Pentecost Weekend Connection

Hello everyone,  hope you are having a good day and enjoying the sun!  We have had quite a bit of rain which is evidenced by mowing our lawns quite regularly this year!   But how good to be blessed with green grass, budding trees and colorful flowers.   Here are the things to have in mind as you plan your time:

Sunday worship is at 10:00 in the sanctuary.  Great music from both our choir and the congregation, a time for your prayers and praises, timely message from Pastor Kevin and Kids Connection for the little ones.  Following worship, we have 2 important events happening in Veno Hall.

The first is…

Renovation Celebration!  Recognizing the work done in Veno Hall through generous donations given in memory of Pastor Bill.  Painting, windows, shades, bulletin boards – lots of things to brighten the space!

The second is… also during coffee time,  an informational conversation regarding our affiliating with the Evangelical Free Church of America.  http://www.efca.org/ (this is the EFCA site) or http://www.efcneda.org/ (this is the EFCA site specifically for the New England district)  will help you connect!  Check out that site and come prepared to ask questions, share your thoughts and  add some helpful comments to our discussion!

In light of these 2 things happening, we expect to have more folks than usual in attendance.  To that end, it would be wonderful to have some special snacks for this special day!  There will be 2 tables set-up to accommodate the additional foods that we hope you will be bringing!

Young Life happens on Monday evening at 7:27 on the top floor. Young Life will also meet on June 12th before ending for the season.

Ladies, if you have unfinished projects you need to complete, mark your calendar for June 10th for a time to work on them. Veno Hall will be available for you to spread out and work on your UFO’s (UnFinished Objects 🙂 for the day.

Moms & Tots will meet on Saturday, June 10th at 9:30 at Meg’s home in Foxboro.  This will be great viewing for the Foxboro Founder’s Day parade.

Looking ahead:  June 11th will be the vote regarding affiliation with EFCA.  A quorum of 25 people is required for this meeting.

 June 11th is also Family Sunday where we will be honoring our children and our high school graduates.  More details to follow!

What do Muslims actually believe?  What are Sunni and Shia and Sufi?  Is Islam a “religion of peace?”  What are the roots of Islamic fundamentalism?  And most importantly, what do we as Christians need to know about Islam in order to effectively present the gospel of Jesus Christ to a Muslim? These questions and more will be discussed and answered at a Summer and early Fall study that begins on Monday July 10th at 7 pm.  We will be meeting at the church in the council room (1st floor near the church office) for seven individual one hour sessions.  The sessions will be held approximately every other week through July, August and September.  There is a student workbook/guide that was written by Dr. Timothy Tennent.  Tennent is an evangelical who teaches at Asbury Theological Seminary.  See you there!  Pastor Kevin

Ever wonder about the daily life of our Compassion Child, Kevin?  Here is an opportunity that you might want to consider.  The  Compassion experience let’s people walk through a day in the life of a child in struggling parts of the world.  See Meg for details and check out this link.   https://cts.compassion.com/events/724
