Back to Church Updates & More!

Hi everyone,  What a beautiful week!  Here are the things to have in mind as you plan your time over the next days.

Saturday afternoon at 1:00 is our first WISH gathering of the season.  All ladies are invited to an afternoon tea at the Thomas’ newly renovated and expanded kitchen.  Shannon & Rachel are hosting the afternoon and would love to see you!

BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY IS HERE and we are looking forward to a great day!

As we approach the last few days leading up to National Back to Church Sunday, let’s remember it’s not too late to invite someone to join us!  It is going to be a great day as we hear from the ladies of Teen Challenge Rhode Island, and enjoy a potluck meal together.  God calls each and every believer to share the good news of Christ. It is also the only way to ensure the great legacy of God’s love working in and through United Church of Norwood can continue for generations to come.  Here are a few more videos of inspiration and humor to encourage us as we reach out to our neighbors with the love of Christ.

We will plan to start lunch at about 11:30.  Thanks to everyone who signed-up to bring food to share at the pot-luck.  The gals from Teen Challenge will be having lunch with us.  That will be an additional 18 women, so please keep that in mind as you prepare your foods!

Just a reminder…the Teen Challenge ladies will have tables set-up in the Welcome Center to display the items that they sell to raise funds for the ministry.  In addition to the jewelry that they make, they also have their own coffee available this year.  There will be an offering plate available as we will be collecting a love offering for the Teen Challenge women.

Sunday evening is the final Meetinghouse Concert of this season.  The New Dove Brothers will begin the evening at 6:00 at Victory Church in Sharon.  Tickets are available at the door. If you have never attended, I encourage you to come on Sunday evening.  You will hear wonderful, uplifting, happy music!   As I have said before it is a great way to end the weekend and start the week ahead!

Monday evening at 7:00 is the next Church Council meeting.  Council members, please check your email for information from Barbara Sweeny.

We will continue collecting supplies for the triplets through the end of September.  Please leave your donations at the display in the Welcome Center.  Wipes, diapers and onesies are some items that are frequently used.  Thank you for welcoming these little ones!

Did you pick up the latest issue of the devotional,  Our Daily Bread?  Did you notice that the scripture is now printed with the daily thought?  Copies available on the Resource Tables.

We are so excited that Yuniya has taped her first message for Norwood Cable.  I will let you know when it will be aired – sometime next week.  And if you are not a Norwood resident, you can still watch Yuniya on  Please keep this new ministry in your prayers and for Yuniya as she shares God’s word.

The NEW Bible Study on “Abraham” will begin on Monday, October 10th at 7:00 at the parsonage.  More details to follow or speak to Pastor Kevin with any questions you have.

There will also be a new Women’s Study starting up soon!  Look for info in that in the coming weeks!

CELEBRATION!  Painting begins next week in Veno Hall and the kitchen.  Exciting to see some of these well-loved spaces getting spruced up!

I think that’s all I have for you  – tomorrow is another day so if I have missed anything, I will send along then 🙂
