our ministry team

Welcome! Every Sunday, we resoundingly proclaim that we are a community of OPEN DOORS and GROWING FAITH. 


No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

"The gifts God gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for work of ministry..." Ephesians 4:11-12

MEET OUR MINISTRY TEAM

  • Reverend Elaine Gaetani  

    Pastor of Spiritual Development

    Serving as the Associate Pastor since Thanksgiving 2005, I am especially interested in helping people develop their faith life, deepen their spiritual life and to also call forth the God-given gifts of each person. With a background in teaching, pastoral counseling, spirituality, retreat leadership and direction it is deeply satisfying to watch God’s people grow in wholeness, faith and service through the Holy Spirit. We offer adult education, small group ministries, retreats and mission that seek to do just this. Come and see that God is so Good!

  • Wendy Reardon   

    Director of Children's and Youth Ministries

    I believe that all people have God’s love, spirit, compassion and power within themselves. A light that we each carry. That light needs to be discovered and nurtured, fueled and exercised! That is what I believe Christian education is, an opportunity to discover who you are and why you are. Sunday morning Faith Formation classes and Youth Groups meetings are opportunities to learn and grow in our faith and most importantly to act upon our beliefs and passions, empowering our youth to transform the world, making it the place God intended.

  • Sue Menzel  

    Director of Bell Choirs

    When I moved to Westboro in 1977, I was looking to reconnect with a Congregational church. From my first visit I have felt welcomed and accepted as a child of God. Over the years I have been involved in the musical life of the church through singing and directing all ages of Handbell choirs. In addition I have enjoyed many of the opportunities offered, such as a variety of committees, retreats, bookstudies and social events. To paraphrase one my favorite sayings, "A week without Sunday Worship is like a week without the light of Jesus".

  • Pete Graham  

    Pastoral Associate

    In 2013, my family found our church home at The Congregational Church of Westborough. It was immediately obvious to us that this church sincerely lives its mission of being a welcoming community. It was in this nurturing environment of loving friendships and spiritual growth that I heard and accepted my call into ministry, a decision that I had wrestled with for some time. I am now currently enrolled at Andover Newton Theological School and plan to seek ordination through the United Church of Christ. My family and I are so grateful to our church family for their encouragement, prayer, and support. 

Our commitment to being followers of Jesus' path and caring for our community, our children and our world 

has created a special, welcoming church experience.


As we enter our third century of faith and service to the greater Westborough, Hopkinton, Grafton and MetroWest area, we are excited by all the growth and energy we see every day, and we invite you to experience it for yourself.
