Imagine Together: A Community of Belonging

During the season of Eastertide (April 1-May 18 this year), we focus on our Stewardship and how we collectively support the overall ministry of United Parish, as we “Imagine Together” how we make an impact in the world around us.

Did you know that every person in the photo to the left has struggled with mental illness?  This Sunday, we are giving special focus to spreading awareness around mental health and reducing the stigma of mental illness. Our Mental Health Ministry Team has collaborated on putting together a special worship service to help us move further towards God’s call to be a community of belonging for all. We also have the honor of welcoming guest preacher Rev. Dr. Ciaràn Osborne, who writes, teaches, and preaches regularly on the topics of metal health, mental illness, and faith, and is a writer for the United Church of Christ Mental Health Network.

I also want to encourage everyone to fill out the anonymous survey HERE that the Mental Health Ministry Team has created, to help us better understand how the United Parish community can more fully become a community of belonging.

Join us Sunday at 11am in the Sanctuary and on YouTube to pray, sing, learn, and belong together!

In faith,
