faith in action
Our community of faith sustains, nourishes and challenges us so that we can live lives of compassion, serving those close to home or across the world.
Through our service, we strive to enrich the lives of people we know and people we may never have the chance to meet.
Our rich history dates back to FCC's founding in 1784.
We are proud that our history includes the welcoming of the first black pastor in Vermont in 1818. FCC has a historic organ and exceptional music ministry.
The church is located in Manchester Village, nestled in the Green Mountains of southwestern Vermont. The Tall Spire of the church's beautiful white Victorian architecture is a welcoming beacon to all who venture into our community.
