January 8th Worship

This Week at UPA

January 8th Worship

Lesson: Matthew 2:1-12

Guest Preacher: Rev. Alex Shea Will!

I’m so excited to welcome Rev. Alex Shea Will to our pulpit this Epiphany Sunday! Rev. Shea Will is the Associate Conference Minister of the Metropolitan Boston Association of the Southern New England Conference of the UCC. Seeing as we will be celebrating the Magi’s visit to Bethlehem and the baby Jesus this Sunday, he has promised a sermon founded in the theme of epiphany which offers a bit of a bird’s eye view of the state of the Church (meaning the entire Christian church – not just our little piece!) I would definitely recommend you all adjust your calendars so you can be here for this. Alex is a wonderfully dynamic speaker with contagious energy. You will leave transformed!

** Some other exciting things to look forward to in worship:
February 26th – Rev. We Hyun Chang, DS of the Commonwealth East District of the New England United Methodist Church is our guest preacher!


Prelude: “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”  Johann Sebastian Bach
Meditation: “Arietta” Edvard Grieg
Postlude: Nocturne”  Frédéric Chopin

Live Stream Information

We will continue streaming our worship on both Zoom and Facebook Live. Please share these links with your friends. Bear in mind that we cannot share the Zoom links publicly (to keep from being Zoom bombed), so please share it person to person rather than posting it on Facebook/Twitter, or other public social media. It’s fine to share the Facebook link broadly and publicly. For Zoom login information please reach out to Pastor Cheryl at cherly@newtonchurch.org.

Note: that we continue to work on streaming as we make improvements to the sanctuary sound system.
