On Sunday, April 5 at 10 am ~ EASTER SUNDAY. Rev. Abigail Stockman will present “Sweet Freedom.”
This Sunday is Easter, as well as the second day of Passover, and still in the early days of spring. Threads of freedom run through all three events and inform our liberal understanding of freedom. Our service this morning will include a maple syrup communion created by Rev. Charles Stephens who served our neighboring church, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Concord NH, during the 1990’s. Bonnets are always welcome if you are so inspired!
Following the service, we will have our annual Easter Egg Roll, and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Todd Workman would like to show us what he’s doing with this building and share info on some of his other thoughts/projects on how downtown Franklin might be ‘revitalized’. Toad Hall is going to be, among other things, a gallery offering up-cycled and recycled art work. Stephanie Van Horn is one of the local artisans whose work will be featured. Please come and check it out. You are welcome to bring friends along as well. Hope to see you there!
On Sunday, February 15 at 10 am Rev. Brendan Hadash will present a sermon. From Rev. Hadash: “Yesterday was Valentine’s Day. The Unitarian Universalist Association has declared February as Standing on the Side of Love month. Every week you say, ‘Love is the Spirit of our Faith’. The very first sermon I ever wrote was about love. How could I not speak about love today?”
On Sunday, February 22 at 10 am Rev. Abigail Stockman will present “Human Being – Human Doing.” A look at growing into reflective action, sometimes used as a definition of spiritual maturity. Come join with us.
