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!

Oct 21 (Tue): Friendly Service
will meet from 10am to 2pm. After years of putting together school kits for Church World Service, we have decided to make that outreach local. We will be filling preschool-sized backpacks with some of our surplus school materials and donate them to the Head Start students who go to school in our church building. They are expecting 17 students this years and class begins on October 2. Can we gather 17 small backpacks by October 2? The only other items needed are glue sticks. Bring whatever you can to church soon. Head Start is also looking for volunteers to read to children or to help out at lunch time. Contact Janet Clough at 781-344-3860 for more information.
Lunch with the Pastor
Thursday, Oct 3rd
Please join Pastor Mary in the Fireplace Room at 11:45am for Lunch with the Pastor. 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
We are getting ready to host our 7th annual Trunk or Treat Halloween event. It’s a fun Halloween party for us, a safe family environment for trick or treaters and a wonderful opportunity for community outreach and to greet our neighbors. We had so much fun at last year’s Trunk or Treat and we would love for more of you to participate this time. Trunk or Treat runs from 5–7 pm on October 31 so there is plenty of time for you to head out to your own Halloween festivities or trick or treating later in the evening. Let Marcia know if you will participate this year. We need at least a dozen cars to have a successful event.
In the meantime, get those ideas and your creativity flowing! Just Google “Trunk or Treat” and you will find tons of websites with great ideas – as simple or as elaborate as you want. We support the Teal Pumpkin project that helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy.
Please contact Marcia Olson email@example.com | 781-344-9547] or Sally Monahan [firstname.lastname@example.org] for more information or sign up to help.
Food Pantry Collection
Each month on Communion Sunday we collect non-perishable food items to share with our neighbors who are facing challenging circumstances and food insecurity at the Ilse Marks Food Pantry. As we come to the Lord’s Table, let us share our blessings with others.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our group meets every Wednesday at 10am to knit prayer shawls for those who need to feel God’s loving care wrapped around them. We also work on knit goods for the church fair. Don’t know how to knit? We will be happy to teach you. Please join us.
