Clara Barton District

The Clara Barton District consists of 64 congregations and geographically includes central and western Massachusetts and all but the far southwest corner of Connecticut.

On July 1, 2010, Clara Barton and Massachusetts Bay Districts began a staff sharing arrangement that is being tried over a two-year interim period. Given geographic proximity of the two districts and a collective desire to share program capacity, we are hopeful that this arrangement will allow us to serve our congregations better. Under this arrangement, each district provides both general and targeted abilities to meet congregational needs.  On July 1, 2014, Ballou Channing entered into partnership with the two districts, and Northern New England District plans to join in 2015.
