Sunday Worship Service:

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

As we forgive those...

Do you have anyone who works your last nerve? Maybe someone who has an incredible talent for working themselves under your skin? Or someone who has wronged you in a particularly harmful or maybe even just in a petty way? Perhaps an ex-lover, friend, sibling, co-worker or even a parent?

Then this Sunday is for you.


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.
