Ministry Teams

-A A +A

Founded on the conviction that all Christians are called by Christ to ministry, a "ministry team" is a small group of members and friends who feel called to serve, whether in the church, or even more frequently, in our daily lives. This team model assumes that we need support and encouragement to be faithful in our various ministries and that the ministries of the organized church need to illumine our ministries in our various workplaces. Each person brings his or her own unique talents and perspectives which, blended together, shape their response to Christ's call to minister.

"We are a Christ-centered inclusive community called to ministry."

Our vision statement reflects a growing hunger among our members to live out of a deep and passionate faith in Christ as we strive to be faithful in our daily lives and workplaces. With the very real pressures of modern life and the countless demands upon our time, energy and resources, it is essential that our efforts are clearly and faithfully focused. More than ever, we need to experience the support of others in addressing the challenges that face us. We do not want to go it alone. We need each other, and we yearn to connect our inner spiritual journey with our outer journey in service to God's world. We believe the two—the inner and outer journeys—are inextricably linked together, but we need help in creating and practicing that connection.

Ministry teams hold monthly meetings at an agreed upon time by the team members.  The pastors and Church Council members meet with the various teams as needed. If you have questions about any of our ministry teams, or when a particular team meets, please contact the Church Office at [email protected] or 781-659-2887, ext 0.
