Hello, Hope you are enjoying your week! Here are some things to keep in mind over the next several days:
Sunday morning begins with a time of prayer at 8:30 in the Welcome Center. I know Sundays are very busy and we are often pulled in many directions, but if you are able, come by and spend some time in prayer prior to worship. Spending time with God will certainly prepare your heart for worship!
Worship begins at 10:00 in the sanctuary. Wonderful music, a time for prayers and thanks to God and a great message from Pastor Kevin. Communion will also be offered this Sunday. Kids Connection and Nursery care is provided.
On Communion Sundays, our Helping Hands offering is received. Those funds are used at Pastor’s discretion to assist those in our church and community with financial needs. Look for the envelope in your bulletin if you would like to contribute.
The Church Council and the Building Stewards will meet following worship on Sunday. Please pick up your coffee and snack and meet in the Welcome Center at about 11:15.
The Annual Young Life Yard Sale is today and tomorrow at the Baptist Church Carriage House at 71 Bond Street. Fridays hours are 6:30-8:30pm and the Saturday hours are 8:30am-3:00pm. All kinds of treasures can be found! Household goods, toys, sporting goods etc. All proceeds benefit camp scholarships for Young Life kids. Come by and support this great effort!
Young Life meets on Monday evening at 7:27pm – all high-schoolers are welcome!
Marion Rich requests are due in the office on Thursday, June 9th.
Saturday, June 11th Voice of the Martyrs Conference – see the bulletin board near Nahatan Street for all the details. The conference is not really local – Auburn, MA – but if you are in that area or would like to travel there, I am sure it would be well worth your time!. We have had several people attend this in years past. The conference runs from 9am-4pm.
Also on June 11th from 10am-3pm “Art in the Park” on the Common at the “Gazebo” across from the church. I suspect our very own Cindy Rudolph will have some of her work available. Always a great day – drop by if you have some time.
Sunday June 12 is Children’s Day and our All-Church Picnic! Please see the sign up sheet in Veno Hall and let us know if you are coming and…what food you can bring to share. And if you are not able to bring something – no problem at all – just come and enjoy lunch and conversation with your friends here!
As I mentioned June 12th is Children’s Day. Our kids will be active participants in worship that day! Meg encourages all the kids to be here this Sunday so that they can practice their songs and be sure of all that is happening. It is a busy time of year and if the kids cannot be here this Sunday, please be here at 9:15 on the 12th. Please be in touch with Meg if you have any questions.
Norwood Day! As Pastor mentioned last week, we are looking for an enthusiastic group of people committed to making Norwood Day a great day! We have a perfect location and the sky is the limit so if you are interested in being a part of this opportunity, speak to Pastor Kevin. Pastor has been in touch with the town already about our participation.
