Sunday Worship Service:

Sep 15 - Jun 22: 11:00 am | Jun 29 - Aug 31: 10:00 am 

Are you listening? Are you out there?

Recently, on Sunday mornings, I will occasionally ask if any of you have read the weekly letter. Maybe 25% of the congregation raises their hands. So, I wonder, who is actually reading this weekly missive? Should we be spending time writing this or doing something else? If you are reading, I would welcome hearing what YOU think...


Liz Douglass Ordination

August 17th @ 3pm

On Sunday, August 17th at 3:00pm in the Sanctuary, we are celebrating one of our own being ordained into the Christian ministry! This is an important milestone in the life of any church.. . . . She has been serving as a Ministry Associate at Boston University’s Marsh Chapel, with a special outreach to LGBTQ students and is now being ordained to that position. We are proud and grateful to have been a part of the process.



Summer Worship

We have just two more Sundays in our summer worship schedule.  Join us August 24 and August 30 at 10:00 am as we gather for an intimate and informal time of worship.  Together we will sing, pray, and share communion.  Stay for lemonade and conversation following worship.  We look forward to meeting you!
