Mission for October - Campus Ministry Across NHCUCC
In October we will participate in a special offering benefitting the United Campus Ministries of Keene State College, Plymouth State University and the University of New Hampshire. Campus ministry provides our college students with safe spaces to build community. These ministries nurture thoughtfully spiritual young people who are committed to social justice, community service and living their faith.
New Structure Training on October 19
Next Sunday, Rev. David Jadlocki will be with us in worship to train us on ways to live into our new structure and share his experiences of this in his church. Please plan to stay after church with us.
Volunteer Fair for Opportunities in our New Structure Oct. 19
We need your help so are also holding a Volunteer Fair on October 19 after church. You can see the many opportunities to do ministry. When you sign up you are not committing yourself to anything, but indicating your interest in a ministry. Different ministries will be organized by worship, education, mission, finances, facilities, and community building. Look for some surprises throughout the morning!
NH Conference Annual Meeting Delegates needed
Our church is entitled to 2 delegates to the NH Conference Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 25. If connecting with the larger church, worshipping, and meeting the UCC President interests you, we would love you to represent us. Contact Gayle if you are interested.
Wicked FIT Run on October 25
We are looking to form a team who will walk or run in the Wicked FIT Run on October 25. This is a fun 5 kilometer road race where people wear costumes and raise money for Families in Transition. It is held at Rollins Park in Concord. There is a sign up sheet on the table outside of Fellowship Hall.
Creating an Evergreen Arrangement
Flower arranger Meg McGoldrick has agreed to come on Sunday, October 26 at 4:00 pm to demonstrate how to create long-lasting evergreen arrangements. If you wish to make one or more arrangements for our December Greens Fair, please put this date on your calendar! Meg is great at this and will help rev up our creative energies during the hour we spend learning from her. This year, we will create our arrangements at the end of November in Fellowship Hall. If you have any questions please call Jo Chase at 942-8940.
Upcoming Mission Trip in November
The Mission Committee is inviting you to go on a Mission Weekend in November. We will gather for dinner together Friday evening, participate in various projects, worship with our host church, and be home for dinner on Sunday evening. Details of costs and the projects will come soon. If you are interested, there is a sign-up sheet on the table outside of Fellowship Hall.
Christmas Fair is Saturday, December 6
Our Fair needs at least two individuals to oversee two important areas of our Fair this year: the Bake Sale and the Soup Luncheon. Also, the Greens Table is in need of decorative containers to make arrangements in, as well as used oasis - the green Styrofoam that absorbs water. Donations may be left in the box marked “Christmas Fair” in Fellowship Hall. If you would like to volunteer or can help in any way, please contact Faith Levesque, Christmas Fair Coordinator at 608-1121.
Have a great week everyone!! ~ Mona
