Summer 2024 Office Hours July 2 – Aug 27: The church office will be open on Tuesdays from 9 – 1, with Jen also keeping an eye on email and voicemails through the rest of the week. Jen will be on vacation and unavailable the weeks of July 14 and August 11. Regular office hours will resume on September 3.

Office Hours: Office Hours are Monday and Wednesday 9 am – 3 pm; Thursday 9 am – 2 pm. Jen works from home on Tuesdays from 9 am – 3 pm to accommodate office access needs for other staff and volunteers.  She is available by phone (508-853-1942 ext 102) and email () as usual on Tuesdays, unless she is dealing with family medical needs. On those dates phone calls and emails will be returned as soon as possible.

KEY RETURNS: If you are holding a church key but are no longer on a church/RE committee or team, please return your key to the church as soon as possible. We have new volunteers to the church that need keys to do their important work for our community, and we would like to save the money it would cost to have more keys made. Keys can be returned during office hours or dropped in the office mailbox to return them.

Email address update: Due to a change in the way we access email from the server, it is very important that the correct email be used to contact the office. The correct email is <– the .org is important! Even though you may still see the .net in the headers, please make sure the correct address is in your to field, or it will never be seen. Please update your contact lists accordingly!
