We're all about loving our community,
both inside and beyond the church walls,
with our time, talents, and service.
As much as we enjoy Sunday services, we also love the intimacy of smaller settings. That’s why we make it a point to meet in small groups every week to unwind, share our victories and failures, and support one another.
Many of us have come to appreciate the value of community in this way and have grown in relationship with each other and with God. We’d love for you to experience that, too!
You’ll find that our weekly meetups are part social gathering, part Bible study, and part prayer meeting—with food, friendship, and fun thrown in! Just ask any of our group leaders; we doubt they’ll disagree.

‘Jesus loves the little children.’ So do we.
Kids are not an afterthought at Fellowship. We see them as an integral part of our community. And so we do what we can to show them the love of God and support them in the earliest stages of their life journey.
Our children’s ministry serves kids of all ages, right from babies to 5th graders, providing them opportunities to increase in their love for Jesus, to expand their knowledge of the Scriptures, to mature both in their faith and in their life, and to learn to serve people wherever they are.
Our nursery is a boon for parents with babies and toddlers up to 2 years. A team of loving volunteers will play with and care for your child, leaving you free to fully engage with the sermon. Just bring your child to the nursery after the musical worship ends, and we’ll take care of the rest!
Storytelling, puppets, games, and music are what’s in store for kids in our DiscipleLand class (age 3 to grade 1), which meets every Sunday after the musical worship. Through these fun activities, your kids will learn that they are loved by God and valued by His church.
The kids in our upper elementary class (grades 2 to 5) learn the deeper truths of God through the New City Catechism app; they also learn to pray for and with one another. This class meets on the second and third Sundays of each month after the musical worship. On the remaining Sundays, they remain in the adult worship service to listen to the sermon.
Every Friday night during the school year, the enthusiastic Fellowship Kids! group (age 4 to grade 5) come out in full force to sing high-energy songs, play games, and get creative together! In the process, they learn about God and how to build their lives on the solid foundation of His truth.
The teenage years can be a challenging time. We’ve all been there. That’s why we want to make this period as smooth as possible for our youth, as they follow Jesus and grow in their knowledge of Him.
We try to do that by creating a welcoming space for teens of all ages to come together and just be themselves. Apart from regular meetings, they get to participate in special events, such as hiking, bowling, game/movie nights, fishing/camping, beach trips, concerts, and more!
Our Wednesday-night meetings for high school students (grades 9 to 12) provide them a break from their usual routines and a chance to refresh themselves with God’s Word. But there’s much more to these meetings than Bible study.
Friendship and fun are also very important, so a whole lot of relational activities are woven in, such as board games, icebreakers, and card games. Through this mix of activities, our teens learn how to engage with God as well as with each other in a way that they can relate to.
Prayer (a two-way conversation between God and us) is not just a big part of all that we do – it is in fact our foundation. We cannot function properly for any length of time without being in communication with the One Who gives us life and breath. In addition to incorporating it in all our services and encouraging everyone to make it as much a part of their day to day existence as eating and breathing, we intentionally take time to learn about prayer and put it into practice together during our monthly prayer meeting. We usually meet in the evening on the third Sunday of the month.
Come with your prayer needs, and be ready to pray and listen together for others in our church and the larger community as well as for our nation.
We also host an annual fall prayer conference where we invite speakers from outside to come and minister to us. These conferences are open to all, so you are most welcome to attend.
Loving the community we live in is best expressed through serving beyond the church walls. At Fellowship, there are numerous ways by which you can serve the needs of those around us.
Check out our outreach ministries, see what aligns with your passion, and help us spread the love of Jesus to the town of Dedham and beyond.
Do you want to sow into the lives of children entering the foster care system? Our donation drive for the kids at the Eliot-Starr transitional home in Dedham is the perfect opportunity to do so. You can help by donating clothing, toys, and supplies for the kids.
Please drop off your donations at the church during Sunday service or a scheduled event. You can also contact the church office to schedule a time during office hours (Monday to Thursday, 10 am – 6 pm) to drop off your donation.

Dedham Food Pantry
For the poor and the homeless on the streets of Dedham, even a single meal matters a lot. You can be the one providing that meal and making a difference in their lives! All you need to do is help us support the Dedham Food Pantry by donating non-perishable foods.
We collect donations on an ongoing basis, so you can drop them off at the church during any regularly scheduled service or event. Alternatively, you can contact the church office to arrange a time during office hours (Monday to Thursday, 10 am – 6 pm).

Shattuck Shelter Christmas Dinner
There’s nothing like a hearty holiday dinner and cheerful banter to lift your spirits. Join us in sharing the joy and love of Christmas with the fine gentlemen at the Shattuck Shelter in Jamaica Plain. This annual event, which usually takes place during either the first or second weekend of December, has touched many lives over the years by providing a delicious holiday meal, warm conversation, and some simple gifts for many who otherwise would be alone and empty.
Trunk or Treat
This annual event provides many opportunities both for kids and adults.
For the kids, it’s a safe, fun place to come and participate in favorite Halloween-themed activities, from face-painting to crafting to bouncy houses to balloon animals, and, of course, lots of candy!
For adults and older kids, it’s a great way to get in on some Halloween fun and serve the community at the same time. Register your vehicle, decorate it with a fun theme and hand out candy to all the kids, or contact us to find out what other opportunities there are to volunteer.
We hope you’ll save the date and come with your family for a fun (and FREE) afternoon of games, crafts, face painting, and lots of candy! We also have a great raffle and food for sale, with all the proceeds going to the Eliot-Starr House.
