Weekly News for May 16, 2018

Saturday will be a full day as we remember and honor Richard Brobst at a memorial service at 1pm with a reception following.

This is important for the Brobst family and for all of us in the church family. Recognizing that it will be a very full emotional day for all of us, we are postponing the all-church talent to a later date.

WANTED: Bakers and Helpers
I am looking for folks who can bake for, and/or help out with baking and serving for the Brobst reception on Saturday, May 19. Please contact Kathy Whittier at 254-7509 or kwhit119@yahoo.com.

Church Council meeting next Thursday May 17th 6:00 pm.

Pentecost Sunday, May 20 Readers
Do you read a different language other than English? And would you be willing to be part of our Pentecost reading in many languages? next Sunday May 20th. If yes please let Rev Nancy know. Languages that come to mind are French, German,
Greek, Latin, Spanish, Polish, others? A printed copy of same will be sent to you and then you will stand in your pew on Sunday and all will read simultaneously in different languages just like the first Pentecost.

Kitchen Cleaning
For those folks who feel like you missed an opportunity to “tidy up ” the church last Sat, (conflict with Town Meeting ), fear not. Our well used kitchen is in dire need of a very thorough cleaning. When you have to pry your hand off a drawer knob you know we need to do something. If 5 or 6 people can spend a couple of hours on a Sat Morning we can whip that place in ship shape in no time. Late May or early June would be a good time to do this so watch for specific time and date. Jeanne
