Church at Sunset

Home

Welcome

Welcome to our community.  Answering the call to love and justice from this small town in Central Massachusetts, we gather for worship, programs, community events, and more. Our church embraces the universal dignity of mankind, freedom of belief, and the creation of a just and sustainable world.  Membership in the congregation is open to all.

Regular services at our Church were temporarily suspended due to the pandemic in mid-March.  However, we have held some services this summer in the courtyard garden and will resume services in the church sanctuary in October.  Services will be held with music but no singing. Enjoy the sounds of organ or guitar in the peaceful setting of the Sanctuary, thanks to the talents of Cathy Tyng and Marc Erwin.  During a service, everyone is required to wear a mask and be seated at least 6 feet away from any other attendee who is not your family member. The current Health Department guidance limits the number of people in the Sanctuary to 21 based on square footage. And of course there will be no coffee hour.
All services are at 10:30

  • October 11, 2020 – Reverend Inanna Arthen, Confronting the Past/Indigenous Peoples Day
  • October 25 – Reverend Inanna Arthen, Ancestors/Facing the Dark (Samhain)
  • November 8 – Reverend Inanna Arthen, Sacrifice/Veterans Day
  • November 22 – Reverend Innana Arthen, Gratitude/Thanksgiving
  • December 13 – Reverend Innana Arthen, The Four Freedoms: Freedom from Fear (Pearl Harbor Day observance)

During the continuing hiatus, we ask that if you cannot gather in person you join in virtual togetherness at 10:30 every Sunday morning to do whatever helps feed your spirit of community:   meditate, sing, pray, hike, dance and stomp, walk the dog, pet the cat.  Whatever slows the mind and soothes the soul.  Please reach out if you are in need of someone to run an errand, offer an ear to listen to a worried or angry vent, or a wave and check in. 

And Pam Chevalier, our Finance Chair says please remember to continue to support the church financially by fulfilling your pledge. We obviously have missed out on our miscellaneous fundraisers like the plant sale and the yard sale. And have truly missed not only the music and community of the Jams but also the building rental. 

Here is our Covenant:

Our church shall be a fellowship of free minds, dedicated to the unending search for truth and to a quest for religious and ethical values.  Acknowledging our debt to the Judeo-Christian tradition, we unite in worship and in service to promote the universal dignity of each person, respect for freedom of belief, and the building of a better community and world according to the seven principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

You can learn more about our community, our worship, calendar of servicesleadership, and history.  Please visit us on Sundays or contact us with questions, comments, or interest in using one of our properties for your own social event.
