Sunday Worship

 "What does God require of you? To do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God." These words from the book of Micah feel so familiar that we forget their impact. But this proclamation was a great moment in the history of religious ideas, a theological sea change, a defining moment for God’s people, Israel, and for the followers of Jesus. God doesn't want rams, lambs, oil, or your stuff, God wants you. God wants faith to be a way of life, inviting us to transform the world into a place of justice and kindness and humility.

The Carol Choir will open worship with an introit called Get Down and the Sanctuary Choir will sing two anthems, Come Dwell in Solomon's Walls and the old standard Offertory. Pastor Dana preaching. Childcare available.
Faith Forum
8:45am in the church library

We continue discussing racism using the book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo. This week we'll discuss chapters 4 and 9. Led by Mary Pritchard and Chris Ouimet. Come and be warmed by this community of faithful seekers. Child care available.

Caregivers Support Group
7:00pm in the SC library

The ministry of care-giving can be frustrating, isolating, and all-consuming. Are you caring for a parent, spouse or other loved one – or preparing to do so? Join others for confidential conversation and fellowship.
Newcomer Gatherings
Sun., Feb. 23rd & March 1st at 11:15am 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.
Summer Camp Preview
Sun., Feb. 23rd at 11:15am in the Chapel

Getting ready for summer yet? There are many wonderful ways to engage in your faith! Representatives from local UCC camps will share what makes their programs so special. Folks from Silver Lake in CT and Star Island in NH as well as VBS and SOS here at South Church and more will be in attendance!
The Green Team Thanks You!

Thanks to all of you who called your MA State Senator to urge for a strong Climate Action bill. Barry Finegold’s office said that he heard from a number of constituents on this issue and it worked! In a marathon late night session on January 30th, they passed a strong bill. Click here to read more.
Green Bee sezz "here is an easy way to save on energy and effort!"

Don't pre-rinse before loading your dishwasher. Dishwasher makers, even the EPA, say: "let your dishwasher do it's job!" You will easily save a few thousand gallons of water and likely dozens of kWh of power for your water heater per year!
We'd Love Your Help!

Our Sunday School time is always filled with games, prayer and special projects for children to participate in during their lessons. If you’re interested in getting in on the fun, please sign up to help out in a classroom. Please sign up here.
