Our Style

 Carter is a diverse community of faith grounded in scripture, experience, tradition and reason.  Sunday services are in our Needham sanctuary at 9:30am. Services are live-streamed via ZOOM and social media. Our service is a blend of both traditional and contemporary worship styles that we hope you find uplifting, fulfilling, and comfortable!  To get a preview of what worshiping with us is like, click here to view an example of a recent service.

Worship with Children

Carter welcomes young families and the energy they bring to the life of our church! Children are always welcome to stay with you during the service, but we also provide childcare for children under the age of 3 and under. Kids between the ages of 3 through Middle School are also welcome attend our Sunday School, which starts around 10 minutes into the service after the Children’s Sermon.
