Light, Service & Table

Come join our faith community.  We are an open and affirming church.  This means we actively support diversity in all its forms.  See Open and Affirming statement.  We welcome everyone into the fellowship and service of our congregation.   Our Sunday Worship and Sunday School is at 10:00 a.m.

Our mission is to grow in our relationships with God and those around us.  We find God in the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures, in service to others, and in the celebration and commemoration of the important milestones in the life of our families and communities.   See our Beliefs.

We are in the Season of the Easter Spirit!

In our church we combine the Easter Season with the traditional Season of Pentecost, following the book of John’s approach.  This means that between now and early June, our focus is on opening ourselves in service to the dynamic light and creative energy of the Trinity. which heals the soul-crushing polarities of our world.   We see the Trinity symbolized in nature: as seeds, which are nurtured and watered, and then activated by the powerful sunlight, becoming glorious flowers!  So the season is marked by creativity.  Look at our church calendar and our special events menu to see some of the highlights such as

10:00 a.m. Worship and Sunday School in the Easter Spirit

*Worship will continue to explore Meditation practices that opens us to the Trinity, continuing to explore Holy Communion, Centering Prayer (“heartfulness” – Fr. Thomas Keating’s term), and MIndfulness Practices (from Dan Harris’s 10% Happier book for One Book, One Town)

*We will also continue to develop our ministries of service – as the Pantry Soup concludes for the year, we will focus on Saturday morning’s collection of food for the Ilse Marks Food Pantry in Stoughton.   We also celebrate the next month as Heifer International Month, following the lead of the Sunday School, inspired by the trip to Overlook Farm in Rutland last Sunday.

*Plus, creativity abounds with our upcoming:

-FCCS Talent Show

-Broadway and Beyond – by the Choir in May

-Comedy N Art in June
