East Congregational Church, UCC

An Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ
in Milton, Massachusetts

Welcome to East Church

People of all kinds and much faith,
Building and Serving Community in Christ’s Name.

We are finding great joy and praying for healing and wholeness for all of God’s good creation as we live in these extraordinary pandemic days.

Our faith in the steadfast love of our God
whose Holy Spirit abides with us everywhere,
and our love and concern for the well-being of our neighbors
and friends, especially the most vulnerable among us,
leads us to
continue to suspend all in-person gatherings
of any kind until further notice.

We give thanks for the guidance of our Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ, the Massachusetts Council of Churches, the Milton Department of Public Health, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as we navigate these ever-changing waters together. And even though Governor Baker’s Phase One Re-Opening Plan included houses of worship, with considerable restrictions, we believe the most faithful response for our congregation is to continue to suspend all in-person gatherings, including worship, until further notice.

Knowing our church is alive and well and as open as ever, and it is only our building that is presently closed, we continue to gather virtually in new and important ways,
praying for one another — and for you — without ceasing,
intentionally connecting remotely with one another, gathering for worship and faith formation with new technologies, and continuing to live courageously into our shared mission of:
Building and Serving Community in Christ’s Name.

For the forseeable future our worship services will be conducted virtually, still at 10:00 AM, EST. Please do join us! Login information is not posted online but is freely available upon request from the sources provided elsewhere on this page. Each week’s order of worship is available here, typically updated Saturday evening.
