WORSHIP SUNDAYS 10AM

CONNECTING PEOPLE TO JESUS, FRIENDS AND COMMUNITY

Welcome. Plan your visit.

ConnectingPoint is a gospel-centered community church that lives and breathes people and is not limited to the four walls of our building. Our space is open for you to learn more about Jesus — no matter where you are in your spiritual journey. We are devoted to loving God, loving others and sharing Jesus with our family and neighbors.

We are located at 72 Jefferson Street, Marlborough, MA (2nd floor. Enter at the three-story brick tower.). Click here for directions.

10am WORSHIP
Our weekly rhythm of being together as a larger community to worship and receive grace, to engage Scripture and pray together, to celebrate communion every Sunday, and to be sent back into the city with a blessing every week.

Our worship service is participatory meaning that we sing together, pray together, hear God's Word together, receive Christ's body and blood in the Lord's Supper. We sing for about 25 minutes and then children experience a kids message and are invited to Kids Church for about 30 minutes. Adults stay in our sanctuary where we preach through the Bible with the focus on Jesus Christ. Our 25-30 minutes of preaching is Biblical, grounded and relevant to your everyday life. Our worship service is about 70 minutes.

AFTER WORSHIP CAFE
Coffee, snacks, meet someone new and make friends.

our way home sermon series

It's the most famous prayer in the world. Chances are you've either prayed it before or heard it prayed at a funeral, wedding or church service. Starting Easter Sunday we're on an incredible journey through each petition of the Lord's Prayer. You will discover the profound depths of this most famous prayer. You'll learn the heart of the Savior is to bring you home.

Adults receive a book. Kids receive a balloon. We all receive God's grace. 

Join us for an awesome worship service as we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Kids Church


Children in 5th grade and below

Kids Church sessions meet about half way through our worship service. Our worship service starts with a time of prayer and praise before a 3-minute children's message. The pastor or youth worker teaches a children's message. Then children in 5th grade and below can participate in 30-minutes of age-appropriate teaching led by adults, meanwhile adults stay in the sanctuary for about 30-minutes of practical, Biblical preaching and teaching. 

This year's stories focus on Jesus' life, beginning with the birth of John the Baptist and continuing into His earthly ministry. Each lesson contains a riveting story and emphasizes an applicable truth for children. Stories include Jesus' birth, childhood, baptism, and temptation. In other lessons, students will meet people Jesus loved such as Nicodemus, Simon the Pharisee, and the woman at the well. Each lesson is supplemented with biblical references, teaching resources, and creative ideas.

Our Kids Church teachers for 2016-17 are Adam Y., Tracie D., and Amy S.

Environment. We do extensive background checks on our volunteers to ensure that your children are safe and cared for. Volunteers experience on-going training on teaching children and receive feedback and encouragement through reviews.
