A Traditional Service


Progressive Theology

front at christmas copy

We invite you to join us in:

The joyous worship of God,
following the teaching of Jesus Christ,
and experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit.

We provide a sanctuary where individuals and families can pray, give thanks for their blessings and participate in God’s healing.

We nurture our growth as Christians through our education programs for all ages.

We offer ourselves for Christian service in order to put our faith into action with others.

As you enter, you will be welcomed into our architecturally unique worship space with its historic Skinner pipe organ. But as rich a part of our heritage as these things are, the best part of your experience will be the people you will encounter while worshiping here. We are an Open and Affirming congregation. We have a traditional service, progressive theology and educational programs for all ages.

Vox Lucens to bring A Capella Early Music to Sunday Worship Service

Artists in Residence Vox Lucens will be providing special music for our service on Sunday, August 10. They will be presenting two pieces; for the Prelude, “In te, Domine, speravi” by Jean Lheritier and for the Offertory, “Laudate Dominum” by Thomas Tallis. We invite the community to come and experience this special music service.

For more information about Vox Lucens and our Artists in Residence program, please see the Artists in Residence page.

Mission Trip

Our high school youth have returned from an event-filled mission trip to Warrensburg, New York.

School supplies

PACC is collecting school supplies in support of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless and its drive to collect school supplies for homeless children in Massachusetts. Donations will be accepted the Sundays of August 3, 10, and 17.

We celebrated Kathy Richardson (center) and her 20 years of service to the church as our administrative assistant.

The church has marched in Boston Pride for several years (a larger image shows our orange sign in the back center).

Sally Rogers led a dedication in the Fellowship Room of a picture commemorating the Pleasant Street Congregational Church and its contributions to the community.
