UCC New England Women's Celebration
April 6-8, Portland, Maine
Did you know that several women from North Church have attended this event for 34 years? Held every 4 years, it is a truly special experience; any women interested in attending please click on the link or reach out to Judi Lewis.

Indoor Flea Market & Craft Show
April 14
The Women's Fellowship 20th Annual Indoor Flea Market & Craft Show will be held on Saturday, April 14. Do a favor for your closets, drawers, and attic - donate to this worthy cause, one of our biggest fundraisers of the year.

Please start your spring cleaning and drop off your items in the church office. If you would like, you may reserve a space for $35 and bring your own treasures to sell. For details, please call Sharon Sherman at 203-266-9051 or 203-695-5410.
Stop & Shop Cash Cards
In 2017, the Stop & Shop Cash Card program netted the church $375 (5%) of $7,500 in cards sold. The program has great potential as a fundraising tool, so while the church does not promote any particular food market, if you do shop even occasionally at Stop & Shop, we ask that you consider participating in the Cash Card Program. 

To make it easier to particpate, an insert will be placed in the bulletin on the last Sunday of each month. Simply fill it out with your order, turn it in, and we will do the rest. If you have friends or family who shop at Stop & Shop, by all means share this opportunity with them as well - every little bit helps!

Note: We continue to participate in the LaBonnes receipt program; this is simply an additional opportunity to raise funds.
