  • Paul C.

    Sadly, I have left disappointed from many of the churches I have attended in my life. Too often people were just mouthing words they did not understand or believe and listening to sermons preached as if the Bible were a book of history. Imagine my joy in finding at Old Lyme — a church that is developing and working toward a theology appropriate to the 21st Century in all its complexities – a theology of word and action.

    Jesus’ injunction to ‘follow me’ has led many here to engage in programs of social change – opportunities for reconciliation with people from whom we have been separated.

    This requires more than a check sent, a meal together, or an evening dialogue. We are engaged with folks from Haiti, Green Grass, Palestine and other places in life together in which we give and receive, share joys and burdens and seek to overcome all that separates us.

    As everyone who knows this church knows, the sermons, the music, and the partnerships are something special. It is a place of intellectual stimulation, grace, and true compassion. We are fortunate to be able to expose Rosie (our daughter) to all of this and more at such a young age. In June, we joined the group traveling to South Dakota to visit our Lakota friends. It was an experience that gave us an opportunity to learn more about our partnership with Green Grass. It opened our eyes, minds, and hearts to new learning around the history and the current situation of Native Americans. It was a trip that ranks high for us as a family and was a great experience for Rosie, who was 20 months at the time.

    We are grateful to have this church and hope to watch our children grow here for years to come.

    It is easy to be overwhelmed by the many problems we face in our world today. One thing that keeps me moving forward is to see the incredible life giving power of generosity. Lives are turned around because we can provide people with a modest hand up. People gain new courage from a kind word or an attentive ear. Hope is renewed after a night of rest made possible by feeling safe enough to sleep. With the help of FCCOL and other generous donors we are being neighbors to each other. This is God’s will being done on earth. This is the work of building the beloved community. This is demonstrating the kingdom of God. Thank you all for being such a critical part of this effort.
  • Mary B.

    For over ten years, we have enjoyed sermons that consistently engage us intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Everyone who takes the pulpit is exceptional — including the lay people. For example, Mary Tomassetti’s mention of a “ministry of presence” made an indelible impression on us last week…We fell in love with the congregation at the very first coffee hour. That hour of fellowship — brimming with conversations and (great) coffee — is something we always look forward to.

    We are truly grateful to this church that has enriched our spirits, challenged our minds, and filled our hearts with grace.
