Tuesday Lunches with the Minister:  Bring your lunch and have lunch with Alison each Tuesday at 12:00 Noon at the Meetinghouse.  If there are five or fewer, we'll have lunch around the table in my office.  If we have more than five we have the Conference Room or Judy's office to choose from.  No agenda, we'll just talk about whatever comes up.  We have such a lovely new Meetinghouse - let's enjoy it together over sandwiches.  No need to call; just show up!

Join us for our first Christmas Eve "Back Home!"

A year ago at this time, we were meeting on Sunday afternoons at First Congregational Church in Amherst while work continued on renovations and a wonderful addition to our 1893 Meetinghouse at 121 North Pleasant Street. In April 2014, we joyfully returned home to offer Sunday services and religious education classes at 10:30 AM in our own space.

This December 24, we will once again welcome one and all to two Christmas Eve celebrations:

5:30 p.m. – An early-evening family-oriented service

7:00 p.m. – A more contemplative service of readings and music, with the choir

Between the two services (6:15 - 7:00 p.m.), please join us in our new Willie Eaton Social Hall for refreshments of the season!
