We join with the congregation and pastoral leadership of Bethel AME, Lynn for a joint service hosted at Bethel AME, Lynn at 10:00am, at 72 Silsbee St Lynn, MA 01901 .

If you are interested in Carpooling over to Bethel, please be in the First Church parking lot no later than 9:45 as that is the time we shall depart. If you wish to remain at First Church for the service, the sanctuary will be open and will broadcast the service from Bethel AME, Lynn on the TVs via zoom.

Bethel AME, Lynn is Not handicap accessible. As seen in the image above, there are about 8 steps up to the entrance door. Also, please note that restrooms are accessible only on the lower level after descending about 20 steps. If this may pose an issue for you, you are welcome to join the service on zoom or in person at the First Church in Swampscott Sanctuary.

Tuesday nights at 7:30

Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the library
