Gov. Baker has loosened restrictions on houses of worship. Once we meet the recommended guidelines for a safe return, we will be able to meet in person once again.
The Church Council is going to meet this Sunday via Zoom to discuss this matter. After the Council meeting, we will have more information for you.
We are, however, NOT planning to return to the church building this Sunday, May 24th. We will conduct our Sunday worship Service on Zoom this Sunday, May 24th.
Please check our website, FB page and your emails as we share our plans to move forward. And if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to share them with anyone on Church Council
Our 350th Anniversary
We encourage your engagement with the history of our church. If, for example, you are a descendant of Rev. William Williams, or you were present in person when the congregation voted to join the UCC, or if you would like to share some other information or anecdote about the church, please add it through the comment section. In this way, the history of our church is made more alive.
The actual Service begins around the bookmark at the 3-minute mark in the video. The first few minutes are the enthusiastic greetings among participants, and the video concludes with more of the same during our "Bring your own coffee coffee hour."
Faith, love and chitchat.
