Welcome To Cliftondale Congregational Church of Saugus
Finding a church that really cares aobout you, a place where you and your family can grow spiritually, is extremely important. We think of Cliftondale Congregational Church as one big family. Our label is “Congregational”, which means we identify with the Pilgrims who sailed to Massachusetts to seek religious freedom. We are a Christian church that upholds the authority of the Bible, and the saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ, who died in our place, the Just for the unjust, to provide for us forgiveness and eternal life.
Cliftondale Congregational Church offers worship, instruction, fellowship, and ministry opportunities for Christian service. We’re a friendly church where Jesus is Lord and people are loved. Our Sunday worship consists of a dynamic Sunday School program for all ages, ranging from pre-school through Adult classes at 9:30am. After Sunday School, we hold our worship service with child care serves available, starting at 10:45. We observe “Open Communion.” To receive the Lord’s Supper we only ask that individuals know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
We would love for Cliftondale Congregational Church to become a place where you are able to connect with God and other fellow Christians. If you are new and have yet to visit any of our worship services or events, we welcome you anytime. We invite you to come and be a part of our church community so that we may get to know you better and assist you in your walk with Christ.
We are so glad that you have taken the time to learn more about us. Take time to browse through our website and feel free to contact us with any questions!

What sin is…choosing to do wrong
Who Jesus is…God’s Son, who loves us
We don’t ... Read More
