Weekly Services are held on Sunday at 9:30am, followed by Coffee Hour in Parish House across the street.  Sunday School in Parish House for Pre-K through Grade 6.  Nursery services available in the Parish House during services.
Worship is the heart of the life of the church. One of the Biblical metaphors for the church is the ‘Bride of Christ’ and each worship service is like the anniversary celebration. Through worship on Sundays and other special occasions, we remember the resurrection of Christ, we hear God’s word through the Scriptures and the preaching of the Word, we pray together as a church family, we sing together and connect with each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

When God saved the Children of Israel from servitude in Egypt, they were not ferried across the Red Sea one by one. God parted the waters and walked them through together, as one people. When we worship together we remember that we are not alone, but we walk through the troubled waters of this world together in the presence of Christ.

Worship also grounds us in reality. We are more than flesh and bone. We are also spirit, and have our final destiny in Heaven with God. Worship is one of the ways we recognize who we really are and where we are really going.

And as we go through our days, working, raising our families, supporting worthy causes, praying, and living our lives for God individually, we still need that periodic common gathering to speak with one voice in praise and thanksgiving. We need to come into the presence of God as a church family. It is one of the reasons God commands us to remember the Sabbath and to keep it holy.

Communion Sunday is the day we share in the Wedding Celebration of Christ and his Bride (the Church) in Heaven through the sharing of the bread and cup here on Earth. Other Sundays are the days we come to be transformed by the Word together, as the family of God.

One of our Deacons says that, “What unites us [in worship] is stronger than what divides us [in the world].” In the humble act of worshiping God, we gain strength to face the world.

Sunday worship is at 9:30 AM in the meetinghouse.  

Following our Sunday worship services is the Fellowship Hour, hosted by a different board or committee each week, with coffee and refreshments. Come and share this time after the worship service as we gather in fellowship as a church family.

We have special holiday worship services at different times of the year including:

The Ash Wednesday Service is a service of repentance and spiritual preparation for Lent. It is held at 7:30 PM on Ash Wednesday. Check the calendar for the exact time this year.

On Palm Sunday the children of our Sunday School parade through the church with Palms to celebrate Christ as the King.

The Maundy Thursday Service (Holy Thursday) is a beautiful time of traditional worship telling through Scripture readings and hymns the story of the night before Good Friday as we celebrate the Lord’s Last Supper and a Service of Tenebrae. In a darkened church, candles are extinguished one by one as each event in Jesus life that night are remembered, until one single candle remains lit as we exit the church in silence. A moving service, not to be missed!

The Seven Last Words on Good Friday Service is an ecumenical service at noon on Good Friday led by the clergy of Marshfield who deliver brief messages on each of the seven last words (or sentences) Jesus spoke from the cross, interspersed with prayer and hymns.

The Easter Sunrise Service is led at the beach in Green Harbor by our Middle and Senior High Youth Groups. All are welcome to share in this inspirational service. Songs and prayers are offered as the sun rises over the ocean, reminding us of Jesus’ rising from the dead to give us eternal life. Because Easter falls on a different day each year, the time of sunrise changes, so please check our calendar for the exact time each year.

Easter Sunday worship is at 9:30 on Easter Sunday morning. Christ is risen!

The Mother’s Day Service is led by our Junior High students in honor of our mothers.

Sunday School Sunday is usually in June, and is the day we celebrate and recognize our Sunday School students and teachers. Jesus said, “Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” (Luke 18:16)

On Father’s Day, youth of the church participate to honor our fathers.

There is Worship Under The Tent in July on the Sunday of the weekend of our Annual Fair on the Green.

The Thanksgiving Service is held the evening before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the original Congregational holiday, and springs from the heritage of our church, since we are the second church to issue forth from the original church at Plymouth, with people who came over on the Mayflower founding our church.

During each Sunday of Advent we light the candles of the Advent Wreath as we prepare for the coming of Jesus on Christmas Day.

The Hour of Peace, an informal service of music, prayer, and readings both from Scripture and from other sources, usually held about a week before Christmas on a Saturday evening. Check the calendar for the exact time this year.

The Christmas Eve Family Service is held for families with small children, typically after supper and before bedtime. Check the calendar for the exact time this year.

The Christmas Eve Midnight Service is held at 11 PM to Midnight on Christmas Eve by our High School age youth.

Prayer is the center of a Christian’s life with God.  It is a form of communication which is not meant to bend God to our will, but rather, to bend ourselves to God’s will. In prayer, we can talk to God and be assured that God always hears and answers.

Our church has a prayer chain for immediate prayer needs and conducts a special prayer service once a month. Prayer requests may be submitted to the church office for inclusion in our weekly bulletin and Sunday’s pastoral prayer. If you have a concern weighing on your heart that you would like to pray about, please call our church office to speak and pray with our Pastor, one of our Deacons, or have your concern lifted up by our prayer chain.

