Welcome to Church on the Hill!
Sometimes getting through the church door is the hardest part. Here's some information to make it all seem more possible.
What times are your worship services?
Church on the Hill worships at 4:00 pm on Sunday afternoons.
How do I get there? Where do I park?
Church on the Hill’s meetinghouse is located at 169 Main Street, Lenox, MA. We have a small parking area, and you can also find parking on Greenwood Street just to our south.
What happens during worship?
An usher will greet you the narthex, just inside the door. You'll get a bulletin to guide you through the service. All our services feature scripture, preaching, prayer, and music. At times, you will be asked to stand, sing, pray, greet your neighbor, be in silence, or read responsively.
Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month, and at special services like Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday. Our communion table is open to everyone—baptized or not, confessed or not, sure or not, saint or sinner or a little of both.
At our services we maintain the ancient Christian practice of receiving an offering to support the church’s ministries. We welcome your gifts and encourage everyone to live a life marked by generosity. If you are unable to give financially, please consider an offering of time or talent to the church, another organization, or a neighbor in need.
What should I wear?
Be yourself. Come as you are. You'll find people their in their "Sunday best." You'll find others dress more casually. So you decide.
How long do services last?
Worship services typically last an hour to an hour-and-a-quarter.
Is there a coffee hour or fellowship time after church?
Yes! After each worship service, there's a spread in the narthex that members plan and offer. Now that we're worshipping in the early evening, you'll find less coffee and more lemonade, and sometimes even a glass of wine, waiting for you as you like.
Is the church handicap accessible?
Yes, but we aim to make it even more so. Though our 1805 building was apparently designed for hardy New Englanders who never aged or had knee trouble, we have added a ramp to the west side of the meetinghouse to welcome those of us who use walkers and wheelchairs.
