IT IS REALLY HAPPENING! Our building renovation project will start for real after Memorial Day. When it is all done, we will have a new elevator, an accessible entrance, bathrooms on both floors, and a sprinkler system. We will also be reconfigured in terms of offices, the parlor, classrooms and meeting spaces.

We will celebrate next Sunday June 3rd with a groundbreaking as part of our worship service. Come June, we are going to have to live with some chaos and temporary displacement. Here are some things to be aware of: WORSHIP: We will continue to hold regular worship services at 10 am in the sanctuary through the end of the church year, June 17, when we will celebrate with our flower communion.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONCE DEMOLITION OF THE RE WING STARTS JUNE 4th, THERE WILL BE NO BATHROOMS INSIDE THE BUILDING. There will be a porta-potty in the parking lot.

Also, because the elevator is out of commission, we will live stream the services in the vestry for those who cannot or do not want to tackle the stairs.

Summer Services

 Our 2018 Summer Services begin on Sunday, June 24th at 9:00 AM at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts.

Our Summer Services are lay led.  They are shorter  and  more casual than our regular services.  Children are welcome to attend the service.  There is no religious education or  nusery care provided during the summer. 

Construction updates: Summer services will be a little different this year due to the construction.
We have reserved space across the street at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts for the start of our summer services: June 24, July 8, July 15 and July 22.
July 1, we will hope to lead worship in our vestry or chapel, depending on availability.
July 29 we hope by  to be able to hold services in our building through Labor Day. (And yes, we should have indoor bathrooms by then.)

If you have not already, please sign up for the all church events email list, so you can receive any updates over the summer, regarding worship.
