Watch a sermon by Adam Hamilton at home (approx. 40 min), followed by a discussion. Come one week or all 4. Sign up here to receive the sermon links.
Luncheon Group invites all "mature mods" (men and women) to join them on the first Monday of each month at noon in UCC Medfield's Fellowship Hall for conversation and a delicious hot meal. Please contact Monica Bushnell with interest.
A Message From the Stewardship Team
Thank you to everyone who pledged to make an impact in 2020 through UCC Medfield. If you haven't pledged yet, JOIN US, as we commit to being a church that expands God's work at UCC Medfield, the surrounding community and the world. A formal commitment allows your ministry teams to better plan the year. For those who were not able to make a pledge last week, there is still time. Pledge cards and the “A” and “B” boxes are set up in the Lobby, or contact Jean Mineo if you'd like one mailed to you.
Service Opportunities at UCC Medfield
Whether it's joining a small group, helping in the kitchen with hospitality, or greeting people at the front door, we want UCC Medfield to be a place where people are using their time and talents to connect to God's purposes. Take some time to browse some of the ways you can get involved, or contact Pastor Karen for more information. Our Greeting Ministry and Fellowship Team, in particular, are actively looking for volunteers to help out on Sundays. Joining a ministry is also one of the best ways to get to know people and get plugged into our community.
