DIAPER DRIVE UPDATE — Topple the Tower! At this point we have a little over 1,600 diapers and $120.
Now, what you need to do is remember to grab one last pack of diapers at Hannafords this week. Larger sizes are desperately needed.
BUT…How will you remember?
OK. After you read this, get up and go to your grocery list and add diapers. Go ahead … Now is a good time!
Diaper Drive is over on Father’s Day.
IT’S OFFICIAL! Those members present at the special congregational meeting on 2/19 unanimously voted to call Pastor Char Corbett to be our next settled pastor. Pastor Char will be moving to Maine with her family in July to be with us. All who had the good fortune to meet her this weekend were delighted with her warmth and authenticity, her wonderful sense of humor, her enthusiasm and her full-to-the-brim faith. You can read about Pastor Char here. (link to PDF)
