Almost April Connection!

Hi everyone, So it doesn’t sound like “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb” is going to apply this year!  Stay safe and warm and wait for Red Sox Opening Day next week 🙂  In the meantime, please keep these things in mind.

Sunday worship begins at 10:00.  A wonderful time to put aside the cares of the week and find some rest and encouragement in worshipping together.  Uplifting music, encouraging message from Pastor Kevin and a time for prayers and praises.  Volunteers are in place for Kids Connection and Nursery Care.  Please note that Communion will not be offered this Sunday, April 2nd.  Communion will be served at our Maundy Thursday service on April 9th.

As Pastor mentioned last Sunday, we are having an Easter Sunrise service (April 16th) at 6:30am at the gazebo across from the church on the town common.  This will be followed by breakfast here at the church at 7:15am.  We hope you will want to be a part of this tremendous outreach to our friends and neighbors here in Norwood.  Please see the sign-up sheets on the table as you enter the sanctuary!  Join in and be a part of this time as we celebrate the empty tomb and our risen Lord.  We will also have our Easter Celebration worship service at the regular 10:00am time on Easter.

There will be 2 other opportunities during Holy Week.  A Maundy Thursday service at 7:00pm on April 13th and a time for Prayer and Reflection on Good Friday, April 14th from 6:00-7:00pm in the sanctuary.    It’s important to remember the days and events that lead up to Easter.  Please plan now to come to one or both of these services.

Young Life Capernaum is Young Life’s ministry to teens with disabilities, and it will be sponsoring its annual Talent Night here at the church Saturday April 8th. The goal is to raise money for the camp scholarship fund for teens with disabilities and their high school peer mentors/buddies to go to summer camp in Virginia. Tickets are $5.  This is a fun night where our typical Young Life High School teens, Capernaum teens, Wyld Life Middle Schoolers, and Young Life leaders all come together for a great celebration, it would be great to see our church well represented as a host location!

“Facing Darkness”, the movie is being shown tonight in Braintree and Framingham locations at 7:00pm  Facing Darkness – In Select Cinemas March 30 & April 10

We are very excited to once again be hosting Meetinghouse Concerts!  Please be sure and check out the bulletin board in the Welcome Center for all the details.  The first concert will be on Sunday, April 23rd at 6:00pm featuring The Dixie Echoes.  Experience the joy of these evenings and be blessed by the wonderful message and harmonies of these groups!

I know you are all familiar with our Faith Seeds ministry.  A word of CONGRATULATIONS  to Deb Eagles who has just completed correcting and commenting on her 500th lesson for Faith Seeds!  W O W!    Deb has done an outstanding job offering support and encouragement for these incarcerated women.  Deb also volunteered to send the certificates of completion to the women who have successfully completed an entire study.  Great job!

There will be an insert in your bulletin on Sunday if you are interested in contributing a plant for Easter Sunday.  Cost is $12.00 – details on the insert.

We are looking for  gently used adult backpacks for our Blessing Bags ministry, they can be dropped off in the Ruth Room on the lower level of the church.  These bags are filled with supplies and given to women in transitional housing situations.  This is a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Christ in a practical way!
