To my friends at NYCC:
I am so very grateful for my years at NYCC.  It’s truly been my privilege to have worked with such wonderful musicians like Peter, Jesse, David and each choir member. I also feel so fortunate to have been here during Pastor Nancy’s ministry.  She has blessed my life in so many ways and she will be missed.
Thanks to Lyn for always making sure I had a bulletin in advance and for your ability and patience in recording music for the virtual services.  Thank you for the lovely gifts, flowers and cards last Sunday.
Thank you David for the beautiful and delicious cake as well as all the wonderful music opportunities.  What a privilege to accompany you in solo or duet with Jesse!
Thank you choir for my “Treble Maker” mug  and the generous contents and all the fun we’ve had during rehearsals.  Keep singing and having fun while you sing under the excellent leadership of David.
Thank you for the gifts of kindness, love, acceptance and encouragement.
I could go on and on but words don’t really express my gratitude. 
Please know that I am truly grateful for my time there.
Love, peace and blessings to you all. Linda

Masks are now optional in the church building, however the Maine CDC has recommended wearing them for the time being indoors as the Covid infection rate has increased significantly in recent weeks. Please use your own judgement regarding wearing one.  We will continue to adhere to social distancing in the sanctuary and in Fellowship Hall.
