Worship Services

Worship services take place every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. from the Sunday after Labor Day through Father’s Day (the third Sunday of June). Services last approximately one hour, followed by a fellowship hour in the parish hall to which all are cordially invited.

May 21 – When the Goin’ Gets Tough

Our theme for the month of May is Resilience. Set in the annual meta-theme of “Change,” it begs the question of how we cope when life presents us with challenges we didn’t anticipate. This year seems to be giving us all plenty of opportunity to practice. How is it we manage, the Rev. Anne Bancroft wonders, when the goin’ gets tough?

May 28 – Decoration Day

The Rev. Katie Lee Crane’s family called Memorial Day “Decoration Day.” Every spring they made the rounds of cemeteries, “decorating” the graves of their deceased relatives. On this Memorial Day weekend she invites us to ponder this question: “Who do I want to decorate?” Who is on your list of people–living and dead–who influenced you, inspired you, taught you, loved you? Some you knew; some you never knew. Some were relatives; others, strangers. They lived before our time. They lived on the pages of books; they wrote the books. They walked the walk. They made a difference. Rev. Katie Lee, minister emerita at First Parish of Sudbury, is a member of our congregation.

A note from Rev. Anne: We are continuing our monthly themes this year, adding the construct of a meta-theme to guide our choices: the challenges inherent in change. We’d love to have your feedback on this approach to planning our services. Feel free to contact me directly, or to share your thoughts with one of the members of our Committee on Shared Ministry: Joel Neiditz, Peter Stein, Jessica Basile, and Stan Gross. We are all happy to be open ears for your thoughts.
