Summer Music and Flowers
Summer is a time of bounty in Maine, beautiful long days, growing gardens, creative energy flowing. Please share your abundance by bringing in flowers for our sanctuary and sharing your musical gifts. The flowers need not be fancy; the fields and woods share their joy too, and several boxes have been planted with flower seeds in our back garden, please pick and share with our congregation. We need anthems, in past years Jenny and a few others, could be counted on to share a poem or short reading. You need not be musical, but for those who are Tricia said she would be happy to help. Please sign up on the sheets attached to the door, at the top of the stairs heading to Fellowship Hall.
Evening prayer service will be offered Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm to 7 pm beginning next Wednesday, July 25. Join us in prayer.
Finance Committee will meet next Wednesday, July 25 at 7 pm.
