Community Dinners

Food serving pans

We invite our neighbors from Burlington and surrounding towns to a community building venture —our second free monthly community dinner, Wednesday, May 25th, 5:30 to 7:00 pm. There will be no presentations or planned activities. We just want to create a welcoming space for people of any or no particular religious faith to share a meal and build stronger connections with neighbors. Meals are free – no donations of food or money are expected. A choice of chicken or vegetarian stir-fry with rice and deserts is on the upcoming menu. Dinner will be served continuously from 5:30 through 7:00 pm. To protect vulnerable participants, attendees are asked to wear face masks in the building except when eating and drinking. We plan to host free community dinners on the last Wednesday of every month. Use the button below to volunteer to help with set-up, cooking, serving, clean-up, etc.

Walk for Hunger

The annual Walk for Hunger was held virtually this year on 01 May. However, you can still donate to the Burlington People Helping People team. Donations will help get food relief to kids and families across Massachusetts; 60% of the funds raised will support People Helping People and the Burlington Food Pantry. Learn more and donate at the link below:

Food Drive

Our First-Saturday-of-the-Month food drive for the Burlington Food Pantry that would normally be scheduled for 07 May 2022 is cancelled because the food pantry will be moving in May from St. Mark’s church to a new site off Cambridge street.

Burlington POWIR

Burlington POWIR stands for Partners Organized to Welcome Immigrants and Refugees. Spearheaded by St. Veronica Parish, the group works with Burlington civic and religious organizations to locate housing for Afghan refugees, assisting them in establishing a home and navigating a new life in Burlington. BPC is partnering with POWIR to contribute $800 for one month’s rent for an Afghan refugee. You can donate by check with POWIR in the memo line, or by using the “DONATE” button on our webpage, with a notation for POWIR or “Afghan Refugees.”

We Affirm …

Black Lives Matter

Racism victimizes many people but has a unique impact on African Americans. Given the forms anti-Black racism has taken historically and currently, we state clearly: GOD LOVES BLACKNESS. This truth has been denied by too many for too long. We align with love and not hate; we reject racism and proclaim that God delights in Black lives.

Jesus Calls Us

Jesus calls us to care for creation.

This 3‑minute video encourages creation care, amidst climate change. We can make a difference and answer the call of Matthew 25 to care for the least of these. Learn more about our call to act as earth’s caretakers:

Singing the
Matthew 25 Vision

Our congregation accepted the invitation of Matthew 25:31-46 to be the hands and feet of Jesus, serving people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned or poor. That vision is set to music in the hymn, “Jesus Be With Us,” with text and tune by the Rev. Dr. David Gambrell, PCUSA Office of Theology and Worship, with singing and music arrangement by Phillip Morgan, Central Presbyterian Church, Louisville, KY.

The author/composer and arranger/performer grant permission for use of the hymn and recording in worship, online or otherwise. For other uses, please consult the copyright holders.

Land
Acknowledgement

Map of ancestral native American lands in Massachusetts

We acknowledge that the Presbyterian Church in Burlington resides on ancestral and unceded lands of the Mattakeeset and Massachusett people (whose name was appropriated by this Commonwealth) made up of peoples including the Nipmuc, Pawtucket, and Wampanoag. We pay respect to the Massachusett elders past and present. We acknowledge, and are called to reckon with, the truth of the history of violence perpetrated by settlers and colonists against indigenous peoples. We commit to uncovering that truth and seeking reconciliation.

I am the church!
You are the church!
We are the church together!
