Welcome to the Roxbury Congregational Church, UCC website. We hope this site, while some parts are still under construction, will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. The Roxbury Congregational Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the wider community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. Be our guest!
