ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Church Office will be closed next week due to school vacation week.  Donna will be in the office briefly on Wednesday, and Hope will be in briefly on Thursday. Regular office hours will resume  Tuesday, February 28 .

Our Tai Chi classes resume next Tuesday, February 21, in the Parish Hall. A $25 fee for four weeks is payable at the first class. No special equipment, clothing, or shoes are needed.  New students are welcome at any time and prior attendance or registration is not necessary – so invite friends and neighbors.  Questions? Contact Sue Robinson at 781-294-8840.

From March 5 to April 9, the RE program will be sponsoring our second annual Mystery Friends event.  Sign up for Mystery Friends, and we’ll match you with a pen pal in the church. Each week you’ll exchange letters, and then at the end of 6 weeks, have a party where you meet your new friend in person for the first time. Sign ups will be available in the Parish Hall each Sunday in February. 

The sermon on Sunday, February 26 will be "When I Breathe In" with Rachel Christensen, guest preacher.  For many of us (regardless of our politics) these are anxious times. How do we find healing, care for our spirits, care for those we love? Rachel Christensen is currently serving as hospital chaplain and will be ordained in Orlando on March 19, 2017.

The next Cottage Meeting will be held on Sunday, February 26 at 11:30 am in the Fogg Parlor.  If you were not able to attend any of the prior meetings, the final session will be on Friday, March 10 at 6:15 pm (both in the Fogg Parlor). Child care is available. 

RE is continuing to accept donation for their Cradles to Crayons trip in March.  A full wish list of needed items is posted over the collection bin in the hallway outside the Meetinghouse, or click here
