April 21, 2019 Easter
Easter flowersMany people welcomed Easter morning, probably the most important feast day of the Christian calendar, on April 21. The flowers on the altar were lovely! Thank you so much to everyone who ordered them: they enhanced the worship service with their beauty and fragrance.

On Maundy Thursday, also called Holy Thursday, we had a service of Tenebrae commemorating the last three days of Jesus' life, in the church house before feasting on clam chowder, bread, and crackers, culminating in celebrating Holy Communion.

March 23 Sunday School spaghetti supper
2019 Pasta Supper Crew The Sunday School presented a fantastic pasta dinner on March 23 - along with spaghetti, lasagna was offered, as well as a salad bar and rolls. A beverage came with the dinner, which was followed by a brownie sundae. Delicious! Many people came out to eat, who donated to the Sunday School. The money will go toward Church World Service Kits, as well as to children’s charities

March-April Church World Service kits

This year, the Church World Service kits, the little packages of comfort and hope delivered to those caught in natural or man-made disasters, were organized and packaged by the Sunday School, coupled with contributions from members and friends of the church.

Completed were 51 school kits, 50 hygiene kits, and four clean-up buckets. The estimated value of the kits is almost $10,000, representing a huge contribution!

They will be shipped to the CWS warehouse in Maryland where they will be delivered whenever and wherever they are needed. The kits were dedicated April 14.

Kits ready for shipping
Hats off to everyone who helped!
