Site Description

First United is a theologically moderate/progressive congregation with historic roots in Lowell. We are racially diverse and eager to grow in ministries in the community. We want to focus on ministries with youth and young adults that are more than the traditional "youth group" formulas in order to shape a church that responds to the needs of tomorrow's world.

Stipend Expectation

This site meets the stipend expectation

Student Involvement

While primary responsibility will be with youth the student will have the opportunity to work with the pastor on areas of worship leadership, teaching and visitation. New learning possibilities are certainly an option and can be negotiated during the student's program.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

It has been a number of years since we have had a student at FUBC but it is certainly a part of the congregation's life in the past and student contributions to the community's life are highly valued. The pastor and supervisory committee are dedicated to helping students grow into their calling and to training pastors for the Church.

Special Considerations

Lowell is on one of the commuter lines out of North Station in Boston. While not officially a "Welcoming and Affirming" congregation, our membership covenant includes the following affirmation: "By the grace of God we will be a church where all who come to us in sincerity to find God's love will be welcomed." We consider our congregation to be a safe place for all people and expect a student to honor that commitment.All employees and volunteers who work with youth must pass a CORI check and agree to our Safe Church policies.

Comments

Lowell is a wonderfully diverse community in which to minister. The congregation is open to learning from the student as well as to providing an opportunity to grow and minister in an environment in which many of them will find themselves when they graduate.
