 Happy Thanksgiving!

Advent begins on Sunday December 1

 

Your Rockdale Congregational UCC Church of Northbridge faith community looks forward to welcoming you home.

 

We have welcomed our youth back to Sunday School, and to another year of learning of how God’s love extends to all of God’s children.  If you have a child in your life who you’d like to know about God’s love for them then please bring them and invite their parent/s/guardians to check out our Church. We are a church that welcomes ALL people.

We have no problem with children who are too young to attend Sunday School in our sanctuary and have folks who will also help to soothe and support the children of your guests.

Upcoming Worship services:

Sunday December 1 first Sunday of Advent

Sunday December 8 second Sunday of Advent

Sunday December 15 third Sunday of Advent

Sunday December 22 fourth Sunday of Advent & Christmas Sunday

All are welcome!

The Rockdale Congregational Church is looking for donations to help cover costs associated with making our building handicapped accessible.  The property has been surveyed and we will be working with an architect and builder to create a building that can be accessed by all.  This will most likely come at a significant cost for our small congregation, but we are committed to making these improvements.  Please contact us if you would like to make a living gift to the church. Email Bob at aplandbob@aol.com.  Thanks!

 

Welcome to our corner of the world!  We are a community-based church located in the heart of the Blackstone Valley area of Massachusetts.  We offer child care and Sunday School during service which is at 10:00 AM every Sunday morning.  We are a friendly, caring, welcoming congregation and invite you to join us some Sunday morning!

Rev. Toni DiPina is our pastor.  She brings a great deal of energy and enthusiasm to our church service and we are  very blessed to have a minister of her talents among us.

The last Sunday of each month is also "Food Pantry Day" where we support our local pantry.  Please bring in your donations!!!!

We actively participate in the Northbridge Association of Churches, a group of 12+ churches in town that does wonderful work throughout the community.  We participate in the Blackstone Valley Crop Walk, and the Thanksgiving Food Baskets and Christmas gifts.

We celebrate the Christmas season with Advent readings and hymns throughout December, and with a candle-lit Christmas Eve service filled with carols.

For the Lenten season we have a special Palm Sunday Service, followed by a Maunday Thursday service where the service reflects the last supper and the passion of Christ.  We gather at the water tower at the junction of Hill Street and Benson Road in Northbridge on Easter morning at sunrise for a special service, followed by a great breakfast at the church.  An Easter Sunday service begins at the usual 10 AM time at the church.

We have begun plans to make our sanctuary handicapped accessible.  Stay tuned for more details!

Our church is the perfect place to take some time to escape the craziness of life, and focus on the love that God has for us.
