All people of faith or in search of faith are welcome in our worship and work at Second Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, at 115 Hillside St. Sunday morning worship begins at 10 o’clock, and includes a Time for the Children in All of Us, after which children up through grade 5 are dismissed for Godly Play. The Middle- and High-school Class is at the Kitchen Cupboard this week for their monthly service work. On this Third Sunday of Easter, Rev. Mary Lee-Clark’s sermon is entitled, “Resurrected into the Ordinary,” based on the story from John’s gospel about Jesus’ meeting the disciples on the lakeshore.
A time of fellowship and refreshment for the whole church family follows in Webster Hall, and the Reading Group meets at 11:35.
