Services incorporate a wide variety of traditional and contemporary liturgies and forms, featuring instrumental and choral music coordinated by our talented Music Director, Dr. Randy McGee; it is also our tradition to offer refreshments and conversation in the Beal House parish fellowship hall following each service.
Our experienced professional Director of Religious Education, Dr. Kate Sullivan, a psychologist with special expertise in child development, works with well-qualified and trained staff volunteers to provide guidance to youth activities and small group programs like Spirit Play for children in the Beal House. Quality nursery care for infants and toddlers is always provided concurrent with worship services (10:15-11:45 am.)
Sample special programs: various Youth Groups; several Women’s Spirituality focus groups, two Wednesday morning and evening crafting groups; two Men’s Groups; and various Spiritual, Seeker, and Covenant Group opportunities from time to time. Ongoing Social Action activities and sponsorships for justice programs in local, national, and international contexts are also important elements for the congregation’s mission focus.
Many significant community activities are also co-sponsored and/or housed at the Beal House Sampson Hall facility on a regular basis: The South Shore Folk Music Club (nearly 40 years of concerts and coffeehouse performances with us), Kingston Library speakers and monthly “Locavore” programs,several Girl Scout troops, and six different weekly twelve-step groups.
Sunday parking is available in two large lots adjacent to the Beal House directly across from the sanctuary at 222 Main Street, as well as a dozen spaces of on-street parking on the west side of Green Street (on the Town Green) and ADA-accessible parking and ramp on the north side of Main Street immediately adjacent to the church.
Please be our guest at any of our services!
In faith and hope-
(The Reverend) Dan King, Senior Minister
