A combined adult attendance approaching 250 meets in two worship services each Sunday, with a higher number of individuals (estimated at about 400-450) actively involved in the church. Located on the South Shore, in the town of Easton (about 20 miles southwest of Boston), The Fellowship has had only two pastors in its 40-year history. Our current Senior Pastor of 23 years has announced his retirement; thus, our search process is underway. As we anticipate the next stage of our church’s life under new pastoral leadership, we are also taking this opportunity to take an in depth look at our strengths, our challenges, and our areas of opportunity. To that end, we have invited The Malphurs Group to walk with us through this process.
