A Note from Rev. Mary Day Miller
These first few weeks will be filled with listening, learning, and making connections. Please be patient with me as I try to learn many new names in a short time! Above all, I covet your prayers as I am settling in to my new calling (and home!) here in Massachusetts. I am joyfully anticipating what God will be doing through us and among us in the days to come!

My Service of Installation as your new executive minister is set for Saturday, Nov. 21st. Details will follow as we get nearer to the date.

I can be reached by email at or (978) 732-9111. —Serving Christ, Mary
