Easter Sunday Worship

We continue to gather remotely for worship to keep one another safe. Join us on Zoom at 10am on Easter Sunday, or view our worship service anytime on YouTube or Facebook.

Holy Week 2021 at United

This week, we enter into the stories of the final week of Jesus' life.  The pain and pathos of this week remind us that our experiences of suffering and struggle are not foreign to God -- a reminder that is important every year, and all the more so in the time in which we are living.  We will have several opportunities for worship and devotion available to you this week:

Holy Week Stations of the Cross:   "Stations of the Cross:  Pandemic Hope" was created by artist Mary Button to speak to our contemporary moment.  These stations of the cross lift up images and stories of hope, resilience, and relationship during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Each piece of art is coupled with poetry, prayer, and prompts for reflection.  The stations of the cross will be displayed at First Presbyterian Church, 704 Whitney Avenue, in the windows along the walkway between the sanctuary and parish house.  Please visit for an outdoor, self-guided, social-distancing-approved contemplative experience any time during Holy Week.  This program is co-sponsored by First Presbyterian Church, First & Summerfield UMC, United Church on the Green UCC, and the University Church in Yale.

Maundy Thursday:  Our service of anointing and tenebrae as available on our UCG YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as right here, for you to stream at your convenience.

Good Friday:  Our colleagues on the staff of the Southern New England Conference, UCC, have created a service of lament that places the traditional scripture texts of Jesus’ final words from the cross in conversation with those of seven Black Americans killed by police or extrajudicial actors. The service is available online.

Easter Sunday:  Our Easter service will be available to stream on our UCG YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as our website, and we will gather via Zoom on Sunday, April 4, at 10:00 am to experience the service and join in joyful worship together.
