NEWS and UPDATES from our CHURCH
FROM THE PASTOR
I find it such joy to have Easter as not only a day but a church season. From Easter Sunday until Pentecost (this year June 4), we keep the cross up, keep the vestments white, and keep our focus on the risen Christ and His commission to us. Rather than celebrate just one day, we get to remember and rest in the glory of Easter for weeks. It feels right, doesn’t it?
As we move through the month, with our usual schedule of worship, Sunday School, Bible Studies and church council meeting, may we continue to give thanks for the amazing gift of the resurrection and seek to follow the Lord in all our ways.
FELLOWSHIP SPRING MEETING
The Fellowship of Northeast Congregational Churches will be holding their spring meeting at United Church in Norwich on Sunday, May 21. The afternoon begins with tea and coffee at 3:00 with donations going toward missions. The business meeting will begin at 4:00 with worship and then the meeting. It will be the final meeting for our Executive Secretary Barbara Erlendson, who has graced our pulpit several times during Rev. Rae’s vacations and was a part of Rev. Rae’s installation. Everyone is invited to attend, to get to know more people in the Fellowship, and to wish Barbara all blessings. If you want further information, please see Rev. Rae.
NEW WOMEN’S GROUP PROJECT
We will be making sundresses from pillowcases. Needed: new or used/clean pillowcases; ¼” wide elastic; 1-2” wide satin ribbon (not with wire); any decorative items like ric rac, ribbons, buttons. We will be holding a sewing day soon. This is a great opportunity for all of us to work together with all manner of sewing and non-sewing tasks. These sundresses will be sent to our sister church in Ghana where Pastor Charles has an orphanage for many little ones.

A word from Martin Churchmouse
The merry month of May is here and I am so happy to see all the flowers and the birds. I have been watching a pair of swans build their nest and get ready to take care of the eggs that will eventually hatch into baby swans. And every time I see them, I think of how wonderful God is to create such wonderful creatures. What are you seeing this month?
