Belong

We long for moments to reconnect with ourselves and one another. We believe that God works within us when we’re in relationship with one another – sharing our joys and concerns, wrestling with doubt, and challenging one another to grow. Caring for those in our church who are grieving, hospitalized, ill or dealing with a major life crisis. Every time we gather together and lead with our hearts, leaning in with vulnerability and intention,  we form our faith here at South Church. Consider yourself invited to everything!

Mon-Fri, July 8th-26th Summer of Service (FULL) Award-winning hands-on service program for kids entering grades 7-12. Participants engage projects in Lawrence, Lowell, Boston, and the greater Merrimack Valley.

Monday, July 15 Theology on Tap Theology isn’t only the stuff of dense books and dead theologians – it happens any time we name God at work in the world. This month we continue a dialogue on what we do and don’t believe. The topic is creationism vs. evolution. Is the book of Genesis to be taken literally? Click here to read more.
