De-Separating

Blessings to you all, This coming Sunday will be COMMUNION SUNDAY. The main text we will focus on is from Ezekiel chapter 37:1-14 – “The Valley of Dry Bones.” One of the operative questions is asked within the verses: “Can these bones live?” We will connect a bit with John 11:1-45 which is the story of the “Raising of Lazarus.” The message is: “De-Separating.” As it is Communion Sunday, the Deacons will be receiving a special offering in support of their ministry in our midst. Easter Lily orders will be taken this Sunday by Denise Martin. You may contact her directly at deniseray1@gmavt.net or call her at 453-3349. The lilies will decorate the church on Easter and you take them home

We All Have a Part to Play

Blessings to you all, Today has provided a mixed bag of weather – not much of it – good. If you are travelling – please take your time. The worship service this Sunday promises to be a mixed bag as well – but most of it – I hope and expect will be GOOD. The Gospel lesson from John (9:1-41) is the extended story of Jesus curing a blind man and the struggles some have with the change. The sermon is entitled: “You Have The Part!” Sounds like Good News – it could be. The flowers ordered in support of Hospice Volunteer Services are here and one can notice them – they are pretty and pretty aromatic. If you ordered flowers you can take them home with you following worship this Sunday. After w

Blessings to you all, Happy sunny – if not warm Friday There is a lot of good stuff going on this weekend. From 4-6 this afternoon Abigail is facilitating an ART time for teens and adults as we focus on the Pentecostal spirit of fire and wind in Acts 2. Tomorrow – Saturday – Jenny and two other very gifted musicians will offer a Baroque concert here in the sanctuary beginning at 4:00. Jenny will be playing her harpsichord. Two days from now – Sunday – we will gather for worship. The text for the day will be John 4:5-32. This is that wonderful passage of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well. The sermon title is: “Sustaining Jesus.” How do you read (interpret) that title? Is Jesus

Strangers in the Night

Blessings All, This Sunday we will have a guest minister leading worship here. We are providing a Neutral Pulpit to allow a local UCC church to experience a potential pastoral candidate for their church. Rev Rick King will lead worship. The text he will be focusing on is: John 3:1-17 with a sermon entitled: “Strangers in the Night.” OK – try to get that song out of your head – good luck. A NOTE TO PARENTS – It might be good to alert all of the children about the change for this Sunday as Rick will be doing the Children’s Message. Following worship and bit of coffee and some goodies anyone is invited to join in a discussion of Acts chapter 2. We will meet in the choir room in the Mans

A Weekend Together

Blessings Faith Family – Community of Christ Tomorrow (Saturday) we gather together to celebrate the life of Turtle Panton. The choir will gather at noon to prepare (voices are welcome). The service will be at 1:00 followed by a “Party” at the Legion (per Turtle’s request). He was multi-talented and one talent he practiced was the talent to party. On Sunday we will celebrate together Communion. If you wish to support the Deacons’ Fund – there will be special offering envelopes available. The scriptures for this Sunday will be Genesis 2:15-17 and 3:1-7 (portions of the second creation story) and the second text is our traditional text for the beginning of Lent – the Temptation of Jesus
