Music Ministries Wish Tree
Posted: Nov 22 2019 - 1:44pm

This year, a Wish Tree will be added to our Marion Street lobby decorations. This is a tree of wishes for the various choirs we have at United Parish. What better time of year than now to put forth wishes for our choirs! There are color coded ornaments on the tree – Red for the Children and Youth Choirs wishes, Gold for the Bell Choir wishes, and Purple for the Adult choir wishes. Descriptions of what is wished for are on the back of the ornaments. Please feel free to look them over, and take any ornament with the wish item you would like to donate. Donations can be dropped off at the Church Office or Choir Room. Thank you for your support – it is greatly appreciated! Contact the Church Office at office@upbrookline.org.

The Image of God in Song
Posted: Jul 25 2018 - 3:42pm

On Sunday, August 26, worship will be made up of songs submitted by YOU because they inspire you and bring you closer to God. These songs might be found in our hymn book, or in the hymn book you grew up with, or they might not be found in any hymn book at all! In past years, the list of heart songs submitted by our summer worshipers has included every musical style and genre, ranging from "In the Garden" to "Tell Me Why," to "I Write the Songs."

Please share YOUR favorite heart/spirit song - and say a few words about why you chose it, or what it means to you. We'll be using many of these songs in worship on Sunday, August 26! Submit your song to Minister of Music Susan DeSelms at susan@upbrookline.org by Monday, August 20 or drop one of the forms in the offering plate on any Sunday between now and then.
