If you are visiting us for the first time, please allow us to extend our warmest greetings. We are an open and affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. We look forward to having you join us in worship.
Churchill is believed to have said “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.” This Sunday, September 24th, we will read the story of the Bible’s most skilled liars and Esau’s stolen blessing. Gary’s sermon is titled “The Trickster.” We look forward to seeing you in worship.
This Sunday, September 17th, the lectionary would have us revisit the troubling story of the binding of Isaac, so we’re going to mix it up and read the equally troubling story of Ishmael. Gary’s sermon is titled “He Do the Police in Different Voices.” We will also celebrate a baptism. Join us as we worship, learn, and celebrate.
This Sunday we start our “program” year with the Creation myth. Gary’s sermon is titled “The Shadow Shows.”
This Labor Day Sunday, Derek van Bever, our congregation’s own candidate for ordination, preaches. The Lesson For All Ages is called “Seeing With Our Mind’s Eye,” and Derek’s sermon is “Who’s Serving Whom?” Paul Kelly will be sitting in for Music Director Gerald Wheeler. We will also be celebrating at the Lord’s open table of love.
Gary will be giving a talk “From Horab to Blue Hill” at Blue Hill Public Library on September 7th, 7:00-8:30 pm, in the Howard Room. The presentation will look at the Judeo-Christian trajectory from the ancient Hebrew faith to Jonathan Fisher’s Congregationalism and on to the UCC. For more information, go to the BHPL calendar.
This Sunday, August 27th, we conclude our Summer of Love worship series with a look at the community of love. The Lesson for All Ages is “Difficult Math” and the sermon is “A Window is Required.” We’ll also welcome new members, then immediately reset the church for the Celebration of the Life of Bob Marville, which will begin at 1:00pm.
