Worship Services

April 1st -  For Giving Life

The resurrection stories present across cultures and religions suggest a human fascination with rebirth. While scientific or logical perspectives may often dismiss this fascination, the cycles of Nature remind us that death-growth-rebirth does, in fact, happen. Today we’ll look at the role of forgiveness as it pertains to this cycle particularly in the context of Easter.


April 8th - The Work of Wellspring

Vinny Harte, Executive Director of Wellspring in Hull, will join us in our morning service to talk about the work Wellspring does seeking to “give a hand up, not a hand out.” Passionate about his work, Vinny will introduce us to the many programs Wellspring pursues to help people seeking to improve their lives - including their food pantry, thrift shop, print shop, and educational programs. As this is a "Second Sunday" in which we give anything collected in the offering aside from regular pledges to a local charity, the offering will be donated to Wellspring.


April 15th - An Extended Religious Family: People of the Book

We often speak about the Judeo-Christian tradition, but there are actually three religions connected through text and tradition - Islam being the third. This sermon will take a look at some of the similarities and differences in the written traditions all three religions share.


April 22nd - Waiting to Speak

Technology has increased the speed at which we can respond to questions, challenges, and requests. What’s gained by these quicker responses? Is anything lost? What happens in formal situations where speaking out is strictly controlled?


April 29th - Multigenerational Service on Kindness

During this service we’ll be sharing in small groups stories of kindnesses we have received - through life, through books and poetry, through music, through so many experiences. It will be an opportunity to learn more about what kindness can mean from multiple perspectives. Come prepared to share or to listen!
