If you haven't made your pledge yet, please click on this link or return your pledge card in the mail or offertory. Pledge cards are also available in the pew racks and in the narthex. Thank you!

The discussions are supported by background reading assignments. You are invited to participate regardless of the amount of reading you have done. At this meeting we will discuss The Righteous Mind, Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion , by Jonathan Haidt. The Rev. Dr. Dennis Calhoun will be the moderator.
Thank you to Anna Arbo for sharing this memory of the Old North Christmas Pageant from a first grade assignment on Family Traditions!

Old North Winter Trip
For the fifth year in a row, we are organizing our annual winter trip to NH. Last year, over 60 ONCers headed north for skiing, hiking, ice skating, community meals, bon fires, smores, board games, and a Sunday service in the woods. As is the case across all ONC activities, inclusivity is a central theme. The trip is open to all ages, all interests from skiing to reading a book by the fire, and does not require any association with the church. This year, we are making the trek on the weekend of 2/7 to 2/9.  We have rooms blocked at Whitney's Inn in Jackson, NH. If you call to book, mention that you are with Old North Church in Marblehead. Also, please let Mark Roberge know if you plan to attend for planning purposes or if you have any questions.

Community Life Ministry
Name Tag Update
The Community Life Ministry Board continues to try to ensure everyone has a new magnetic* name tag, but sometimes we miss one, or we may not get your name the way you'd like it. If you need a name tag, or a new name tag for any reason, please let us know. Thank you. * People with pacemakers should not wear the magnetic nametags. Heart patients might want to check with their doctors.
