Church on the Hill.
On August 9, following our outdoor worship, the congregation voted to move ahead with Master Planning and Financial Development with the aim of liturgical renewal and historic preservation as regards the meetinghouse and the chapel.

WHAT TO EXPECT
What's the most confusing thing about Church on the Hill?
We have two buildings. We have the meetinghouse, which is indeed at the top of the hill in Lenox, and we have a chapel, which is down the hill in the village. Often when there are meetings happening "at the Church on the Hill" what's meant is that the meeting will be at the chapel of the Church on the Hill, or even more confusingly in the parlor (or office or fellowship hall) of the chapel of the Church on the Hill. So always ask to clarify!
How do I get there?
The meetinghouse, where we meet for worship on Sundays, is at the top of the hill on the north end of the village of Lenox, on Main Street, which is also Route 7A--number 169.
The chapel (and therefore the church and pastor's offices) are down the hill, in the village--the little brown building next to Lilac Park, 55 Main Street.
Where do I park?
Our parking lot surrounds the meetinghouse. We are looking to expand it. Meanwhile, anywhere there's pavement you're welcome to park.
For the chapel and offices, we rely on street parking.
What about children?
Children are welcome in worship. If they're young and would rather play, we have childcare available and plenty of toys for keeping young minds busy.
What should I wear?
Whatever you're comfortable in.
Is the building handicap-accessible?
To a degree. We have a handicap ramp on the northwest side of the building and a parking space right there. It isn't ideal, and we are working to improve things.
What's the liturgy like?
Though we are "low church" Protestants, we do adhere to a regular liturgy, which tends to include three hymns, two scripture readings, a recited Psalm, the Lord's Prayer. On the 1st Sunday of each month, we gather around the Lord's Table for Communion.
33rd ANNUAL CRAFT FAIR
Canceled due to COVID
UCC DAILY DEVOTIONAL

We regret that we are canceling the Craft Fair this year. We will miss all our loyal crafters, whom we appreciate as much in this absence as ever we have.
Please stay well, all. And let's hope that next year will be doubly joyful.
