Memorial Day is here and summer unofficially begins.There will be lots of outdoor activities to take advantage of the coming warm days.
The Farmers Market opens on June 1. It’s always a treat for our Congregation and our whole town. It’s every Thursday on the front lawn of the church.
For the first time in my ministry we are not going to be having church in our church building or on the church grounds on a Sunday morning! We will be going “off-site” on Sunday, June 11th for our Children’s Day service. As many of you know, our Sunday School has been building a boat all year long, and we will be putting it in the water on that day! (It will be raffled off to help with our mission trip to St. Vincent.)
So please do not come to our church building on June 11th, but come to Hopkinton State Park where we will be gathering at 10 AM (unless it is raining, in which case we will have the service at the church.) Bring a beach chair if you wish to have a seat and some food if you wish to have a picnic after the service with the rest of us! The cost is $8 per car to get in. If you want to carpool with others, meet over at the church at 9:30 and we can carpool over together.
We will be commissioning those going on the St. Vincent mission trip, and doing baptisms and renewal of baptisms, and celebrating our kids! Joyspring and the choir will be leading us with guitars! It should be a very special day, so I hope you can join us!
Then the youth and congregation will head out to two week long mission trips: The St. Vincent/Hands Across the Sea trip to Haiti and our traditional work camp in Ohio. Our helping hands go out help those in need.
We will also have a booth at the town’s Block Party on Main Street on June 30th. Come help us introduce our church to our community.
