Upcoming events this month
Join us for these special services and events
Sunday mornings at 9 AM on January 20th and 27th and February 3rd and 10th -
New Bible Study: “The Challenge of Paul” with Jonathan Guest
On many Roman inscriptions from first century ruins in Turkey were carved the titles “Son of God, Divine, Lord, Savior of the World.” Those inscriptions were talking about Caesar. Titles that we associate with Jesus were already in play in the culture before he appeared on the scene. This challenge to the empire is where Crossan begins his study of Paul. Sign up in the vestry during coffeehour. RSVP here.
Friday, January 25 @6:30 PM - Family Movie Night: "Ratatouille"
The family film Ratatouille touches on themes of striving for goals, friendship, cultural diversity and coping with hardships. Enjoy this family friendly film on our giant screen along with popcorn and other treats!

January 30, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - Pub Theology at the Morse Tavern
Join us for the January edition of Pub Theology when we will explore our personal biographies through the lens of Race. If you were writing your biography, what race would the majority of the characters be during the different phases of your life? What was/is the racial composition of your street, neighborhood, town? How has race shaped your story? These and other questions will provide an evening of interesting dialogue.
Join us for some snacks and a cold beverage. The cost is $10 to cover your libations and munchies. Please sign-up in the vestry or contact the church office to reserve your seat (508-653-0971) or firstname.lastname@example.org. RSVP here.
