Post-Valentines Connection!

Hi everyone,  Hope you are having a good day!  We’ve had a little bit of everything this week, but I hear rumors of 50 degrees on Sunday!  On to SPRING! Here are the things to keep in mind over the next days and weeks.


Saturday morning at 9:00 is the annual waffle breakfast at our WISH Gathering.  All ladies are invited!  We will be enjoying breakfast together and then hearing from the director of BLOOM which is the new home for young girls in the Teen Challenge program.  We have a long history of support with Teen Challenge in Providence and we are looking forward to learning more about the BLOOM program.  If you regularly attend WISH, please check your email for updates from Cindy!  We would love to see some new faces so if you would like to enjoy a morning out with a great breakfast, come by Veno Hall around 9:00. And ladies, feel free to bring a friend!


As Pastor mentioned last Sunday, he will be away this Sunday and Sharon will be preaching.  Our worship service begins at 10:00am and I hope to see you there.  I have a preview of Sharon’s message and I think it is going to be a great message that will be an encouragement for all of us.  Please try and be here!  Support Pastor Kevin in his absence by coming to church and supporting Sharon!  Kids Connection and Nursery are in place.  Coffee time follows in Veno Hall.


Our annual Family Date Time will take place this Sunday February 19th.  We’ll meet for lunch at the Papa Gino’s in the Walpole Mall.  From there there’s fun for all ages in the mall via the arcade, play area, and sweet treats in the Barnes & Noble Cafe.  This is a great time for families to have their own special group date in honor of Valentine’s Day, to kick off school vacation week! Please RSVP to Meg’s email ( by the end of the night on Friday so we know who to expect! 


Our next Under 40 Discussion Group will meet Feb. 26 after church in the Nursery so parents can attend with their little ones! The experiment worked fairly well this past week, so with some minor tweaks, we’ll be trying again! 

Just a reminder about winter weather considerations: 
If there are any schedule changes, it will be communicated on WCVB channel 5, Facebook, email, and with a voice message recording if you call the church office.  If Norwood Public Schools are closed for weather on a Wednesday, the Open Door meal is canceled. 

You don’t have to worry about missing out on getting spiritually fed! Don’t forget that everyone at UCN can have access to thousands of Christian Bible Study, conference sessions, youth and kids material to warm your heart in the cold through our Right Now Media subscription! If you need help activating your account, Meg is more than glad to help (


Moms & Tots will get together on February 23rd at 11:00am at Meg’s home in Foxboro.  Please speak to Meg if you have any questions.


Also, from time to time I like to remind everyone that we have a CARE Team and a caring Pastor who like to be aware of any one in the congregation who is ill or having a difficult time in any way.  We certainly try to be respectful of privacy but if there is something you feel the Pastor or office should be aware of, please be in touch.  We assure you that all matters will be kept confidential.  Thanks for your help with this matter.

Serving on Sunday:
Greeter:  Steve Carter
Ushers:  Russ & Donna Wood
Kids: Marie, Meg,Roger, Janna
Coffeetime:  Please consider coming by early to help set up, bringing a treat to share, or staying after for set-up! 

That is all for now – see you Sunday!  And ladies – see you at the breakfast 🙂
