Events, Recent and Upcoming

Intergenerational Worship and First-Day School Picnic

Sunday, June 10, 2018 For the first 30 minutes of meeting we will be having an interactive inter-generational worship, and at 11:30 the children will leave to get ready for the religious education end-of-year picnic. Please join us for this potluck picnic at rise of meeting! (This is business-meeting day so we will enjoy the potluck as a community for an hour or so before business meeting.)

Children's Religious Ed will provide the protein (veggie and meat) and a surprise dessert (!), and we invite the community to bring other lunch items to supplement. We suggest if your last name is between A-L please bring a salad (veggies or fruit is also good), M-R a side dish, and S-Z chips or a drink.

Anyone who can come early to meeting (say, 10:30am) would be welcomed to help us set up tables and chairs in the lawn (weather permitting), and if you can stay late to clean up and put things away that would be great as well!

Contact Abby Matchette, Clerk of Children's Religious Education, if you have any questions.
