Mission


Welcome...
We believe that no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We believe that Jesus’ ministry was about welcoming and accepting all, including the unlovable and marginalized in his day, and so with him as our guide we welcome all with open hearts and open arms.

Worship…
We are a community of spiritual seekers from diverse backgrounds and faith traditions who gather for worship and teaching. Through scripture, prayer, praise, preaching, and song we seek to be transformed into new and faithful people, God’s people. Our desire to learn and grow doesn’t end with worship so we engage in other opportunities for spiritual growth.

Witness…
We are a Christ-Centered church. We worship God as our Creator, Jesus as our Redeemer and the Holy Spirit as our Sustainer. We seek to live out and witness the lessons and teachings of Jesus Christ as we reach out and care for others in love. We believe it is our duty as compassionate Christians to share the good news of God’s unconditional love and transforming power. We do this through the many individual and collective missions and ministries of North Congregational Church.

MEET OUR INTERIM SABBATICAL MINISTER
REV. DR. DIRKJE LEGERSTEE

We extend a warm ‘Welcome Home’ to the Rev. Dr. Dirkje Legerstee who will serve as our Interim Sabbatical Minister while Rev. Patty is away.  Rev.  Dirkje was born in the Netherlands.  Dirkje was her grandmother’s name and is pronounced Dirk-Ya.  In 1980, she discerned a call to the ministry and left teaching to attend Andover Newton Theological School.  Ordained in 1985, she has served local churches in the Mass. Conference in a variety of roles including Senior Minister, Associate Minister, Intentional Interim and Workshop Facilitator.  Dr. Legerstee returned to A.N.T.S. and graduated with her Doctorate of Ministry in 2007, receiving the Henry C. Brooks Award for Excellence in Pastoral Theology and Pastoral Counseling.  Her passion is the transformative power of play on God’s playground or the holy field of possibility.  She currently serves as an adjunct professor, co-teaching ‘The Healing Power of Joy, Celebration and a More Playful Life’.  Dirkje is a graduate of the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation in Washington, D.C., and is an InterPlay leader and maker of art currently working on writing her parents’ story of surviving WWII.  She Lives in Westford, MA, with her husband Stephen, a Geomatic Scientist and environmentalist.


Rev. Patty will be on Sabbatical from May 6th until September 6th.

Rev. Patty and her daughter Lucy will be heading out on the Camino de Santiago in Spain for their journey and will later be joined in Europe by the rest of the family.  The remainder of this sabbatical time will be spent on the Cape and also with extended family in Nevada.

One of the most important aspects of this sabbatical time is the respect and care that we show Rev. Patty and her family while they are away.  It is important that we remember not to contact them via phone, email, text, face book or other forms of communication.
