This Church is More Than a Website
We’re united by our passion for hospitality—we like to bring people together, sharing spiritual and physical food with people of all ages, and that’s why we developed this website. Inspired by the pandemic, we still wanted to be who we are—and we have never limited our ministry to our membership. If you request to join using the link above, you will find all the news about our ministries, and all the resources for joining in: links, polls, calendars, prayer requests, videos and pics.
Church on the Common, Church Unbound
Drawn In - new worship series
This series theme offers us an opportunity to practice sharing the story of how our ministries are related to our love of God, and how our spiritual gifts connect to our ministries.

It may not be Cinco de Mayo but we're serving a Mexican influenced dinner for our May Community Supper, featuring a beef and bean enchilada casserole. A meatless version with black beans and vegetables will also be available. Bars, brownies and cookies baked with love by our United Parish bakers will be served for dessert.
For the first time in more than two years, we are thrilled to be able to invite you to dine-in with us in the original spirit of our Community Supper. Take out is also available with contact-less delivery right to your car.
Please reserve your supper by calling the church office at (508) 529-3192 by May 13th. Please indicate dine-in or take out when placing your order. Whether you are a regular or participating for the first time, we look forward to cooking for you.
