      What to Expect on Sundays

      Sunday services typically include opening words, welcome & announcements, the chalice lighting, an opening song, "Words For All Ages," the singing of the children to their classes, candles of joy & sorrow, the passing of the collection plate (accompanied by a hymn), the sermon, an opportunity for congregational reflection, a closing song, and closing words.


      On most Sundays, children and youth stay in the sanctuary for the first twenty minutes of the service. "Words for All Ages," usually in the form of a story, often told by the Minister, concludes their time in the sanctuary, and they are then released to go to Sunday School. Several times a year, there will be a multi- generational service when the children and youth remain in the sanctuary and we all worship together.


      Following the worship service is the Fellowship Hour, a social hour during which refreshments, including Fair Trade coffee and tea, are served. On the third Sunday of every month, we also host Third Sunday Lunch. 

      Coffee Hour

      Since 2002, we have been participating in the Interfaith Program of a very special fair trade coffee company called Equal Exchange. It is the only coffee we serve during the coffee hour following the Sunday service.


      Equal Exchange is a for-profit Fairtrade worker-owned, cooperative headquartered in West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Equal Exchange distributes organic, gourmet coffee, tea, sugar, cocoa, and chocolate bars produced by farmer cooperatives in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Founded in 1986, it is the oldest and largest Fair Trade coffee company in the United States. Dedicated to concepts of economic justice, the highest paid employee of Equal Exchange may not make more than four times what the lowest paid employee receives.


      Essentially, Equal Exchange brings together the producer and the consumer in an equitable and meaningful way. The middleman (in the case of coffee, called Coyotes), and establishes a more direct connection between the producer and consumer.


      During Third Sunday Lunches and often near holidays, we sell selected Equal Exchange products, including coffee, teas and chocolate. The proceeds from product sales actually funds the coffee we all enjoy on Sunday morning. And, we're be promoting justice with every cup!
