Worship This Summer
 
It’s been fourteen months since we’ve been able to gather in-person in our beloved sanctuary. But things are changing: we are now gathering for worship at the Marblehead Lighthouse – as long as it’s not raining – at 8 am every Sunday morning. If it is raining, our service will be held in the Sanctuary. If you can’t join us at Chandler Hovey Park, you can continue to join us in cyberspace. Our on-line summer services will have a different look and feel than what we’ve gotten used to for the past year: we’ll be filming our Lighthouse service each week, then posting it to our YouTube channel (Old North Church Marblehead) and Facebook page (Friends of Old North Church Marblehead.) We hope you’ll join us for worship this week and every week, whether in-person at the Lighthouse or on-line!

Anti-Racism Accountability Group
