Quarterly Congregational Meeting - Sunday at 10:30am
As a part of our new church structure, these meetings are important. There is much to report to you, a couple of things requiring a vote, and a chance to ask questions. A quorum is needed.
Holly Tomilson - Ecclesiastical Council is Sunday
Holly Tomilson will have her Ecclesiastical Council Sunday at 2:30pm at the Congregational Church of Chester. Holly has led a study and worship here and this is one of the last steps leading to her ordination. Holly will present her ordination paper containing her understanding of God, the Church, and our denomination. Questions are asked by clergy and church members and then a vote is taken to ordain her. Attending this is a great way to support Holly and see this very special process work. We will meet at the church at 1:45pm to carpool together.
World Day of Prayer
Church Women United will hold their annual World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 6 at 1:00pm. The service is being hosted by St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. This year’s service was written by the women from the Bahamas and will focus on Jesus’ saying, “Do You Understand What I Have Done for You?”
Shovelers are Needed
In order to keep the church clear after every snowstorm, we need people to sign up to shovel for a week. Anytime it snows during that week, we ask you to shovel the walkways and front porch. Plowing and sanding are done by someone else. Sometimes you won’t need to shovel at all; other times, you do!
Bad Weather Policy
We know it snows on Sundays, as this year we have more than enough snow. When it is snowing, we will try to have a service if we feel it is at all possible. We want to be there for those who will travel through the snow to go to church. But no matter if we have church or not, if you are not comfortable traveling, please stay home and be safe. The decision to cancel church will be announced on Channel 9 and on our telephone answering machine. We will also send out an email to everyone on our email list, which will include something to think and pray about based on what we would have done in Worship.
Only 3 weeks until Spring!
