Messy Church – Baptisms
Mar 24 @ 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!

About the Artist:

Youveline Joseph is a visual artist, born in Haiti but raised in Brockton, Massachusetts. Her passion for art began at a young age. Around the age of five she began to showcase her natural ability to draw and create. In high school she took an International Baccalaureate art class, an advance art class, designed to allow creative students to excel in their art. Later on, Youveline minored in Fine Arts in college while majoring in Sociology with a concentration in Health Medicine.

After graduating in 2017, Youveline decided to pursue her art on a more professional level. She mainly paints with acrylic paint on canvas. While on her journey to understand and grow as an individual she began to develop her Afrocentric painting style. She uses a combination of cowrie shells, crystals, and glitter to personalize her artworks. She also incorporates bright, vibrant colors, patterns, and textures into her pieces.

Moreover, her inspiration comes from beauty, culture, social media, fashion, adversity, and societal issues. Her body of work focuses on representation and her goal is to showcase and praise the beauty of her people (i.e. the diversity in the African diaspora).

First Reformed | Faith and Film
Apr 19 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Reservations Recommended: Text UCCFILM to 41444 or  igfn.us/form/MQcEQg

From the reviews:

“sensitive, suspenseful , weighty…” 

“Religion, First Reformed suggests, is easy. It’s faith that’s hard.”

“First Reformed asks us to take another look at what we think we know about politics, religion and other things we like to argue about, and asks nothing more than our quiet attention.”

~~~

Chad & Anna Kidd will lead the discussion. BYOB. Bring your own beer, wine or soda and experience the places where Pop culture meets our faith. We will watch a current film followed by a discussion about themes of morality, faith, and humanity led by local theologians and community leaders.

This Film Screening and Discussion are free – suggested $10.00 donation is welcomed.

For information about the film title, please email office@sanctuaryucc.org or call 781-395-3360.
