Upcoming Events in the Life of Our Church:

 

Throughout the year, the United Parish of Upton hosts several events here at the church. Some are celebrations in the life of the parish such as the annual Homecoming Brunch and Jazz Sunday Worship Service. Some are fundraisers; the Fall Yard Sale and the Turkey Supper, all of which benefit the programs and outreach of the United Parish. Some of our events benefit outreach projects which the United Parish supports; the Upton Clean Up Day to benefit our wider community and the Dessert Auction, which benefits the Deacons' Benevolence Fund.

 

Be sure to check our calendar and join us for any or all of these occasions.

Wednesday evenings, 5/30-6/20, 7:00-8:30, Memorial Hall

Join Pastor Lourey and fellow parishioners for a time to explore the Bible by learning the tools of biblical criticism and interpretation.

All are welcome!

The group plans to discuss one chapter of the book at each meeting. 

 

Creating with God

Join Pastor Lourey for a time to express whatever form your creative spiritual practice takes. From journaling to coloring to knitting to meditation all spiritual practice is time well spent. All are welcome to meet at the church for a time of creativity and companionship.This fellowship time will be held on Thursday afternoons at 3:30, upstairs in Memorial Hall. Chairlift to second floor available. 

Creating with God will meet on May 31 and then take a break for the summer.

 

Community Supper

Hosted by the Gifts and Services Committee, the Community Supper is held every third Thursday at 5:30 in the lower vestry (use the ground floor side entrance). The Community Supper is a place where our guests can enjoy the company of new and old friends and take a break from having to cook one evening a month. It's an opportunity for those outside of our congregation to come in and see what the United Parish is about, and of course it offers a nutritious meal for all, including a main dish, vegetarian option, salad, bread (generouly donated by Panera Bread), dessert and beverge. We accept a free will offering to help provide the resources necessary to prepare the meal. Donations are not required. Come and bring a friend. We hope to see you there! 

 

The next Community Supper will be on June 21, 2018 at 5:30. Please call the church office to RSVP by Tuesday, June 19. All are welcome!
