Congregational Church

Pastor Matt Goodale is doing a six-week sermon series through Lent that follows Jesus’ journey to the cross. We see the ways that Jesus is more inclusive, more forgiving, and more loving than we tend to be, and Jesus beckons us to live in such a way that shares forgiveness, grace and love with all people. Service starts at 10 a.m.

There is a Lenten adult education class offered at 9 a.m. before the service that encounters Jesus in the book of Luke and invites us into a time of self-reflection during this season. The class will follow a Lenten devotional that is optional. Classes begin at 9 a.m. You are welcome to join even if you missed some sessions.

There is a children’s area in the sanctuary. Join us for fellowship, conversation and refreshment following the service. Please visit our website at for previous sermons and more information about our church.

For your contemplation: “In the ‘The Little Virtues,’ the Italian essayist Natalia Ginzburg argues that we should teach our children ‘not the little virtues but the great ones. Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money; not caution but courage and a contempt for danger; not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but love for one’s neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know.” Paul Rogat Loeb
