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!

Computers and smartphones not in your comfort zone? If a printed copy is still your preference, please let the church office know and we will gladly mail you a copy of The Link. A donation of $10 to defray the cost of postage would be greatly appreciated. Some print copies will also be available in the literature rack in the church lobby.

We invite all the women of our church to be part of our fellowship. We get together about seven times a year for social, spiritual, and educational purposes. Please feel welcome to join us at any or all of these gatherings. Our first gathering of the church year is September 24 from 4-6 pm. It will be a planning session for this year’s meetings featuring a Pot Luck dinner. Each person is asked to bring food to share for the main part of the meal. Dessert and beverages will be provided by the officers of Women’s Fellowship (Gail Randlov, Maurine Upton, Peggy Webster and Bonnie Bittner). We look forward to a lot of new faces joining us.

Friendly Service meets once a month to work together on community and worldwide service projects. We make quilts for the homeless shelters in Stoughton and Brockton; collect warm clothing and personal items for Seafarer’s Friend in Chelsea; make school bags for Church World Service and fill them with donations of pencils, notebooks, crayons and more from our congregation. Though few in numbers our dedicated band of volunteers continue to enjoy our work days together. We would love to have more of you join us. Our work days begin at 10 am, we bring our own lunches, and continue working until 2 pm. You don’t have to stay the whole time, come for as long as your schedule allows.
We now meet on the third Monday of each month in one of the downstairs rooms. If you are unable to meet at that time, we would be glad to have you take projects home to work on at your own pace. We organize quilt faces, pin the squares together, and you could sew the strips together at home. Or you could make school bags or fill the mending kits we make for Seafarer’s. We can provide all the needed materials, you provide your time to sit and finish the projects. If you have any questions, call Janet Clough at 781-344-3860 or come to our first meeting on Monday, September 17
Lunch with the Pastor
Please join Pastor Mary in the Fireplace Room at 11:45 AM on Thursday, October 4. Bring a brown bag lunch and she will provide beverages and dessert. This is a nice way to share what’s going on in our lives. Bring a friend! All are welcome.
Trunk or Treat
While you are out trick or treating, stop by the church as we host our 6th annual Trunk or Treat with cars decorated for Halloween and plenty of candy treats - just the right size for little feet. All are welcome. This event provides a safe family environment for trick or treaters and is a wonderful opportunity for community outreach and to greet our neighbors. We would love to have more cars participating this year! Please let us know if you want to be part of the fun. This event provides a safe family environment for trick or treating and is a wonderful opportunity for community outreach and to meet our neighbors. Trunk or Treat runs from 5 – 7 PM on October 31 so there is plenty of time for you to head out to your Halloween parties later that evening. So get those ideas and your creativity flowing! Gallon milk jugs are needed to make lanterns to illuminate the stone wall and walkway. Please clean out your clear gallon milk jugs and bring them to church. We support the Teal Pumpkin Project that helps make Halloween safe for kids with food allergies so that all children come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. Please contact Marcia Olson firstname.lastname@example.org
