Orient Congregational Church is a caring community of faith for over 300 years and we welcome individuals from all walks of life. Whoever you are and wherever you are in life’s journey you are welcome here. We believe that children should be seen and heard, especially in church! We are a congregation devoted to our community, we love all and seek justice for all of God’s people. You are invited to join us this Sunday for a time of praise, fellowship and contemplation as we celebrate our Savior and explore the mysteries of faith.

There’s a place for you at OCC!

We’re Looking for a New Pastor!

Part-time Settled Pastor Opportunity

We are seeking a dedicated Part-Time Pastor. As we embrace the evolving dynamics of our community, once rooted in agriculture and fishing and now enriched by a diverse population including local families and second homeowners from New York City, we are committed to expanding our reach. Our church, following the teachings of Jesus, prides itself on being Open, Affirming, and a sanctuary of spiritual support for all in their life’s journey.

Are you passionate about fostering relationships, engaging with our vibrant community, and promoting social justice as taught in the gospels? This role is an extraordinary opportunity to contribute to a church that values tradition while actively adapting to contemporary societal changes.

If you are inspired to guide our congregation in deepening their relationship with God and to partner with local businesses and community groups, we welcome you to apply. Together, let’s continue our legacy of faith and community connection.

Social Justice at Orient

“All are welcome” is not enough!

Orient Congregational Church is a leader in standing for human dignity, fairness and compassion in our community, town, nation and the world.

We seek to practice our commitment in both small and broad ways that unite rather than divide, affirm rather than condemn and foster love rather than hate.

We participate in events that support social justice causes locally, statewide, nationally and internationally.

We continue to work toward transforming our community and the world into a more loving, compassionate and life-affirming place.

We work actively to involve youth in social justice activities.
