THIS WEEK

 August 12th through August 25th

(This is a Two Week “This Week”)

 

Message from the Pastor

This is a special two week edition of This Week.  Lorraine will be on vacation this week so no church office hours and no This Week next week (that’s always fun to say)!  If you need access to the church during the next week or have other office type questions, please notice my office hours.  I do check my church email when not in the office and I can always be reached on my cell phone.

We’ve been blessed with THE best weather on the first two Sundays we’ve held worship at Ed and Betsey Bennett’s home at Cabot Farm.  So far predictions for this Sunday look promising as well.  Attendance at these wonderful outdoor services has been higher than our indoor services this summer so please join us both this Sunday, August 12 and the last Sunday, August 26 at “The Farm”. 

 Back on Memorial Day week-end, our Deacons led you in a hymn sing in place of a spoken sermon.  So many folks indicated that they enjoyed it so much we should do it more often.  So the Deacons decided that we would now conduct a quarterly hymn sing.  So, on August 22, the Sunday we are back in Emerson Hall, wedged between our two outdoor services, we will enjoy sharing the faith with one another by picking hymns.  Your choice, of course.  So, be thinking of what hymn you’d like to sing/share with others and feel free to share a brief (I did say brief) story about why you chose that hymn.  You can pick hymns from either hymnal or if your favorite isn’t in the red or black hymnal, just get it to me via email or phone call and I’ll try to have it printed off for that service.  I have access to lots of old hymnals (plus the wonder of the Internet) so do, indeed, feel free to suggest a hymn that you would like to sing but if it’s not in our hymnals, get it to me by the middle of the week.                                                                                              

So just to recap here’s the rest of August’s schedule.  Please keep it in mind, tack on your refrigerator or put in your smart phone or wherever necessary in order to join each other for worship wherever we are:

 

This Sunday, At “The Farm” (unless it rains, of course, then we will be at the church)

Next Sunday, August 22nd:  HYMN SING!  Come prepared or let me know your favorites

Last August Sunday, the 29th:  Last outdoor service, weather permitting.

See you at worship wherever we are!

Rev. Joe
