I started attending the First Congregational Church of Falmouth, Mass., when my first daughter was a toddler. I was immediately drawn in by the bright, colorful nursery full of carefully chosen toys. I kept coming because of the warmth and kindness of the parishioners and the pastor. The church is a loving place for families to raise their children. The children’s program has been designed to hit the right balance between teaching values and having fun. They use cooking, games, and crafts to keep kids engaged. I recommend this church to any family. -Elsa, mom of two
The First Congregational Church has it all for my kids. Since they were very little, they've enjoyed coming to church, where they join the congregation at the start of the service for some music and an engaging children's message and then participate in fun lessons and activities through the FCC Kids program. Even after nearly 11 years at the church, the program seems fresh and exciting, and I don't think my kids have ever done the same project twice. Each week, they look forward to seeing their friends, and over punch and cookies after the service, they enjoy talking with adults at the church who are always interested in hearing about their latest adventures. -Tracy, mom of two
