North Shore religion news in brief

North Shore Unitarian Universalist Church in Danvers has made significant changes to its hearing-assistance system to improve accessibility for those with hearing losses. The improvements were made possible by a donation from the Unitarian Universalist Association, individual donations from church members, and fundraisers. The church will launch the new system at the service on Sunday, Sept. 8. The church service on Sunday, Sept. 29, will focus on raising awareness of hearing issues, and the offering collected will go to the hearing-assistance project. Visit nsuu.org for details. The church is at 323 Locust St. in Danvers.

The Christian Women’s Connection September brunch will be held Monday, Sept. 9, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Garden Terrace Room at the Danversport Yacht Club, 161 Elliott St., Route 62, Danvers. Eleanor Brake, the “Tag Sale Queen,” will share some of her yard-sale finds, including tips on finding the best bargains. For this month only, the yacht club will provide a luncheon in place of the usual brunch. Lunch is $13 inclusive, and free child care is available for children up to age 5. Reservations are required by Saturday, Sept. 7. For more information, to make a reservation, for childcare or to make a cancellation, call Jan at 978-532-1379 or 978-303-7873.

The title of Pastor Emeritus will be conferred on the Rev. Dr. Charles Gross on Sunday, Sept. 8, at the 10 a.m. worship service at Maple Street Congregational Church, 90 Maple St., Danvers. By vote of the board of deacons, the title is given to Gross for his 22 years of distinguished service as pastor. It is an honorary title indicating retirement from active ministry. Following the service, there will be an all-church potluck luncheon and an opportunity to greet Gross. Members and friends are welcome.

Sunday School will start at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 24 St. Peter St. in Salem, on Sunday, Sept. 15, at 9:50 a.m. The program is based on the interactive “Godly Play” format for children from ages 3 to 10. For information or to register, contact the parish office at 978-745-2291 or visit www.stpeterssalem.org.
