 Lasagna Luncheons 

Federated Church invites you to our Community Meals, a no-cost Lasagna Luncheon, every Sunday, beginning January 5th through March 29th , from 12:30 – 2:00 pm in our Parish House, 45 South Summer Street, Edgartown. The meal consists of a salad, a serving of lasagna, garlic bread, beverage, and something for dessert. A great opportunity to get out of the house and have a great meal, make some new friends, or perhaps you haven’t had a hot meal in a while, please join us. In the event of snow, if the roads are closed, so are we. Free. All welcome. For more information call 508-627-4421; email


 Houses of Grace 

For the fifth year in a row, Federated Church will serve as a House of Grace, and will offer overnight shelter each Monday and Thursday evenings, as well as a dinner and breakfast. Check in at 7 pm; leave at 7:00 am the next morning. If your electricity is off because of a storm, or if your electricity has been shut off for non-payment, if you feel threatened in your home, if you are temporarily homeless, or are permanently homeless, you are invited to stay at our house.


 Bible Study - The Acts 

Our Bible Study of the Book of Acts will resume weekly meetings at the Federated Church Parish House on Wednesday, January 15th, from 7 - 8:30 pm and running for the next six weeks. Even if you didn't participate in the first half of the study, you're invited to jump in for the second half. Just let Stoddard Lane-Reticker know ( or 1-860-202-7636), so he can order a Study Guide for you. In our first gathering of the new year, we will discuss the material in Chapter 7 of the Study Guide.
