Join us for fellowship and a meal on Thursday, November 16th, downstairs in Fellowship Hall, from 5:30-6:30 p.m., for our next Community Friendship Supper. This month we will be serving sloppy joes, with fresh salad, bread and desserts. It is free (though free-will offerings are accepted, and the offerings are used by the Missions Committee to help those in need in our church and community). Everyone is welcome!
Mark Your Calendars for the Next Church Supper
Saturday, November 18, 2017 5:30 p.m. — Roast Pork Dinner. Dinner will be $12.00 for adults and $5.00 for children under 12. For reservations, please call the church office at 978-355-4041.
The Annual Church Fair is December 2nd!
BCCUCC will hold its annual church fair on Saturday, December 2nd from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. downstairs in Fellowship Hall at 30 Park Street. This year, there will be a variety of handmade crafts, baked goods, raffles, and a tea/luncheon.
While the Church Fair is sponsored by Women's Fellowship, this is an all-church event that requires the participation and support of everyone in the congregation. Without the help of our fellow congregants, Women’s Fellowship cannot meet their pledge of $3,000 to the church and assist with the church's special projects. You can help by contributing baked goods, candy, a basket for the Basket Raffle, gift cards, and of course, your time. We offer space for crafters and others wishing to sell their creations. Help is needed on the day of the fair, not only during the event, but to help out with cleaning up afterward.
Come and join us for a wonderful annual event as we usher in the Christmas season.
Help the Flower Committee Decorate the Sanctuary for Advent
Advent begins on Sunday, November 26th, and the Flower Committee is looking for donations of poinsettias to decorate our beautiful Sanctuary. Please leave a message on the church’s answering machine at 978-355-4041 if you would like to donate.
