Join us after worship on Sunday, November 15 at 12pm for our fall all-parish meeting on Zoom. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The goals for this meeting are to:
• Deepen connections with each other
• Discuss church priorities
• Share financial update
During the season of celebrating Jesus, whose life modeled simplicity and sharing, let’s show extra care for God’s Creation. Sustainability takes just a bit of extra imagination and planning. You can give more while spending less, and have fun bringing those you love along for the ride.
This year, our Brookline Interfaith Clergy have offered a 17+minute reflection on “Gratitude as an Act of Resilience and Resistance,” as an alternative to their annual Thanksgiving worship.
Members of the Exalting, Gathering, and Hearts and Hands teams have put together Advent care packages for our congregation.
We invite you to join us in Advent fellowship on Sunday, November 29 at 9:45am as the Church School families make wreaths at the virtual Wreath Making Party. Church School families can pick up materials for the wreath on Saturday, November 28 from 10am-2pm at the church.
Join us for a contemplative worship service on Tuesdays, December 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 8:30-9:00pm on Zoom. We invite you to observe Advent during the bustle of the holiday season by stepping into the quiet and lighting candles together on Tuesdays for some centering time of prayer and song.
Each year, we decorate the Sanctuary on the Sunday before Christmas Eve with poinsettias donated by individuals and families honoring or in remembrance of a family member or friend. Even though we cannot gather in person this year, we are continuing this beloved tradition.
The fourth annual Christmas Market will take place from Sunday, November 29 to Thursday, December 24. Make a gift and/or tell your friends and family that you’ve made gifts in their honor to organizations doing good in the world. Perfect for gifts or stocking stuffers.
