Welcome!

         Welcome to the Roxbury Congregational Church, UCC website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. 

 

         Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the message found in the word of God. 

 

         The Roxbury Congregational Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the wider community.  

 

          We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ. Come, be our guest!

Our greatest priority is the safety and well-being of our neighbors and members of our congregation. Our actions impact the world around us so practicing physical distancing is not only necessary but it is an act of kindness and love. To paraphrase a verse from the Talmud, "Anyone who saves one life it is as if she has saved the whole world."
Rev. David F. Peters, Minister


A Prayer for these days:


Prayers During the Pandemic

 

May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those that have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country,
let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.

 

Amen.   By Cameron Wiggins Bellm
