Site Description

North Congregational Church United Church of Christ is a vibrant and growing congregation. We have 150 active members, a church school of 50 students and a growing music program. We are located about 45 minutes south of Boston (near the intersection of routes 495 and 24). The church is set in a rural area that truly reflects the beauty of New England. We have recently completed a visioning process and discerned a new vision and mission for our future. Our new Vision statement reads: "Guided by the light of Christ we offer unconditional welcome, transforming worship, and compassionate witness." This is an exciting time to be apart of our church as we are beginning to integrate this new vision into all aspects of our life and ministry. We have also embraced the United Church of Christ's, "God is Still Speaking" campaign and see this as consistent with the values and commitments outlined in our new Vision and Mission Statement. We welcome all students interested in being part of this growing, vibrant and discerning spiritual community to contact us.

Stipend Expectation

Student Involvement

We believe that a field education setting ought to offer a student a vast array of opportunities for ministry and growth. We therefore are committed to offering students ample opportunities to preach, lead worship, and stretch in any other areas they seek to gain experience and grow, including (though not limited to) working in our children's and youth ministries, our many outreach ministries, and our adult spiritual formation programs. Students are encouraged to create a learning plan that offers them opportunities to fine tune their gifts as well as work on their growing edges. The supervisor and TPC will work with a student to create a learning experience that best meets the needs of that student.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

North Congregational Church has been actively involved in helping train students for ministry for over five years. Members articulate that this important ministry has been one of the most rewarding in the churches recent history. The Teaching Parish Committee is caring and committed to creating a safe and nurturing environment for the student. The sites supervisor has over a decades experience in supervision and is fully engaged and committed to the student's learning process.

Special Considerations

Given our setting, a car is necessary to fulfill field education requirements. That said we are conveniently located by both the Bridgewater and Lakeville stops on the commuter line. Our first floor and sanctuary are handicapped accessible. We use the New Century Hymnal though often include contemporary praise music and spirituals within our worship experiences.
