Week of July 25, 2021

We welcome Robin Genetti, who will be leading our Sunday worship on July 25.  Some of you may remember her from last fall when she led Sunday worship in October.  Robin is a member and Lay Leader of the Waterville Union Church.  She resides in Waterville with her husband and works for the Lamoille North Supervisory Union.

Our August Sunday Communion mission donation is for “Welcome Home”.  We are assisting formally homeless members of the community as they transition to homes of their own.  We currently have ten individuals and families to help.  Anyone interested in helping may make a monetary donation or drop off any of the following new items:  Plastic shower liners, shower curtain rings, toilet brushes, laundry baskets, laundry detergent, clothes hangers, broom/dust pan combos, sponge mops, all-purpose cleaner, food storage bags, and kitchen garbage bags.  Drop off hours at FCC are:  Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 11 am.   Thank you. 

Note- last week’s July 18th, Sunday worship will be broadcast over the local public access channel 1079 today, Sunday, July 25th at 4 PM.

Pastor Jessica is on vacation through July 26.  Pastor Preston Fuller from St. Paul’s UMC will be providing emergency pastoral care coverage.  He may be reached by calling St. Paul’s at 802-524-5632 or calling our church office at 802-524-4555.

Bible Study is on Wednesdays at 7 PM.  Everyone is welcome to join our weekly on-line bible study. We use the Google Meet as our platform.  You do not need a Gmail or Google account. Please call the office to let Sue or Jessica know you are interested and Jessica will send you the link with instructions. 

Fall Concert Series: If all goes well, we will offer the fall concert series in the fall (with any recommended public health measures in place).  Artists are tentatively booked and will be publicly announced in the summer. Mark your calendars for the second Sunday of the month at 3pm: Sep 12, Oct 10, Nov 14 (and maybe Dec 12). 

Rides – We need your help.  Could you give a ride to a member or friend of FCC who would like to attend a Sunday service?  If you can, please let Sue or Jessica know. If you need a ride, please let us know and we’ll help make arrangements.
