Welcome to the Roxbury Congregational Church, UCC website. We hope this site 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 message found in 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!

Purchase Cash Cards for Big Y, Stop & Shop or ShopRite
AND Support Your Church!
Do you shop at these stores? Have you ever purchased their gift cards? As a church, we can earn “cash back” from these stores. Stop & Shop will give us 5% of all gift cards we sell, while Big Y offers 2% - (6% for October and April!) This is how it works: as a non-profit organization, we can purchase the cards at a discount and sell them to you at face value. The difference is our profit. It may not seem like much but it will add up quickly if we make these purchases as a group. Example: A $100 purchase from Stop & Shop, will give the church $5. Many of us easily spend that much in a week. Just bring a check to the church office – payable to RCC - in the amount you wish to purchase (your cost is the face value of the card) and let us know which store you would like. There are also forms and envelopes on the Opportunity Table in Fellowship Hall and they can be placed in the offering plate on Sunday.
Since the church began participating in the “Cash Back” program offered by these stores, we have earned over $750. Please consider using this program to pay for your groceries whenever you shop. The percentage may not seem like much, but it will add up quickly if we make these purchases as a group. It’s a great way to support the church by doing what you do anyway.
