MINISTRIES

We're all about loving our community,
both inside and beyond the church walls,
with our time, talents, and service.

COMMUNITY GROUPS

group2

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.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

‘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.

Nursery

As we navigate the pandemic, we’ve chosen to invite parents to keep their children up to age 4 with them in the sanctuary. We love the little ones, and love having this opportunity to involve them in corporate worship. (And please, don’t worry about them making noise – we all understand! But if you do feel like you need to take your little one out, feel free to use the sitting room off the foyer as a place to regroup.)

Catechism Class

The kids in our elementary class (grades K 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 every Sunday after the musical worship. 

YOUTH MINISTRY

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. They get to participate in special events, such as hiking, bowling, game/movie nights, and more!   

PRAYER MINISTRY

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 meetings. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the sanctuary.

Come to worship, and if you’re comfortable, join us in prayer for our church, the global Church, and our work in the Kingdom of God.

OUTREACH MINISTRY

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.

Covid may try to keep us from some of the typical outreach activities we’re used to doing, but the needs are greater than ever, and it is so important for us to be creative in making sure people are cared for outside the walls of Fellowship. 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. 

Eliot-Starr House

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 Thursday10 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 Thursday10 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.

4:00 pm – 6:30 pm (1st or 2nd weekend in December) Shattuck Shelter, Jamaica Plain
