The Wedding of Laura Everett and Abbi Holt

Laura and Abbi invite the congregation to their wedding at 5PM on August 29. We need people to usher, to prepare a green room for them.

Ordination on Boston Common

On August 30, we will be ordaining Mary Eaton with Common Cathedral in Boston Common. There will be no other services at Hope Central Church on that day. Our congregation will be preparing and bringing lunch for noon, the service will begin at 1:00PM. Rides will be arranged for those with mobility issues.

Evening Worship

Our 5:30pm evening service ended on June 14. However, interested members of our congregation are gathering every other Sunday at 6:30pm for discussions on creating a viable member-led evening worship scenario. You can read more here, the letter from our pastors and moderator, about our decision to end the evening service as we know it, and envision our needs as a congregation, going forward.

Listen to Reverend Traci Blackmon’s Sermon!

On April 12, Hope Central Church hosted the Rev. Traci Blackmon on behalf of the Massachusetts Conference of the UCC. The Word from Pastor Traci was an incredible moment for our congregation, in our work for racial justice. You can hear her sermon here.