It was proclaimed by the Prophet Isaiah, “Even those, I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.” (Isaiah 56:7)

The Psalmist reminds us to, “Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10)

And the Apostle Paul urges us to, “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Prayer to enables us to focus on the will of God and allows the Holy Spirit to move in our hearts.

Sacraments We recognize two sacraments, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.


In Baptism we are symbolically buried and raised with Christ. Many Christians, both ancient and modern, immersed the believer who was being baptized, so the image of burial and resurrection was more obvious. Other Christians pour or sprinkle the water, but the meaning is the same. We sprinkle the water. Through baptism a person becomes a member of the family of God. We baptize both children and adults. We baptize children because the early church welcomed entire households into the fold, and baptized both the children and adults. Christ’s promise is to the believer and their children. We also baptize adults who have not been baptized as children. It’s never too late to be baptized!

We believe that Baptism flows from life within the church, and typically perform Baptisms during the Sunday worship service, with the whole congregation present. The Baptism of a child is often a turning point in the faith of the parents, and we welcome and encourage those who, through the Baptism of their children, become more engaged in worship and life in our church. Please contact the Pastor or the church office at 781-834-7664 to arrange for a Baptism.

The Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is a sacred meal instituted by Jesus Christ the night before he died on Good Friday. The bread represents Christ’s body which was broken for us, and the cup represents his blood which was poured out for us. Christ becomes present to us in a special way in the offering of the bread and the cup, which we do in remembrance of him.

The old words of the invitation to communion are, “You who do truly and earnestly repent of your sins, and are in love and charity with your neighbors, and intend to lead a new life, following the commandments of God and walking in his holy ways, draw near with faith and take this holy Sacrament to your comfort.” All Christians are welcome to share communion with us.

We celebrate The Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of every month, and on special occasions. Our Pastor and Deacons also celebrate the Lord’s Supper with the sick or home bound upon request. Please contact the Pastor or the church office at 781-834-7664 if you would like a hospital or home visit.

Special Services The Special Services we offer include Confirmation, Funerals and Memorial Services, and Marriage.

Confirmation Service

Confirmation is a rite in which we recognize the spiritual maturity of our young people as they take ownership of their baptisms and publicly declare that the faith their parents promised on their behalf at Baptism is now their faith by choice.

Our confirmation program begins in September, and is led by a dedicated team of adults who guide the confirmands through a program that challenges their assumptions about God and religion, and deepens their understanding of their faith. Lessons, service projects and retreats bring the young people together and help them focus on their relationship with God through Christ. Deep questions and frank discussions of how Christian belief applies to living in our difficult times are conducted in a safe space. The young people draw closer to God and to each other through this shared journey. The program culminates in May/June with the Confirmation Service. This service includes the laying on of hands and the confirmands being accepted as full members of the church.

Funerals and Memorial Services

The promise of the cross and resurrection of Christ is the forgiveness of sins and eternal life with God. When a loved one has passed on to the next life, it will be a joyous time for that person. For us, left behind in this life, it can be a time of mixed emotions, knowing on the one hand that our loved one has gone on to a better place, but also feeling the loss and grief that accompanies this parting.

A Funeral or Memorial Service helps us to mark the passing, and put our grief into the context of natural cycle of life in this world. Recognition of a death is a healthy part of the grieving process, and not just for the family, as friends may also have a need to “pay their respects.”

The services are often a celebration of the life of the one who has died, and a remembrance of the promises of God, who will take us into his everlasting arms when we draw our last earthly breaths.

Some people find comfort in their faith when a loved one dies, while other people may question their faith. A Christian funeral or memorial service can help us all to mark the loss of our loved one in our lives in giving us a time to be together with those whom we love to remember and celebrate the one we’ve lost. A funeral can be an important part of healthy grieving whereby we begin the process of integrating the great change in our lives caused by the departure of one deeply loved. Our Pastor and our Caring Deacons are available if you need someone to talk to or pray with in your time of sorrow.

For Funeral or Memorial Service arrangements, please contact our Pastor or our church office at 781-834-7664.


Christian Marriage is a life commitment in which a man and woman promise before God, before the community, and before each other, to love, honor and respect each other as they embark on their journey together through life, not as separate individuals simply living together with the “blessing” of the law, but as one flesh, consecrated and joined together by God’s divine blessing.

Christian Marriage is not just a ceremony, or a legal status conferred by city hall with the issue of a marriage license, it is a new life together in Christ, who strengthens the couple’s bond when they open their hearts to him. Marriage is part of God’s plan for families.

Jesus blessed marriage by performing his first miracle at the wedding at Cana, where he turned water into wine. When he spoke of marriage he spoke of it as a joining made by God.

We rejoice in those couples who choose to marry within the church and make God part of their marriage.

For information on weddings, please contact the Pastor or the church office at 781-834-7664.
