Sunday Fellowship in the Light 2021

  • December 13, 2021

Sunday Fellowship enjoyed our first Advent gathering as one large group since 2019 and it was wonderful. Bathed in candlelight, we sang, prayed and explored the many names of Jesus through scrolls and word searches. Check out our photos and try one of the word searches. Have a blessed Advent!

Team WCUC @ Minute Man March

  • September 29, 2021

Team WCUC had great day at the Minute Man March! It started with a team photo and blessing, followed by a crew of all ages doing the March together. Together, we raised $2025, gave out 50 flowers of appreciation to MMArc staff, and prepared 40 postcards to send to our senators in support of the Better Care, Better Jobs Act! Thank you to all of our marchers and supporters. God Bless Every Body!

Party Time!

  • June 9, 2021

After being forced to cancel our Pentecost event due to predicted storms (which never materialized), Sunday Fellowship was determined to gather together on June 6th despite the record heat. Once we consulted with Minute Man Arc’s nurse, packed coolers full of cold drinks and set-up in the shade, it was party-time! Enjoy these photos of Sunday Fellowship’s first in-person gathering since March 2020.

Sunday Fellowship In-Person on Palm Sunday

  • March 31, 2021

Over the course of three hours, more than fifty members and friends of Sunday Fellowship paraded through the sanctuary visiting prayer stations depicting the last week of Jesus’ life. For most of us, it was the first time we had physically been inside the church since 2020 and it felt good.

One station invited us to add our own figures to the crowd of people watching Jesus ride into Jerusalem on a donkey. Another offered each of us our own purple scroll with teachings Jesus might have preached about in the Temple after he chased away the moneychangers. We took home cloth with a drop of fragrant oil and tiny loaves of bread to remind us of the Last Supper. We lit prayer candles, we painted rocks and we walked a palm strewn path up to a cross. What better way to enter holy week than to finally be able to engage in worship with our whole bodies?!

Many thanks to everyone who helped prepare the space and materials for Sunday Fellowship to enjoy. Please enjoy some pictures of the day.

Christmas Eve in the Garden

Thanks to the efforts of many, we had two gatherings on Christmas Eve to share the story of Emmanuel, God-with-us. Take a look!

SF in the Light and In-person

A huge “thank you” to all of our volunteers, caregivers and staff for making Sunday Fellowship in the Light possible this year in all its many forms! It is a testament to our partnership that we were able to offer a safe event that was truly accessible to everyone. Please enjoy these photos showing outdoor visits at home with baby Jesus and in-person visits to a music-filled, candlelit Sanctuary for the first time since March. We hope everyone is enjoying their gift bag filled with holiday cookies and Sunday Fellowship’s newly minted T-shirts. Merry Christmas to all!

Interview Highlights with Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins

  • November 11, 2020

One year ago, Sunday Fellowship and Children’s Ministries partnered with the Village Art room to create a communal icon of depicting Jesus, the Disabled God, with the saints of the disability rights movement. Little did we know that one of our favorite disability saints, Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins, would see her image on our icon and want to connect with us.

After weeks of careful preparation, representatives from Sunday Fellowship and Children’s Ministries interviewed Keelan-Chaffins and her mother. It was fascinating to hear Keelan-Chaffins talk about becoming “a master of talking with the media by the time [she] was six and half” and explaining the social model of disability. Highlight clips from the 37 minute interview are posted below. The entire interview can be viewed here.

Sunday Fellowship is also making T shirts with the image of Jesus as the Disabled God on the front and Rebekah Anderson’s powerful meditation “The Body of God” on the back. The cost is $25 per shirt (add $8 with shipping) but financial assistance is available. To order a T shirt, use this link.

Thanks be to God for Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins and all the saints of the disability rights movement!

Youth Go Kayaking!

  • September 29, 2020

Our first in-person gathering since last March was a huge success. A sunny afternoon on the Concord River with friends and parents was food for the soul. We give thanks for our time together and for the beauty of God’s creation – the water, the trees, the grassy banks, and the interesting wildlife. It was wonderful to reconnect and enjoy the great outdoors!
