Site Description

Bethany Congregational Church UCC is a dynamic community of faith located in Foxboro, MA, about a half hour south of campus. We seek to help people to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ! To help us do that, we have a more traditional service on Sunday mornings at 9:15 AM, and a more contemporary service at 10:45 AM. Both services have a nursery and a Sunday School for kids. We have many active small groups for adults that run throughout the week. There are three youth groups for different ages in the church. We are also considering the establishment of a Saturday night service. Our pastor is Rev. Paul Sangree, an Andover Newton graduate. Our church building is also home to Grace Community, a new church start pastored by Rev. Abigail Henrich. While our churches are not formally linked, we share in many ways together, and they have a service in our chapel on Sunday evenings.

Stipend Expectation

This site meets the stipend expectation

Student Involvement

We are looking for a student who is curious and open to learn. Our student will particularly get to focus on worship. We will invite them to share in our Sunday morning services, preaching, leading prayers, doing children's sermons, and whatever else seems appropriate. They will get to experience worship in a more traditional and more contemporary format. We will also look for them to participate in the establishment of our new Saturday night service. This will mean helping with decisions about format and music, and sharing in ways to publicize and advertise the new service. The student will also get to lead various aspects of that service as it gets started. Our student would also be invited to share in the worship of the new church start, Grace Community.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

Bethany Church has a long history of educating ministers. We have had several seminarians serve in the church, and all of them have received opportunities to preach and lead worship, join in mission activities, share with youth and kids, and start new ministries in the church. Pastor Paul Sangree has mentored several other seminarians, and looks forward to the chance to do so again.

Special Considerations

Our student will need a car to get to our site here at the church. While we are a UCC church, and would welcome a UCC student, our student does not need to be UCC.

Comments

We do look forward to providing a stipend of $1500/semester for our student.
