Covenant Renewal: #IamASCBoston
Sunday ~ 12:30 pm, Parish Hall
We are - every one of us! - the people of the beloved community at Arlington Street. Once a year, we renew our covenant of love and service with one another, and the world. This year's theme is #IamASC! Today, and for the entire month of April, our own Christa Lamb will be in the photo booth to snap your head shot for our #IamASC social media campaign. We'll also be filling in the blanks on ASC "Mad Libs" to share a little bit more about who we are. Come on by after the service and be part of the fun!
Arlington Street Circle of Caring
Sunday ~ 12:30 pm, Frothingham Library
Are you battling illness, caring for someone who is ill, struggling with isolation or in the process of losing someone you love? Or have you already lost someone, and are you trying to cope with the heartbreak and anger that accompany loss and grief? If you are currently struggling, or have experienced this or any other type of life crisis and would like to share how you made it through, then please join the Caring Circle.

Social Action Committee's Winter Clothing Drive
Sunday - May 3rd
Why we are collecting winter apparel now that it's finally Spring? We're hoping that many of you and your neighbors will be disposing of unwanted winter items that can be put to good use. We plan to store cold weather clothing now for next winter, to distribute to people who are homeless. Please help us prevent cold weather injuries, such as frostbite and hypothermia, in a population that faces exposure to the elements on a daily basis. Donations may be dropped off today at the social action table, or during the week at the church office. Thank you!

The Arlington Street public transit station re-opened in June 2009 and now provides handicapped access from the transit station to street level via elevators and/or a ramp. A separate part of the MBTA project created a wheelchair ramp leading from street level on Boylston Street to the church office door.
Handicapped access to the Sanctuary on Arlington Street is provided by a ramp on Arlington Street which leads to an entrance to the Sanctuary.
During worship services, and other special events, FM amplification headsets can be provided upon request. Braille hymnals are also available for Sunday services, as well as a large print version of the hymnal and each week’s order of service. Please ask an usher for assistance.
Arlington Street Church has a wheelchair accessible restroom immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary.
Join us for worship this Sunday! The Sermon by Intern Minister Joanna Lubkin is "Great Expectations."

Welcome to Arlington Street Church, gathered in love and service for justice and peace. We're so glad you found us! Unitarian Universalists believe that personal experience, conscience, and reason are the final authorities in religion. Instead of subscribing to a single religious creed or doctrine, we keep an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places, and we honor a diversity of answers. Join us! All are welcome!
