Tracing our church’s Peabody roots

The Northshore UU Church represents a coming-together of four Unitarian and Universalist churches, two in Danvers and two in Peabody. Our bronze bell, for instance, is from the Park Street Church in Peabody.

This Sunday, March 28, Barbara Doucette, a historian from the Peabody Historical Society, will trace our church roots back to their earliest days in Peabody in a talk titled “Roots of the Danvers Church.” Here is our brief guide to the history of the Northshore UU Church.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Child care and religious-education classes are offered, and visitors are always welcome.

Following the service, from noon to 1:30 p.m., the Social Action Committee will sponsor a discussion about ethical eating, a follow-up to the Reverend Frieda Gillespie’s sermon of March 21. A light lunch will be served and child care will be available.

For more information, please see the committee’s notice in the March issue of the church newsletter.
