Upcoming Events

Kids are welcome at Agape dinner church & services!  Our services are intentionally intergenerationally friendly for kids.  Several adults are present during services to supervise preschool and elementary school youth in doing art and other faith formation projects.  Children are welcome to participate as much as they desire in the services themselves.  Each service has a "Children's Moment" for kids :)
Super Saturday!
Each spring and fall, the Massachusetts Conference holds a Super Saturday event - a full-day of skill building, networking and discussing best practices. Each event offers numerous workshops, a keynote address, worship, a marketplace of vendors and ideas and an opportunity for church leaders, both clergy and lay, to network with one another.
The keynote speaker, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, is Senior Minister at Middle Collegiate Church, a 1000-member multiracial, welcoming, and inclusive congregation in New York City. She is an activist, preacher, and fierce advocate for racial equality, economic justice, and LGBTQ equality. Middle Church and Jacqui’s activism for these issues has been featured in media such as The Today Show, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The New Yorker, Essence and The Huffington Post. Jacqui is a frequent contributor to MSNBC.  Jacqui is the Co-Founder of The Middle Project, which hosts an annual conference to train faith leaders to build multiracial congregations.
