Art and Craft Fair Rescheduled for Sunday, August 5

     Due to predicted rain and wind, the Art and Craft Fair Committee has made the difficult decision to reschedule Saturday's Art and Craft Fair to Sunday, starting at 11 a.m.  Join us as we invite local artisans to display and sell their creations on the church grounds.  In addition, there will be a chinese auction, a raffle, and hot dogs.  Start your Christmas shopping early, and support the outreach of Orient Congregational Church at the same time.    

We Worship Outdoors This Summer

     Whenever the weather permits (which is most of the time), we will be holding our 9:30 a.m. Sunday worship outdoors this summer.  Join us as we worship in "God's Cathedral Under the Sky."  This week, we are pleased to welcome The Rev. Freeman Palmer, Associate Conference Minister, to our outdoor pulpit.  Join us!     

300th Anniversary  

     We celebrated our 300th Anniversary in 2017.  Follow this link to a terrific article in the Suthold Local.   http://southoldlocal.com/2017/05/17/orient-congregational-church-celebrates-300th-anniversary/
