Book group news
The Book Group will skip September and meet next on Wednesday, October 9th, at 7pm, in the church library. This is an exception to our usual “first Wednesday” meetings.
Following on the death of author Toni Morrison, we have opted to read her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Beloved, as our October selection. Morrison was inspired by the story of an African-American slave who escaped to a free state, and was faced with a horrible choice years before the story opens in 1873.
We usually meet in the church library at 7pm on the first Wednesday of most months. You are welcome to join whether you’ve read (or finished) the book.
Shopping for Justice We purchase grocery cards at a discount and sell them at face value. The difference helps to fund our Social Justice work. Cards for Big Y, Shaw’s and Stop & Shop are available during coffee hour.
We support the Ilsa Marks Sharon-Stoughton Food Pantry year-round (and are among the few organizations that do so).
The need has continued to grow. Please leave your donations of non-perishable food in the entryway.
Weather-Related Cancellations Call the church at 781.784.3652 to learn whether services or other activities are canceled due to weather. We will update here, too, when possible.
Social Justice Movie Night Join us to watch and discuss a movie with a message at 7 pm on the 4th Friday of most months.

All ages are invited to join us one Sunday each month when we make 100 peanut-free lunches for delivery to Father Bill’s/MainSpring House along with donations of individual-size health and beauty items and other requested items.
We regularly collect toothbrushes, travel-size soaps, shampoos, conditioners, toothpaste, diapers (including adult sizes), etc. for the residents of Father Bill’s / MainSpring House.
