Join us as we take our Sunday worship on the road and travel together to Concord NH to worship with our dear siblings Elsa and Reine Abele.

Please fill out this RSVP form
ASAP and by May 10 so we can make travel plans. We will gather at 9am at the church, and be back by 1:30pm. Note that those who can’t join us in worship in NH that day, we will not have any worship at 67 Newbury Street, but encourage people to join our friends at Emmanuel Church at 15 Newbury Street that day at 10am.
