We are a congregation of about 400 active members. Founded in 1790, the church first gathered to worship in our sanctuary in 1809. OUR DOORS ARE OPEN TO ALL. We are a community of peace, love and justice. We don't claim to have all the answers, but we ask questions together. We believe God's love is big enough for everyone.
What We Believe: Our congregation is a part of the United Church of Christ. You can learn more about our denomination and read our church's covenant here.
Parking and Accessibility: The Seymour Street parking lot and north entrance to Fellowship Hall have designated accessible spaces and ramps.The North Pleasant Street (Route 7) entrance also has accessible spaces and ramps. Learn more.
Join us in-person or live-streamed for the MIDDUCC Christmas Pageant on December 19th at 10:00 a.m.
What can Advent waiting teach us about pandemic waiting? Are there ways that “doubling down” on Advent might actually help us endure the other stuff? On two successive Mondays, December 6 and 13 ( at 7 p.m. on Zoom), we invite you to a conversation about how these two experiences, Advent waiting for Christ and pandemic waiting, might be related.
To stimulate our thinking, we will focus on the words to some cherished Advent hymns.
We will partner with Junebug and Buy Again Alley for a clothing giveaway this year. You can bring your GOOD condition, recently WASHED and, undamaged clothes to either location to donate.
When you donate, the BMSC will distribute $25 (value/not redeemable for cash) vouchers to those in need. These are available for families to redeem at either location. We will be working with local organizations to get the vouchers in the hands of the families that need them.
