Sunday Worship

We'll gather this Sunday to worship and remember the life, ministry, and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We'll sing spirituals and reflect on Dr. King's prophetic words that remind us of how desperately we need one another to face the challenges Dr. King one day dreamed we would overcome. The Sanctuary Choir will sing Precious Lord, Take My Hand by gospel great Thomas Dorsey. Pastor Dana preaching. Childcare available.
Children’s Worship Service

All children are welcome to spend worship in the chapel this Sunday. There will be a short video about faith, justice and community, songs, activities and more! Even the youngest can bring more justice and goodness to the world.
Faith Forum

We start a new discussion topic this week - Racism - using the book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo.  We will view a video introduction by the author. Led by Mary Pritchard and Chris Ouimet. Come and be warmed by this community of faithful seekers. Child care available.
Newcomer Gathering
Tues., Jan. 21st at 7:00pm in the SC Library

South Church may be over 300 years old, but our thinking isn’t. We believe that loving God with all your heart doesn’t mean you can’t use all of your head, too. If you agree, we’d love to see more of you. Questions? Contact Alex.

Green Bee saw too much holiday packaging piled on doorsteps, representing so much waste!  What izz one to do? Read about Amazon's Second Chance program and how they are encouraging re-use here (spoiler alert, the news is not so good as far as recycling is concerned). The good news? Amazon is trying to improve. They are paying attention!
