Order of Service

This Sunday – High School Bridging

Leading:  Our High School Bridgers; AJ MacLeod, Lea Moon and Isaac Williams

Music:  Christina Kennedy, Assistant Music Director; John Middleton-Cox, piano; Lea Moon, guitar; Claire Tompkins, Sean Whelan, Isaac Williams and Alex You, brass quartet

After Service:  Annual Meeting at 11:20 am, Sanctuary

Please join us as we celebrate our high school seniors who will be offering their musical and artistic talents as well as reflections on the values that will guide them on their journeys. We will also observe the Bridging ritual as we say “fare-well” and bless Lea Moon, AJ MacLeod, and Isaac Williams on their way; there will be parts for youth, teachers/mentors and parents to read. Join us for a musical, thoughtful, celebratory morning full of good energy.

Following the service, there will be a brief break for refreshments followed by the Annual Meeting starting at about 11:20 am in the sanctuary. We do need a quorum of at least 39 members to conduct the business of the congregation.

NOTE: This Sunday there is a Sheep Shearing festival on the Common. Mass Ave along the side of the Common in front of the Historical Society will be shut off to traffic from 7am to 5pm; there will not be parking in the Historical Society lot. If you are coming up Salem Street, the Youth Center lot is available; if you are coming from downtown, Academy Road will have parking but some spots may be taken by 10am. You may want to leave a few extra minutes on Sunday to park and get to the service. It’s a great morning to carpool or ride your bike to church!


Please note: If you have recently been exposed to COVID or are having possible symptoms, please join us via Zoom rather than in person.
