We will have a sacred stroll at Mt. Auburn Cemetery on Saturday, March 6 from 2-3:30pm.

Thrifty Threads is supporting four families who have shared some specific needs with organizations we have partnered with. We have passed along outfits for parents along with what we could to the children. It seems like there is also eagerness to receive books along with the clothing.

Join us on Friday, March 5 at 8pm on Zoom for this month’s virtual event! We’re hosting an evening of humor and connection as we share funny stories across the generations of United Parish. We'll have questions to prompt our humorous memories.

Children in our PreK/K church school class are invited to come play at the church’s Memorial Park on Saturday, March 6 from 10-10:30am. This is a chance to build community, socialize, and have some fun! Families will have to fill out a health-screening form, and everyone must wear a mask.

Each year, we decorate the Sanctuary with flowers 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.

Many people take on fasting as a spiritual practice during Lent. This means that they pick something special to give up or use less of, as a way of getting closer to God. Some people give up luxuries like chocolate or butter, or they may choose to keep a vegan diet for Lent.

Growing Grandparents will meet on Tuesday, February 16 at 10am via Zoom, sharing a "make-do" Mardi Gras morning - bright smiles and clothes, stories, and music. This small group is a place for active grandparents and other peers to share ideas and experiences during this special time of life.

Building off of the success of our Frozen Fridays series in January, the Gathering Team is happy to launch a new series of social events called First Fridays. Please join us at 8pm on the first Friday of every month for an evening of laughs and connection with our United Parish family.

The season of Lent is an ideal time to find new and creative ways to grow in faith and one’s relationship with God and others.
