Upcoming Events

Agape Spiritual Community, a gathering of contemplative activists serving the heart of Waltham, has chosen to suspend in-person gatherings of all kinds throughout the end of 2020.  In line with our belief in a radical hospitality that welcomes all, we have chosen not to return to physical in-person worship or gathering together until we can develop a careful and thorough plan that will protect everyone.  We will send another update about moving forward in mid-December.  Sunday Worship Services, Thursday Meditations, and intermittent gatherings will continue online as planned. Our schedule is detailed on this website.  See the full "Phasing Forward" letter here
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 :)

Agape Advent Service with guest Keith Butler
Sunday, December 6 at 4:30pm via Zoom

Keith Butler was born in Virginia where he graduated with an Advanced Studies diploma from Windsor High School. He then went on to study Theatre and Dance with an emphasis in Theatre and a minor in African-American Studies at Old Dominion University. He pursued his love of acting through many performances in Virginia which landed him in Chicago where he eventually landed the role of Kevin in Kevin’s Room, a made for television movie that addressed many topics within the black gay community. While in Chicago he was also hired to be a professional public speaker for Colgate-Palmolive. After being bitten by the professional acting bug he then moved to Los Angeles to act in film and television. You may have seen him in shows like How I Met Your Mother, Commander-In-Chief, Girlfriends or movies like Poseidon and Dreamgirls. Even though he enjoyed the life of Hollywood his heart was always back in Chicago so he moved back in 2009 where resides today with his partner Ron. 

Keith is a member of The Lighthouse Church of Chicago where he served as a leader for 3 years. Now Keith focuses on his recovery, enjoys building his life together with Ron and finishing the editing of his first book hopefully to be out in 2021 but most importantly listens for where God wants to use him next.
