Sermon Series:  Generosity and Gratitude

Generosity is gratitude in action.  When you have been the recipient of someone's generosity, your gratitude overflows.  When you yourself are generous, you will be surprised by how gratitude unfolds.  This month, we will explore generosity and gratitude in our worship services.

October 8:      Biblical Generosity – scripture is filled with God's generosity.  We will hear the good news of the ways in which God generously gives to us.

October 15:    Abundance and Gratitude – we often miss the abundance in our lives.  We will look at all the true wealth in our lives and discover how much we have to be grateful for.

October 22:    Generosity:  Gratitude in Action – grateful people have a way of becoming generous themselves.  We will hear a story of one person putting in motion a huge amount of generosity.

Underwood Hills Church Worships Joyfully

Underwood Hills Church gathers Sunday mornings to joyfully worship God, our Creator.  We praise God with a variety of music, a time with children and the message delivered in a variety of ways.  Our worship services engage the senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.  Music permeates the worship service.  Some Sundays, the scripture passage is read in the form of readers' theater.  Other Sundays, we might burn written prayers as an offering to God.  (Yes, fire in the sanctuary!)  You might take home a rock, a shell or a glass marble as a reminder to you of the gospel message from that Sunday morning.  Some Sundays, visual images will convey a message.   

We believe that Christ is present to us in bread and wine.  We celebrate The Lord's Supper on the first and third Sundays of the month.  This celebration brings us together around the table as friends in Christ.

Please join us in praising God on Sunday mornings!

Annually, Underwood Hills participates in an Interfaith Thanksgiving service along with First United Methodist Church, Temple Israel, St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, First Christian Church, Hanscom Park United Methodist Church and members of the Muslim community.  Jews, Christians and Muslims share together in giving thanks for the bounty we enjoy.  The service is filled with music, including a choir of singers from participating congregations, and the blowing of the ram's horn.
