Two Centuries of Ministry in Saugus
October 22, 2016

The East Saugus United Methodist Church held a celebration of two centuries of ministry
to the community.  The program featured a commemorative worship service followed by
light refreshments in the church vestry.  All members of the community were invited to
join us as we remembered the role that the church has played in the past, and as we look
forward to a reinvigorated ministry as we move into our third century.
Although not formally organized until 1825, the East Saugus church traces its origins to the
efforts of pioneering Methodist preacher “Father” Edward T. Taylor, who began his ministry
in the Old Rock School House in East Saugus in 1815.  The current church building on the
corner of Chestnut and Winter Streets was dedicated in February 1855, an event for which
Taylor, best known for his work with Boston’s seafarers, made a joyful return to the town.

In addition to its role in the spiritual life of its members, the church has served as a center
for social life in the community.  Indeed, from the 1930’s to the 1960’s the church was known
as the East Saugus Community Church.  It hosted many May breakfasts, suppers, and other
events through the years.  The church fairs and cookie sales held by the women of the church
were widely anticipated.  It also hosted Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops for many years, and
has made its vestry available for use by numerous community organizations.

Perhaps the most remembered event in the church’s long history was the June 1946 storm
which caused the collapse of its 125-foot steeple whose clock could be seen for many miles,
even out to sea.  The congregation rallied to rebuild, which was not the first, nor the last time,
that the congregation came together to overcome what many might have considered
insurmountable obstacles to its continued existence.

From its earliest days, the church has been an active participant in the search for social justice. 
Its third minister, Rev. La Roy Sunderland, became an ardent advocate for the abolition of
slavery in the 1830’s, while more recently ministers have worked on causes such as the
campaign against domestic violence and the rights of the LGBT community.  Our members
have also been generous in supporting both the worldwide mission of the church and local
organizations including the Saugus Food Pantry, Saugus Public Library, and the Saugus Youth
and Recreation Department.

The program featured the return of some of our former pastors.  Historical items will be on
display, including a Bible that was presented to the church in memory of Joseph W. Pace,
who was killed during the Pearl Harbor Attack in 1941 and to whom the Saugus Public Library’s
Genealogy Room is dedicated, as well as a cookbook published by the ladies of the church in
1895 to raise funds for construction of our kitchen and Ladies Parlor wing.
