In 2018 we are focusing on Scripture and Prayer. To that end, we will have an opportunity each month to gather and pray for our church. Beginning February 22nd, on the fourth Thursday of each month, you're invited to join us in prayer. We will meet in the Burgess Parlor at 9am. This will be a time for us to focus on God's will for us as a fellowship of gathered believers, and to pray with and for one another. All are invited. And if you can't join us in person, you're invited to set aside that time each fourth Thursday, wherever you are, and join us in spirit!
MACCC Annual Spring Meeting
This year, our church will host the Annual Spring Meeting of the Massachusetts Association of Congregational Christian Churches, to be held on Saturday April 7, 2018. The Spring Meeting is a gathering of the churches in the MACCC fellowship, laity and clergy, for socializing, a brief Worship Service, informative program, lunch, and a business meeting. Details on specific content and registration will be forthcoming. The meeting will be from 8am to 2pm. This meeting is a great chance to share fellowship with our sister Congregational Churches in the vicinage, as well as learn more about the Association.
We will be looking for volunteers to help coordinate coffee and snacks for the morning registration, as well as a simple lunch for the gathered guests. If you are willing to help with either, please contact Pastor TC.
Used Clothing Drop-Off
There is a shed in our parking lot for donations of clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, drapes, and stuffed toys. The shed is managed by St. Pauly Textile, Inc., and your donations are delivered to those in need in our local and wider communities. Your donations are NOT shredded. The First Church in Weymouth also benefits by receiving 4 cents per pound of clothing collected, which further aids us in serving the local community.
We ask that you observe the signs on the shed detailing what items we can and cannot accept. Please bag and tie your donations. There is also a receptacle on the shed from which you can take a receipt for tax return purposes.
Eleven times a year (each month from September to June, plus one combined July/August issue) we publish our church newsletter, The Parish Post. The newsletter is mailed out to all households on our church mailing list. Contact the office if you would like to be added to the mailing list.
