Dear Friends,

It is my great privilege to welcome you to the Congregational Church of South Dennis.  I first arrived at the church in July 2010 as a stranger.  Since that time I have come to appreciate the church as a community of loving, caring, dedicated Christians.  Although the congregation is numerically small, the people engage in vital ministry and mission and look to the future with faith and hope.

As pastor of the church, I have had the privilege of welcoming visitors to our services, a number of whom said, “When I came here I felt like I was home.” 

That’s how I have come to feel as well.  Our church is a very special place, opening and welcoming to all.  As we and other congregations in our United Church of Christ like to say, No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. 

Ours is a church rich in history, beginning with the beautiful, serene Meetinghouse. The historic Snetzler organ which was built in 1762 by the King’s organ builder.

As an historic Congregational Church, we are part of the United Church of Christ and join with our denomination and sister churches in proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the head of the church.  The liberty of conscience for each believer is respected while each one is encouraged to grow in his or her walk with God.  We hold that “God is still speaking” and there is yet “more light” to come from God’s holy word.”

Founded by Sea Captains in 1817, our church will soon be celebrating its 200th anniversary.  Even though we honor our wonderful history, we know that who we are today and who we will become in the future is what we are finally all about.

Most important to us is that we are a vital and vibrant Christian community seeking to grow in our love for God and one another as we seek to serve the world around us.

If you are looking for a church home, or if you are just on the Cape for vacation, I hope you will visit us for our worship services at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday morning. 

May God bless you now and always.
