  Worship Excerpt

Being in our initial stage of living into community together, Agape has services twice a month.  Join us for Agape Service "Childlike Faith" at  5:00pm Sunday, January 27th at 50 Church St, Waltham.  Our hope with services, as with common life at Agape, is that you bring your entire self- mind, heart, body, and spirit!

Kids are welcome at Agape dinner church & services!  Our services are intentionally intergenerationally friendly for kids.  Several adults are present during services to supervise preschool and elementary school youth in doing art and other faith formation projects.  Children are welcome to participate as much as they desire or are able to in the services themselves.  Each service has a "Children's Moment" for kids :)          


Agape Service: "Childlike Faith"
Sunday, January 27th at 5pm
50 Church St., Waltham
With special guest Rev. Dr. Sandras Barnes
The Reverend Dr. Sandras M. Barnes walks by faith and believes her life experiences have prepared her for this moment and time. With quiet confidence, stillness, patience, and courage she waits upon the LORD to direct her path as an educator, activist, and theologian. 
Her topic is Childlike Faith: Some children will trust in God until they are given reasons to not trust. Some children are given reasons to not trust very early in life but their faith in God is not shaken.
