Sunday, September 10 at 10 AM
You’re invited … and so are your friends! Homecoming Sunday is almost here and we are so happy to welcome everyone back after the summer holidays. On September 10, the kids will be working with Sally to prepare a LIGHT coffee hour, followed by a cookout and concert on the lawn with the Gilmartin Brothers!
Blessing of the Backpacks
There will be a Blessing of the Backpacks during worship so be sure to bring yours along as we ask for God’s blessing and guidance at the start of another school year.
Gilmartin Brothers Concert
Stick around after worship on Homecoming Sunday, September 10 for a free classic rock cover concert. The concert starts at noon and features the Gilmartin Brothers, back by popular demand! Grilled hot dogs and burgers, chips and beverages will be for sale. Throw your lawn chair or blanket in your car on the way to church and stay to enjoy some great music!
Have you noticed how our garden is growing? Lots of tomatoes, kale, and cucumbers are ready for the picking! Bring some home to enjoy, make something to share at coffee hour or for the Caring Committee to bring to one of our housebound members. Lindsey Medeiros has been harvesting some to bring to the food pantry on Tuesday morning. It’s a community garden … let’s share God’s bounty and blessings with our neighbors!
Thanks to all who have watered and nurtured our plants during the summer!
Racial Justice Training – Sunday, October 8
Racism and white supremacy are problems that are embedded not just in our culture, but also in our churches. At the First Congregational Church of Stoughton, we are committed to the teachings of Jesus, who stood with the oppressed and spoke out against injustice and violence. We believe, as his followers, we must address the hatred of white supremacists and racists among us in practical ways.
On Sunday, October 8 from 2-4 PM, we will be offering a two-hour racial justice training sponsored by the Racial Justice Ministry of the United Church of Christ, “From Tolerance to Unity,” which seeks to create a common language around racism, to unmask racism in our lives, and to encourage long-term engagement in racial justice ministry. This introductory-level training will be led by Rev. Elizabeth Magill. Please plan to join us. For this important information to reach as many people as possible we strongly encourage you to invite friends and family members to come along. If we want to help dismantle the evil of racism, this two-hour event is a good place to begin.
Welcome to the United Church of Christ in Stoughton! Our new sign, created by church members Gale and Ed Porter, is a clear affirmation of what our church is all about: Love Lives Here! We believe that each person, without exception, is created by God and deeply loved by God, and we do our best to extend that same unconditional, heartfelt welcome to everyone. Please join us for worship on Sunday at 10:00 AM to see for yourself!
