Sunday Service 9:30am – All are Welcome

We ring in worship together every Sunday at 9:30am – you might hear our bell! Enjoy traditional hymns and a talented choir accompanied by a marvelous pianist. We offer a written bulletin in the Narthex for anyone interested. During the school year, kids gather mid-service with our Minister, Cordelia Burpee, for a fun exchange as they head off to Sunday School that will wrap up at the same time as the morning service. After the service concludes, please feel welcome to join us downstairs for coffee, pastries and conversation.

Join us at 24 South Street South Hero, VT 05486 every Sunday at 9:30am – Fellowship to follow the service.
