“All We Kindred Pilgrim Souls?”

May 16, 2021

As we have talked about over the years, our congregation is (strange as it may seem) descended from the Puritans. You might recall that the Pilgrims (or “Separatists”) who landed in Plymouth in 1620 are a particular subset of the Puritans. For our Auction Sermon, our own church historian, Joyce Williams, has asked me some interesting questions. Namely, How did the Separatists (or Pilgrims) of Plymouth Colony and the Puritans of Boston get along? Did they merge? I found some interesting information to share, and some thoughts about what we might learn from it all.

“Of Covid and Covenant”

May 3, 2020

Our online-only worship service on May 3, 2020 was “Of Covid and Covenant”. If you go to YouTube to watch, click on “show more” in the description. The time stamps (in blue) will enable you to move forward and back to any particular worship element. (Note: in the process of editing in the YouTube studio, I inadvertently deleted the Community Matters announcements by Lezli Whitehouse and the Reading of the Warrant by our Clerk, Lori Grant. I apologize! – Rev. Lara)
