Following Our Savior

Witness to his sacrifice
proclaiming him to the nations
the good news of his coming
and his rising in victory

Sharing his story
Emmanuel, Messiah
descended from heaven
so that we all would be free

Following our savior
the saints who came before us
continuing his ministry, our worship
to the ends of this earth

Seeds we are planting
sown to the winds
hoping for fruitful soils
living waters to make them grow

Prayers in the sending
jewels of God’s love
each act, each word, a treasure
testifying to God’s love

Mission Statement of First Congregational Church of Pembroke, UCC
“The mission of our church is to follow God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit,
spreading the legacy of faith and fellowship to all we meet in word and deed.”
