Our New Acting Associate Pastor

On July 2nd, we will welcome Amy Norton, as our new Acting Associate Pastor. Every person who met Amy in interviews remarked on her warmth and enthusiasm. She is a bright, curious and creative person who is a self-proclaimed "church dork" with a passion for engaging in spiritual study with ownership and responsibility.


Summer Worship Begins June 25

Join us Sunday @ 10am for summer worship when we will do things a little differently. Like most of New England, our worship attendance goes down and the building gets warmer. On June 25th, we will slip into summer mode and ease into a different rhythm. We will worship on Sundays at 10am, rather than 11am, and we will gather in Willet Hall on our lower level.


Boston is welcoming the bi-annual 2017 United Church of Christ Musicians Association (UCCMA) National Conference July 9-12. The planning committee has been working very hard to create a conference that will nurture, invigorate, and inspire.
