Men’s Group 

The Men’s Group meets one Friday morning per month at Stacey St (usually the last Friday) at 7:30am for breakfast.  They also plan various hikes and activities throughout the year. There is a hike around Old Salem Green this Thursday starting at 9 from the nearby park parking lot.  Please contact Dave Hostetter at for more information and to get on the group’s email list.  Newcomers are always welcome.

Let’s Get Together!  

You will have seen this rather strange title in last week’s bulletin and if you were at church last Sunday, you will have seen the sign- ups for getting together with fellow Old North congregants.   Opportunities to enjoy each other’s company include babysitting swap, book club, biking, bridge, cribbage, cooking classes, dinner/supper club, field trips (museums/ art galleries/ gardens) green club, golf, hiking, jigsaw swap, kayaking, a Lenten progressive dinner, pickle ball, tennis, scrabble, walking and wine tasting.  The list of possibilities is endless and of course your own ideas are very welcome. Please contact Lynda Hare at 781 639 0107 or for further information or help in signing up for one of these activities. 

See No Stranger 

“The future is dark. What if this is not the darkness of the tomb – but the darkness of the womb? What if this is our greatest transition?”  ~ Valarie Kaur, See No Stanger

I first encountered Valarie Kaur through a TED talk, one of the most powerful and popular ones. On their website they write: “Valarie Kaur is a social justice activist, lawyer, filmmaker, innovator, mother and Sikh American thought leader who founded the Revolutionary Love Project — a movement that envisions a world where love is a public ethic.”  You can see the TED talk here

I next encountered her as a keynote speaker for our Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ and her words and insights were riveting and moving.  She would keynote again a couple years later at our United Church of Christ denomination’s national gathering. Her concept of ‘revolutionary love’ is captured in her book See No Stranger.  It is compelling, engaging, practical, and spiritual. 

In March we will do a 3-part book study and conversation on the lessons and insights of her book. The book study will be a ZOOM gathering so that you can join us from anywhere in your home or in the world. I hope you will read the book in the weeks ahead and join us.  Stay tuned for dates and times. - Don

Winter Parking at Old North Church
The Old North Church parking lot on Stacey St. is private property; parking or using the lot for landscaping or construction vehicles or other purposes without permission is not allowed. We do rent a limited number of spaces for the period of December 1, 2022-April 30, 2023 for $650 per space and still have a few spaces available.  We also have a limited number of snow emergency only passes for December 1, 2022-April 30 2023 for $200 per vehicle. The snow emergency only pass only allows for parking in the lot during declared Town of Marblehead Snow Emergencies; parking at other times during the winter months is prohibited and violators may be towed. Please note
that we do not allow single day/night pass parking for Town of Marblehead Snow Emergencies. For permitted overnight tenants, we may require that you move your car out of the lot on Sunday mornings, on Christmas Eve for worship services, and on a handful of dates when we have concerts or special church events. After a storm, we ask that you move your car out of the lot as soon as possible to allow our plowing contractor to clear the snow. If you would like more information, please contact the church office at 781-631-1244 or If your car is towed from the lot due to unauthorized parking, our towing contractor is Bill’s Towing in Salem.
