End of July Connection

Hello everyone,  Hope you are enjoying your day!   We want to mention a few things to keep in mind as you plan your days.

Do you know we have some very gifted people in our church family?  We do!!  As I become aware, I like to spread the word so that we can support each other.  We have 2 opportunities to indulge your sweet tooth!  The first is with Silpa.  I learned this morning that Silpa is at the Walpole Farmers Market on Saturdays through October 7th from 9-1.  Silpa is offering her cupcakes and cake slices for sale. The Farmer’s Market is off of Route 27 not too far from the Blessed Sacrament School.  Why not stop by?  The second reminder is that Rachel’s Cake & Confections page can be found on facebook.  We have all enjoyed Rachel’s desserts here at church and Rachel specializes in cakes and all things dessert.  Check out her FB page.  If you would prefer to indulge a different sense, be sure and stop by the Westwood Library in the next few days and see Cindy Rudolph’s artwork on display. Cindy’s beautiful work has been on display for the month of July, so you’ll have to hurry as this month is coming to a close.  Cindy is also teaching a Greeting Card Workshop on Wednesday, August 9th at Morrill Library here in Norwood.  Check out the bulletin boards for flyers with the details.  We are so blessed to have these ladies as part of our church family!

Did you know we have a church marketing group?  Did you know that they meet weekly?  Did you know you are welcome to be a part of this?  “Prepare for Harvest”  meets each Wednesday evening at 7:30 in the Council Room next to the office. Please keep this group in prayer as they strategize how to reach out to the Norwood community. Questions?  Speak to Silpa or Pastor Kevin

As we have been mentioning, new members will be welcomed into the church on August 13th. Perhaps  you are someone who has been active and attending here for a long time and yet, becoming an “official” church member slipped past you.  Don’t be embarrassed or uncomfortable – it is an easy and painless process 🙂  Speak to Pastor Kevin for more information.

Believe it or not we are gearing up for the re-opening of our Open Door meal ministry!  There will be a BIG cleaning of the kitchen on Wednesday, August 23rd at 10:00am.  There is lots to be done so all extra hands are needed.  Start thinking and praying now about how you might be more involved with this ministry.  We are now the only meal ministry offering dinners on Wednesday evenings.  We will be needing additional help in a variety of ways – donations of food for meals, baked desserts etc.  There will be more details in the coming weeks, but perhaps you can give this some thought and see how you can help out.

Sunday worship begins at 10:00!  Wonderful music, raising our prayers and praises, uplifting message and Kids Connection are all ready!  We just need you – plan now to be here!  Coffee time follows in the fellowship hall.  Don’t forget to stop and sign up to help out at coffee time.  Look for the sign-up sheets on the snack table.

The Islam Study will not meet on Monday evening.  Our next meeting will be Monday, August 7th at 7:00.
