Fall Worship Series - Elements of Worship

For the next several weeks, we will follow a series on the Elements of Worship, holding up and looking at each facet of our worship life and delving more deeply into what each part means. Themes will include Welcoming All, The Peace, Confession and Assurance, Walking in the Word, Prayers of the People, The Sermon, The Song of the Church, The Offering and Giving Thanks, Communion, and The Blessing and Going Forth.


Join us Sunday, November 26th from 9:45am-10:45am in the Chapel for the annual wreath-making workshop. There will be music, food, and supplies for everyone to make their own Advent wreath. Open to all! Hosted by the Children and Youth Deepening Ministry Team. Contact cydeepening@upbrookline.org for more information.

Your (Tenor or Bass) Voice is Missing! The Chancel Choir has been growing, filling the church space and the heart space with their robust and prayerful sound. As our Soprano and Alto numbers have swelled this autumn, we are especially in need of Tenors and Basses (low voices) to come explore their place in the choir. We welcome singers of any experience level!

Join us Thursday evenings in Advent, from 6:30-7pm for a contemplative worship service in our Chapel. December 7, 14 and 21. The Advent season is a counter-cultural response to all of the busy-ness that can creep up around us. It means SLOWING down. Remembering to breathe. Taking extra time to pray. Listening. Watching. Waiting.
