us on the Town Common where we will swing, celebrate and give thanks for all of God’s creatures, blessing our animal companions. We welcome all pets—furry, scaly, hairy, feathery and even plush! Photos of beloved pet companions are welcome in place of those who can’t be there. And a special seating section will be set aside for those who are more comfortable sitting away from the animals.

    To serenade both congregation and pets, FCCW’s own house band will offer jazz music before, during and after the service. We will sing and move and praise all of creation with fun and upbeat music, readings, prayers and blessings. From “Amazing Grace” to “All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir,” there will be an opportunity to sing, to listen and to share our cherished pet companions.
