Teaching Shalom to our kids
Kids Church is available every Sunday with separate classes for preschool (ages 2.9 – 5 years) and elementary students (ages 6 – 12 years). It is led by a rotation of volunteer teachers who have a passion for children to experience the love of Christ. We use The Gospel Project curriculum, which teaches the entire Bible to children in a 3-year rotation
Nursery is available for parents in a room nearby with a live feed of the service. Couches create a children’s play area with a carpet and toys. At this time, a parent or guardian needs to stay with their child.
NCDot Dance is a dance ministry, currently for girls ages 7 – 12 years. Led by two members with dance and teaching experience, the ministry fosters dance technique, bodily ownership, supportive teamwork, and expressive worship. Dancers perform at holiday and special services.
Modeling Shalom in our youth
In partnership with The Boston Project Ministries, Real Life is our Thursday night youth group. The teenagers meet Thursdays 6 – 8 PM at The Boston Project Ministries house located at 15 Elmhurst Street in Dorchester.
Hydrate is a new Bible study for youth who want to go deeper. It meets on Sundays late afternoon – exact time TBD.
As a growing church, we are currently looking for adults who have a sense of calling to invest in our middle school and/or high school students.
Living out Shalom together
Church Potluck Breakfast is held the second Sunday of the month, in the Boys and Girls’ Club, at 10:30am, which is an hour before service.
Women’s Brunch is held the first Saturday of the month, rotating locations. We enjoy delicious food and meaningful conversations, connecting with one another about life and matters of the heart. This is a great place to get to know other women.
Men’s Fellowship is held every other Friday, 6pm – 8pm at 59 Hazelton, Mattapan. We eat together, share deeply about how we are applying Christ to our lives as men, and pray for one another.
Lighthouse Groups are a place where we can grow deeper as followers of Christ. Groups meet in members’ homes where we set a table and open our doors to neighbors. This is a place where you can connect more deeply with Jesus in a smaller group setting. Groups are co-ed and child friendly and are always open to new people.
We partner with existing Christian ministries and justice organizations to better love our neighbors and our neighborhoods.
