First Congregational Church was founded in 1960 and soon thereafter joined the United Church of Christ.  The Church was founded by fifty-one Christians who wanted to maintain their faith in Jesus Christ in the Congregational Way.  The Church first met in living rooms and VFW halls before finally purchasing the former Donald H. Shorey Funeral Home and offices on Park Street.  After a spirited remodeling effort, our church services were first held in our present sanctuary in the Fall of 1961.

Our church has traditionally been a training church for students at the Bangor Theological Seminary.  In our forty-year history, we have had six ordinations here, and have seen many pastors go on to serve Christ in many capacities.  Presently the Pastor serving our church is Reverend Alice Lester.  Over the years, we have increased the size of our church buildings and have increased the size of our church membership.  We are a medium-sized, still growing, church dedicated to the work of Jesus Christ as guided by the Holy Spirit. Our friendliness is shown not only in our warm church services but also in our coffee fellowships and suppers that we offer throughout the year.  Our church was nicknamed "The Church that Love Built" by its founders, and we treasure and maintain that tradition to this day.

First Baptist Church

First Baptist Church is the oldest church in the area, having been organized in 1823.  It was incorporated according to Baptist polity in 1855.  Following a fire that destroyed the original building, the current structure was built in 1892.  First Baptist and the Baptist Foreign Missionary Society collaborated in the founding of Maine Central Institute in the 1860's. 

The current congregation is comprised of people of all ages.  There are roughly 200-250 people in attendance for Sunday morning services. Numerous in-home studies and fellowship groups meet at different times during the week.  The Church is evangelical in demeanor, and Reformed in its emphasis.  There is a regular Sunday School program during the school year.  Services are of varying styles, incorporating both ancient and contemporary music.  Although the Church's identify is historically Baptist, members come from all different faith backgrounds. 

Pittsfield First Baptist Church is a caring community made up of many diverse people from many different backgrounds, all bound together with our desire to encourage, and uplift each other, and our communities and spread the good news!

St Agnes Parish

St Agnes Parish at 238 Detroit Street in Pittsfield was founded in 1909.
This Roman Catholic parish under the jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland is attended by people representing 34 towns in the area.

The Church’s architecture is uniquely nautical having been constructed according to those who know by shipwrights.  The wood carvings and details of the ceiling and the nave are a tribute to the faith of the builders and of those worshipping at St. Agnes today.

St Agnes is one of two parishes in Cluster 7.  The second parish is Our Lady of the Snows, headquartered in Dexter and comprises worship sites in Dexter (St. Anne 62 Free Street), Dover-Foxcroft (St. Thomas Aquinas 43 High Street), and in Milo (Sts. Francis Xavier and Paul the Apostle 128 Riverside St.)
