Coming Up in Worship & Religious Education

 

Worship

Sun Sep 24 @10:00AM - 11:00AM
"Commonwealth"
Rev. Bob Johansen

The state of Massachusetts was founded as a commonwealth. What are the biblical and historical roots of this ancient concept? How might we think about the idea of commonwealth today? Our Religious Education classes will continue their journey of understanding, tolerance, and celebration for the diversity in Sacred Places. The older children will visit a Catholic Church as the first of many visits to other places of worship.

Choir rehearsal at 9:00am in the sanctuary.

Fellowship/Coffee Hour follows worship in Hawkins Hall. Please join us!
