​​Interim Pastor Search Committee

​​​​​We are looking at profiles and interviewing Interim Pastors to call to our church but we have not yet found the right person. But the good news is that Rev. Jenn Macy will lead worship services from November through Christmas. Rev. Macy was here in August when Rev. Martha was on vacation. Please let the members of the committee know if you have any questions. We are: Barbara Davis, Susan Dunn, Terri Leander, Linda Anderson, & Brenton Spencer. May God bless us all on this new spiritual journey.


Healthy Students - Healthy Saugus Public

This outreach to Saugus school students has been met with great enthusiasm by the town. Bags of donated groceries & supplies are filled on Thursdays by willing churches and given to students on Friday afternoons to take home for the weekend.  This free program is offered to students who receive free or reduced-cost meals at school. 


Our church rebuilding project is almost complete

Steve DiChiarra & crew worked hard on rebuilding the damage sustained in the church fire last December.  The shed was sided as well as the southern exterior church wall. First & second floor windows were replaced. The storage shed has been cleaned out so that all the Christmas decorations can be put away in there.  Some trees in back will be removed and security cameras will be installed. We’ve been waiting almost a year for this project to be completed & we are grateful that it is almost done.
