Led by Rev. Dr. Mark Boyea with Dr. Herman Weiss, Rebecca Shrimpton and Paul Knox. Streamed on Facebook. Click to watch at 10 AM.
Our past Worship services are also available on YouTube, here.
Throughout the four Sundays of Advent, we explored “The Family Christmas Tree”, looking at characters from the Bible who were in some way a part of Jesus’ ancestry. and considering how aspects of their spiritual journeys speak to us now as members of the same spiritual family tree.
This all culminated with our first – and we all pray, last – “Virtual Only Christmas Eve” celebrations. At 5pm on Thursday, December 24, we offered a special “Christmas Story Time” on Facebook Live for children – a dramatic reading of “The Grumpy Shepherd”. Thanks for finding and choosing this story go to Jeanne Westcott, our new Director of Youth and Children’s Ministries. Click to watch.
Then, at 7pm, our Worship team offered a time of hymns, solos, Scripture and Dramatic Reflection for all ages, with special musical guests Kevin Tracy and Tyler Hauer, as well as a special performance by the First Parish Virtual Choir. What a great gift to all of us! Watch the 7 PM worship here.
In January, we will welcome in the New Year by celebrating the Sacrament of Communion on Sunday the 3rd, and commemorating the life and work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Sunday the 17th.
(Summer services at 9 AM July through Labor Day)
