On Sunday, February 9, our children and youth will be leading us in a worship service of their own creation, centered around Jesus' parables. Jesus’ parables teach us lessons through stories.

Non-Violent Resistance in the West Bank: Exploring Opportunities and Challenges

Thursday, January 30, 7:30-9pm at Temple Beth Zion (1566 Beacon Street, Brookline).

It's time to sign up for a favorite United Parish tradition, Dinners for 8! These dinners are a chance for us to gather and deepen our connections to one another in small groups of around 8 people.

Dinners for 8 are coming up and we are looking for some people who would be interested in hosting a meal at their home or at United Parish. Our Dinners for 8 events are a chance for us to gather and deepen our connections with one another in small groups of around 8 people.

Special thanks to all those who donated food and flowers, and volunteered their time to make this year’s Community Thanksgiving Dinner a success. We once again filled Willett Hall with over 220 guests, 100 volunteers, 50 pies, 20 turkeys and God’s love!

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.

On Sunday, December 8 after worship, the Hearts and Hands ministry team will be selling handmade origami ornaments. Proceeds will benefit the United Parish Emergency Fund. Contact
