Weekly News for March 27

A Message from Friends
Janet, Harland and I have officially moved to our permanent residence in Topsham, ME as of March 13th. Our address is 21 Amethyst Dr, Topsham, 04086. Therefore we have moved our membership to the UCC in Brunswick. I must say we will miss everyone and everything about NYUCC! A SPECIAL PLACE with very SPECIAL PEOPLE doing the work of Christ INDEED!!
BE WELL, Janet Grinis, Roger Nadeau and Harland Nadeau

New Computer for the Office
With many thanks to Gary Davis and Chris Dahlgren, we now have a new computer in the office. They went out and purchased it for us and began the setup. The old one gave us 9 faithful years and was ready to go. With that said, I have not figured out how to get everything I need back. i.e., I can’t update the online calendar or use Word and the computer is not talking to the printer. I am sure there is more that I will discover as I go to do something. I will be working on those issues tomorrow. How will I be printing the bulletin and the Newsletter? I don’t know at this point, but if I get stuck here First Parish will let me print there. I will get everything up and running as soon as possible. Thank you, Lyn

Food Pantry Volunteers needed
Are you interested in helping at the Cumberland/North Yarmouth Food Pantry? A fun, social time helping others shop for food. The job would include helping people shop. The ability to stand for two hours and carry bags weighing up to 15 lbs is needed. Confidentiality is a must, too

A two hour commitment on the 2nd Friday of the month. Shifts are from 2:45 to 4:30 and from 4:30 to 6:00. Be a volunteer or back up when someone can’t make it.

More questions, ask Tracy at 207-233-3655 or tdahlgren1140@gmail.com or any Missions Committee Member.

Grief Support Group
The Grief Support Group will meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 1 pm for tea and conversation. This will be an informal time together to share how we are doing and whatever is on our hearts as we support one another in our grief. Depending on the size of the group we will either meet in my office or the Fellowship Hall. If this sounds like something for you, I hope you will come. Our next meeting will take place on March 21.

All Church Game Night
Our annual All Church Game Night will take place on Saturday, March 30 at 5:30 pm in Fellowship Hall.
More information to come.

Coffee Hour
Please consider hosting this wonderful time together for one week or
more in the coming year. It is up to you what you bring to share. You
may put on a pot of coffee or use the single serve machine (especially
nice now that we have reusable coffee pods) There will be a sign up
sheet in the Gathering Space.

Pilgrim Lodge
Registration is now open for Pilgrim Lodge. Check out the many camps that are available this summer. There is a schedule posted on the bulletin board or you can pick up a brochure in the Fellowship Hall.

STORM CLOSING procedure for NYCC
If we close/cancel church due to weather conditions we will post on WCSH, WGME, our FB page and we will change the church voicemail. A decision will be made by 7:00 am Sunday morning.
