Calendar of Upcoming Church Activities, Summer 2014

The Ladies Aid extends an invitation to and will welcome any ladies who would like to join our team.

Monday, September 1st, Annual Reports due to Cheryl Olson ( )

Sunday,  September 7, COMMUNION SUNDAY: It is our custom to observe the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first
Sunday of each month as well as at other times appointed by the Pastor and Deacons. On those Sundays we also welcome the
offerings of canned goods which we collect for the Cape Ann Food Pantry. They are received in the barrel placed at the rear of
the sanctuary. Also, an offering plate is placed on the table at the rear of the sanctuary on those Sundays in which we welcome
monetary contributions for the Deacons' Fund. This fund is used by the Deacons to meet special needs in the community and its
recipients are held in confidence and are known only to the Deacons.

Sunday, September 7th, Deacons Meeting following worship at 11:30 a.m.

Monday, September 8th, Church Council meeting, 6:00 p.m.

Wednesday, September 10th, Ladies Aid meeting, 10:00 a.m.

Thursday, September 18th, Pot Luck Supper at 6:00 p.m., ANNUAL MEETING at 7:00 p.m.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:  Anyone who may be interested in serving as an usher or greeter or as a lay reader during
worship services or any person willing to provide light refreshments following a worship service is invited to sign up on one of
the lists provided downstairs in the Vestry.  These are great opportunities to take an active part in our corporate fellowship
without making a long-term commitment.  If you would like to receive an email notification concerning upcoming church-related
activities, there are sign-up sheets on a clipboard at the rear of the Sanctuary or you may email your request to Janice Lufkin
Shea at

Ministry Opportunity:  Coffee hour is an important part of our Sunday experience as we share in a time of fellowship and a
deepening of our relationships. It would be great if we had someone in charge of coordinating sign ups, a hostess perhaps.  Don’
t want to coordinate but want to help, please sign up for a Sunday in fellowship hall. It doesn't need to be an elaborate breakfast,
just a few treats and coffee. Not sure what it is all about? Please speak to Rev. Mike. This is an important ministry and we would
like to see it continue.
