Whether one approaches by land or sea, the landmark steeple of the church marks the center of this
coastal community twenty miles north of Boston. Over the past two hundred years, the steeple itself has
come to symbolize to both the membership, and the community at large, the commitment of the First Baptist
Church to providing religious and civic leadership through Christian service to those in need and advocacy
Inspired by the engaging and entertaining book by Frederick Buechner, each Sunday we’ll be introduced to lesser known and sometimes quirky biblical characters. The book lists 125 of the Bible’s most holy and profane people – and one whale. Over the course of the summer your pastoral team will choose from this rich list of Biblical characters and, with the congregation, unpack the lessons these lesser known characters have to share. In the hands of Buechner (a profound theologian and witty writer) we’ll share in a wonderful and lively journey!
A limited number of books are available for you to follow along this summer. Books are on sale at a discounted price of $10 after worship or from the office.
