ANNOUNCEMENTS

You are invited to join our 2-day-only Multigenerational Choir! The commitment is only 2 DAYS! We will rehearse right after Church School, on Sunday, June 3 around 11:15-11:30. Our final rehearsal will be held at 9:15 before church on June 10, which is the morning we will perform our music for our Multigenerational RE Service. Please speak to Music Director, Gingy Grimes, or Marie Miller, Music Committee Chair, if you are interested in participating in this Multigenerational Choir, which will be accompanied by our Hand Chime Choir. 

The 2018 Annual Report is ready! We’re encouraging people to go paperless. Click here and download it from our website (just scroll down the web page a little). If you prefer, email Hope in the Church Office and she will email back you a pdf. Paper copies are also available on the Welcome Table located outside the Parish Hall. Please take only one copy per household, and bring it with you to the Annual Meeting on Sunday, June 3 at 11:30 am in the Meetinghouse.

Our next Men's Potluck Dinner will be Monday, June 4. Scott Babcock will host (86 Old Meetinghouse Lane, Norwell). This has been a well attended venue the past few years, so if you were thinking of giving Men's Potluck a try, please join us on the on the North River right in Norwell. We will gather at 6:00 for appetizers and dinner about 6:30. Please let Scott know as soon as possible that you are coming and what dish you're bringing.

Our next Community Dinner will be on Wednesday, June 13, from 5:00 to 6:15 pm. You are invited to attend and enjoy dinner with friends and neighbors. You are also welcome to participate by: attending yourself and making our guests feel welcome; inviting your friends and neighbors to attend; or by bringing people who wouldn't otherwise be able to attend. This is part of our CHALICE outreach and many of us want to host a dinner like this on a monthly basis and our guests would like to come on a monthly basis. Would you like to help make that a reality? We are seeking a pool of volunteers who can sometimes work on a team to put on the dinner. Most jobs don’t include cooking, and some can be done ahead. If you have questions or want to sign up, please contact Jack Wallace , Marcia Babcock , Betsey Drollett , Gabe Millins or Deborah Chase .

This birdhouse was last seen in the fall in the locked shed in the carriage house.  Sentimental attachment. Please contact the Church Office if you know its whereabouts.
