First Congregational Church of East Bloomfield
Rich in heritage, bonded in love, growing in Christ.
The First Congregational Church of East Bloomfield seeks to be faithfully serving God through Christ by honoring His Word and by joyfully loving, caring for, and preparing all people for His service.
In our mission and ministry we want people to know through our actions that Jesus loves and cares for them. We respond to Jesus' command in Matthew 25: 34-40 to feed the hungry, visit the sick and comfort the lonely:
34 Then the king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” 37 Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” 40 And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
