No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.
The certainty of God's love. The promise of God's forgiveness. Under this umbrella of grace and hope our congregation gathers every week to worship and work. The welcome that God gives to each one of us is reflected in the warm fellowship, friendly smiles, and open hospitality of our congregation. Whether we are breaking bread together at the communion table or sharing a meal at a pot-luck supper, we are called to live out the invitation that Jesus first gave to us.
We come together to form the East Woodstock Congregational Church. We pledge to share the warmth and welcome of our loving God so that the Good News of Jesus Christ can be passed along, near and far. As a church we come together and answer the call to serve God's children through our ministries of worship, education, music, outreach, and fellowship. We endeavor to share the love that is first given to us. Come and join us! You will find a welcome here.

Silver Lake Conference Center is the home of the Outdoor Ministries of the Connecticut Conference of the United Church of Christ. Nestled in the picturesque foothills of the Berkshires of Litchfield County, Silver Lake has been welcoming church groups, youth groups, schools, non-profits and businesses, during the Fall, Winter and Spring, since 1957.
Each summer, Silver Lake continues the proud tradition of being the vibrant church camp for up to 1300 fourth graders through high school-age young people. These week-long "conferences" offer "once-in-a-lifetime experiences, over and over" to several generations of youth, helping to shape future leaders and spirited community-builders everywhere.
Silver Lake has become a sacred place to so many people, young and old. We invite you to come away from the busyness of everyday life and find out what is so special about this ministry of God's love.

As Christians, we will be judged, Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:31-46, by how well we care for the hungry, the thirsty, the poor and the imprisoned. In our society, the people who fit that description the best are the 7.3 million people currently under correctional control, 2.3 million of whom are in prison or jail, while the remaining 5 million are kept in a permanent poverty by the rules of parole and probation and the legal discrimination against them in housing, employment, and public assistance. There are clear connections between racism, politics, targeted enforcement of the War on Drugs and the intractable poverty that it creates. These issues have been out of sight for most of us yet as people concerned with human justice, we need to become aware of this injustice in our midst.
On Sunday, May 3rd, Rev. Marilyn B. Kendrix will preach during our morning worship service. Following worship, she will lead a discussion detailing the facts and consequences of mass incarceration in America.
