Another way to grow deeper as a faithful community:   “Show Who You Really Are”

Our church is for “real” people. Bring your true self, including your joys, your sorrows, your fears, your strengths and your weaknesses. God loves you as you are. Don’t hide your struggles, failures or problems.

Thursday afternoon Grief Support Group open to the public

This gathering is for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. The group will meet from 2 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. in the Woodridge Conference Room. Please use the Jackson Road entrance. 

The group starts Thursday, June 1 and will meet June 8, 15, and 22. The group will not meet June 29 or July 6, but will resume on July 13 and meet July 20, 27, and August 3.

For many people, a grief support group makes the process a little easier by building connections with others who are also grieving. A grief support group can have a positive impact on mental health. Studies show that these groups help to reduce depressive symptoms in people who have lost a loved one.

The group is facilitated by Rev. Burton Bagby-Grose, M.Div., Bereavement and Volunteer Coordinator for the VNA of Care New England. The eight session group is open to the public.


Adult Education series continues Monday, June 5 @ 7 pm … 6 weeks looking at “who was Paul and what were his primary teachings?”  
The class begins at 7 pm and ends at 8:15 pm each Monday night.  We use Zoom.
The theme for the 6 weeks of classes for May and June will be:  “Who was Paul and what were his primary teachings?”  During Lent we focused on the teachings of Jesus and now we will turn to the teachings of Paul as found in his New Testament letters.  We will also begin each class with a brief devotion using a Psalm for reflection and centering ourselves on God.  
Our schedule will be:  May 8, 15, and 22 (off for Memorial Day weekend); June 5, 12, and 19; with an end of the year session to wrap up for the summer months on June 26.
