Worship service – 10:00 am
Please join us for coffee hour after service!
From “God is Still Speaking”
Summer Coffee Hours: We are looking for volunteers to sign up for Coffee Hours this summer.
There is no one signed up thru the summer. Parish Life will be responsible for making sure there is coffee/tea on the table, and while we have some donations of cookies and danish, it is not enough for more than a few Sundays, and we cannot be responsible for providing food every Sunday. There are not as many people in July and August, but they still come hungry and any light snack would be most appreciated. Why not get together with friends or family and sponsor a Coffee Hour? If you would like to just donate a snack, we would welcome that as well.
Thanks and God Bless – Parish Life Committee
This summer, be on the lookout for the following needed items:
Pink items for our “positively pink” basket ($ collected for this basket will go to Seymour Pink)
Items for baskets ~ if you don’t want to donate a full basket, Leslie will be making a box for donations that we can put together for the raffle (and we may put together a few small baskets for sale).
Ornaments for our “All that Glitters” tree (we have enough balls, look for misc. glittery decorations)
We do have a good start on our “Christmas Treasures” items from the tag sale, but will always make room for more!
Supplies: Clear wrap, wired ribbon, and medium and large sized baskets
If you have a craft idea, let Laura or Jeannette know – we plan on having at least 2 craft get-togethers.
For those who did not get an updated Church Directory,
some will be available at Coffee Hour on the table as you walk in.
Thanks to the Adult Choir for sharing your talent with us all year!
Every Communion Sunday, we invite our members and friends
to participate in two special offerings.
THE DEACONS’ FUND
You will find an extra envelope in the pew on Sunday mornings. Contributions included in this envelope go to the Diaconate Fund – a New England Congregational tradition associated with the observance of the Lord’s Supper and dating from colonial days.
This fund, administered by the Diaconate, is used to help individuals in the Seymour area who have an immediate need usually arising out of some tragedy. Confidentiality is observed, and sometimes only the Pastor and the Chairperson of the Diaconate know the circumstances. We invite you to observe this time-honored tradition as you are able and support our community outreach by remembering others when observing the Sacrament of Communion.
THE SEYMOUR-OXFORD FOOD BANK
This is our second special offering. We encourage our members and friends to bring at least one non-perishable food item on Communion Sundays. (Contributions are accepted at other times.) These items are delivered promptly to the Food Bank at the beginning of the week.
Next Sunday is Communion Sunday.
The Food Bank is very low on the following items:
Urgent need – 1 lb. boxes of spaghetti.
Jello, pudding, spam, jam, jelly, canned fruit, instant potatoes, canned white potatoes.
|Monday, June 30||4:00pm||Weight Watchers|
|Thursday, July 3||7:00pm||AA|
