Sunday, October 23rd we will celebrate the Ministry of the Open and Affirming Ministry Team. Rev. Jim will preach on “Embracing and Engaging “ using a poem by Ellen Bass, "Pray for Peace", and Luke 18: 9-14.
After Worship, the ONA Ministry Team will present a program titled “Being You: A Conversation about Gender Identity.” The program, intended for youth and adults, will feature diverse looks at the transgender experience. Panelists include a male high school student who is transgender and a teen who identifies as genderqueer. The other panelists are a transgender adult who is a United Church of Christ minister and trans educator, and a public school educator who trains others in sensitive and culturally appropriate practices with trans teens. Please call the church office (781-444-2510) and leave your name, phone number and number of people attending.
You may also join us for Coffee hour in Fellowship Hall and Bible Study in the Reception Room. We look forward to seeing you!
