Rev. Paul Hackett,


Reflection · Encouragement · Support


We are the Church Alive,
Christ’s presence on this earth
We give God’s Spirit body in
The act of our new birth.
As yielded open channels
For God’s descending dove,
We shout and sing, With joy we bring
God’s all-inclusive love.

Hymn By: Jack Hoggatt and David Pelletier, 1980, for the Metropolitan Community Churches


Starting with Palm Sunday we’ve been signing this great hymn and I plan on us singing it until our last Sunday together as Church of the Savior UCC.


The words remind us that no matter where we physically meet or come together and no matter where we end up or what we eventually look like, still we are the Church alive!


— Pastor Paul

Sunday, May 20, 2018
11 AM

After an extended time of assessment and prayerful consideration, the members of Church of the Savior have decided the church will close and cease to be a worshipping community.

We invite you to join us on Sunday, May 20, at 11 AM for a special “SERVICE OF CELEBRATION” to honor the ministry and life of Church of the Savior. We will worship together and picnic after on the grounds.

We celebrate the lives that were touched and the witness of the Gospel that Church of the Savior has been for over three decades.

The service will be led by Rev. Paul Hackett, Pastor, with Rev. Heather Fosburgh Bardole, Associate Conference Minister for the UCC Southeast Conference, assisting. Music will be provided by pianist Laura Mustari and vocalist David Bates, as well as congregational singing.

We choose to close gracefully and close strong by preserving a legacy that will be passed on to others doing God’s work, including congregations who are renewing or new church and ministry starts.

Join us as we look back with gratitude and celebration.


Please note that going forward we only meet for Worship Gathering at 100 Prospect Place on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. For the month of April we will meet April 1 and April 15.

On the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of each month we will be worshiping as a group with other area churches in the hopes of finding a new church home. We will announce each location in advance and hope everyone will join us.
