When weather conditions are severe and the potential for road accidents increases, regular worship services, Sunday school classes, and scheduled activities will not take place. A message to this effect will be placed on the church phone lines (508/653-2244) by 8:00 AM. This will always be the case when the governor declares a snow emergency. Cancellations can also be found on WBZ-TV and CBSBoston.com. On WBZ-TV, you will notice a crawl on the bottom of the screen both during newscast and over programming. The full list of cancellations will also be available online at CBSBoston.com.
Eliot Church becomes an Open and Affirming congregation
At a special meeting of the Eliot Church, members unanimously voted for the church to become an Open and Affirming congregation. The vote culminates a two-year process of reflection and discussion within the church membership. Open and Affirming Committee member Randy Glidden was delighted with the outcome. “Members of our church come together from many backgrounds,” he said. “And this vote reaffirms our belief in the dignity and equality of all people.”
The Eliot Church Open and Affirming Statement reads:
We, the members of The Eliot Church of South Natick, long committed to the belief in the dignity and equality of all people, do hereby declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming Congregation. As such we welcome into our church community people of every family structure, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression. We also welcome people of all ages, genders, abilities, races, nationalities, faith backgrounds, and of every economic and social status. No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome in this church. We invite all people to attend our services and to actively participate in the life and vision of our Church, as expressed in our Covenant: In the love of Truth and in the Spirit of Jesus, we unite for the worship of God and the service of All.
