Summer 2014

Rev. Ivy Merrill, Pastor

          We're already well into summer!  We've sung the hymns of freedom and celebrated the Fourth.  The Blue Door Free Lunch Program is finishing up its fourth week with a good number of kids and families in attendance.  But there's more to come!

          On Sunday, July 20, we'll have our monthly Congregational Gathering and Potluck.  Following the meal, we will consider a covenant with Ivy to provide pastoral services through October. The Micah Circle will also report on their investigations into the future of the church building.  We hope you'll want to be a part of the process.
On July 27, LynnWickberg, our seminarian, will  lead worship while Ivy takes a Sunday to attend her home church in Keene.

          August begins with Communion Sunday on August 3.  The Micah Circle will meet on August 10 and the Congregational Meeting on August 17 will be held, following the service, at Donna and Richard Anderson's.  The month ends as we gather at the home of Roberta and Franklin Geist for the summer outdoor service, followed by a potluck lunch.

          So enjoy your summer, your friends, your family and join us for worship and fellowship at Christ's Church!
