“Meet the Youth Through their Art…”

Lakota Youth Stay Program 

The purpose of the Lakota YouthStay Program is to foster authentic, mutually fulfilling relationships between Native American youth from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and youth/adults from Eastern Massachusetts. By exchanging visits to each other’s communities, we seek to create cultural understanding.

About ARTChurch: Inspired by the rich spirituality and deep themes inherent in art, ARTChurch looks at scripture and liturgy through the lens of the art installed in the Gallery at Sanctuary UCC. On the second Sunday of each month, we experience the Holy—and the holy in each other—through the images, colors, themes and creative energies of the installation, the artist’s perspective and that which is seen by the observer.

Messy Church
Aug 12 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Traditional worship services can be hard to enjoy as a family.  
That’s why we made Messy Church!

Messy Church is a worship service designed especially for children, ages 0-5, and their parents. 

At Messy Church, we sing, we read bible stories, we play games, do crafts, and eat dinner together.

And, even more importantly, we send home with resources to help you keep the conversation about faith and values going!
