On Sunday, November 29, the first Sunday in Advent this year, East Church presented its annual "Hanging of the Greens" service. Readings explaining the symbols of Advent were presented by the youth and, as the congregation sang traditional Advent hymns, the children set about decorating the Sanctuary. Following worship, an intergenerational Craft Fair in Fellowship Hall was a huge success.
On Sunday, October 24, 2010 East Congregational Church was pleased to host the Metropolitan Boston Association's Fall Meeting. The concluding event of the Fall Meeting was the Sing! Prayer and Praise Workshop. A broad sampling of the new Praise Songbook was presented along with a thorough explanation of the process by which the songs in this new collection were selected. Musicians accompanying the Workshop included: Vocals: Thom Whittemore; Keyboards: Branden Grimmett; Bass: Dwight Dewsnap; Percussion: Glenn Kidder; Trumpet: Fred Sienkiewicz; Flute: Betsy Maholchic; Guitar: Mike Maholchic. Rev. Wendy Vander Hart (Associate Conference Minister) led the prayer.
September 12 was a joyous and energetic morning, orchestrated by the Christian Education Committee.
