Where is the Love? Expressions of justice and faith Children and Youth Musical Presentation in Worship
Posted: May 3 2018 - 3:48pm

Come experience the connections between our secular and spiritual worlds in this unique offering by the children and youth of United Parish on Sunday, May 20 during worship at 11am. Through contemporary songs from a wide range of musical styles, stories from today’s news headlines, and modern images, our young people will share a heartfelt commentary about self-expression and the social justice issues they care about most.

There is something for everyone in this cabaret-style musical program that includes 60’s rock, rap, R&B, musical theater, reggae, country, folk, gospel, and big band jazz to explore themes of gun violence, gender identity, racial justice, animal rights and more.

Come be inspired by the power of love to change the world.

Singers Needed
Posted: Nov 17 2017 - 11:29am

Your (Tenor or Bass) Voice is Missing! The Chancel Choir has been growing, filling the church space and the heart space with their robust and prayerful sound. As our Soprano and Alto numbers have swelled this autumn, we are especially in need of Tenors and Basses (low voices) to come explore their place in the choir. We welcome singers of any experience level! If the spirit has been moving you towards joining your voice in song during service, please consider joining our vibrant musical community in this way. We need your voice! The Chancel Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7pm, and Sunday mornings at 10am. We welcome new singers throughout the year, in our Carolers choir (1st grade - 6th/7th grade) and in our Youth Choir (7th/8th grade-12th grade) as well! Please see Susan DeSelms (susan@upbrookline.org) or Liz Eschen (liz@upbrookline.org) or any of the choir members in robes after the service if you have any questions about what it is all about!
