Wouldn't it be great if there were a church...
...that truly welcomes all people regardless of religious background, age, race or sexual orientation?
...that is grounded in a long and amazing history yet embraces current forms of inspiration and the cultivation of soul?
...that refuses to concede the Bible to mean-spirited and literal-minded interpretations and instead holds up the clarion calls for compassion and justice we hear in the scriptures?
...that encourages people to bring their whole selves to a service on Sundays and not simply check their brains at the door?
...with a long history of working for social change that actually speaks to the major issues of the day?
Well, there is a church like this, and we invite you to come check out our services and programs.

It’s a great time of year in New England when people relax and go on vacation and the church functions on a much more casual level. Unfortunately, with no services in July and low attendance in August, giving decreases during the summer, but the invoices and bills still need to be paid! Please remember the church with your usual contributions during the next couple of months so that we don’t have to dip into our cash reserves. You can mail checks to the church, drop them off in the church office or send them via the bill payment service of your bank.
If you have any questions about any of these very important topics, please contact the Stewardship Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-744-1551.
