Worship Services

March 4th - As the Landscape Changes

We’re presently in the midst of profound change regarding the role religion plays in society, and that includes the uses of church buildings.  One manifestation of this change involves churches being shut down as places of worship and repurposed. This sermon will use that lens to explore what people essentially look for in a church.


March 11th - Reaping and Sowing; Investing and Profit Taking

Whether the imagery is agricultural or financial, the point remains the same: when we give, we inevitably get - whether it be food, money, kindness, learning, or something else. This sermon will explore the varieties of commitment, in particular what members get when giving to a church.


March 18th - Guest minister Dave Egan

The ministerial intern from Old Ship will travel up Main Street to join us this morning. Dave Egan, in his final year of divinity school at Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, worked with Stephanie when she exchanged pulpits with Rev. Ken Read-Brown in January.  It's a delight to welcome a promising, gifted young seminarian to the pulpit!


March 25 - It's Never Simple

On this Palm Sunday, we'll have palms to remember the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem, but once the children go to Sunday School we will focus on the difficult events leading up to Easter and how much-anticipated events can turn out so differently from how we have planned them. The sermon will consider the complications and consequences of our human endeavors from a long perspective.


Meet Our Minister,
Rev. Stephanie Shute Kelsch u
