Worship Time: 10 am
|Sunday, May 29th – Seventh Sunday of Easter|
Join us this Sunday for an in-person 10:00 am Union Service in the sanctuary of First Church; masks are required. The 10 am service will also be streamed live on the First Church Facebook page.
The service will also be available to watch later on the South Church YouTube channel.
Following the historic event of last Sunday when the congregations of First and South Churches voted overwhelmingly to join forces and create a new UCC entity in Granby, it is appropriate to have a special joint worship service. So, Sunday, May 29th we will gather at 10:00 am in the First Church sanctuary to hear Rev. Sarah B. Drummond lead us in worship. Sarah is the Founding Dean of Andover Newton Seminary at Yale Divinity School. Sarah was a leader in the collaboration effort that in 2017 brought two world renowned seminaries together onto a single campus at Yale in New Haven. Sarah is a prolific writer and much sought-after speaker on issues related to ministerial leadership and the role of our seminaries in educating students for the ministry in a changing world.
Yes, it is Memorial Day weekend, but what better way to spend Sunday morning than worshiping together with folks united in creating a new vibrant church in Granby.
Sarah is the Founding Dean of Andover Newton Seminary at Yale Divinity School. She has been on the Andover Newton faculty since 2005 and was the Dean of Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs from 2011 until 2019 when Andover Newton Theological School joined forces with Yale Divinity School in move that has many similarities to what First and South Churches have done. Sarah grew up in Suffield and completed her undergraduate studies at Yale College, followed by earning her MDiv from Harvard Divinity School and a PHD from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Sarah is an ordained UCC minister and a prolific writer who has authored several books. She lives in New Haven with her husband Dan and daughter JJ.
