Resources at Cliftondale Congregational Church in Saugus


Church Library Resources

The church library is a great place to access a variety of resources that will stimulate your mind and spirit. Our collection includes books, study guides, teaching materials, CDs, DVDs, and more. Feel free to stop by and borrow one of these from the library.


Individuals have expressed interest in exploring the doctrines of Christianity in a structured way, and to discuss how they might grow spiritually. Some churches call this “Spiritual Direction”. Our Pastor is happy to meet with those who would like to learn more about the path of discipleship, utilizing an excellent book by R.C. Sproul, Essential Teachings of the Christian Faith. This is both a class and an opportunity for individuals to reflect on their own faith-journey…where they’ve been and where they hope to be in the pilgrimage that is the Christian life.


From time-to-time our church has conducted seminars on a variety of topics. These are usually on Saturday mornings and are open to the public. In the past we’ve presented topics to include: suicide prevention, how to pray, emotional intelligence,

Premarital Preparation

In order to get a driver’s license, one must attend drivers’ education; to get a marriage license no training is necessary…yet marriage is a much tougher skill! Seeing our responsibility to couples, our church provides an in-depth premarital curriculum that covers a variety of issues, to include: communication, financial matters, unconditional love, expectations, conflict resolution, sexual intimacy, differences/compatibility and spiritual growth. We deal with the “what ifs” that many couples fail to consider before saying “I do.” An extensive syllabus is provided, “Preventive Maintenance”. See the Pastor or church office for a copy of our

church wedding policy and application.

Joshua 1 | You Can’t Get There From Here

You can't get there from here” - Joshua 1, Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts (10 Jan 2016)

Mainers like to say when giving directions, “You can't get there from here”...or more accurately, “You can't get they-ahh from hee-yahh.” The children of Israel must have thought that, journeying through the wilderness to the promised land. It had been a long, grueling journey. Someone ... Read More
