FAMILY NIGHT – Mar 18


Our first family game night was held on Saturday evening, February 18. 21 adults and children had a great time playing games and enjoying pizza and cookies. We plan to have a family night again each month.
The next family night will be on March 18 and additional family nights will be scheduled on the 3rd Saturday of the month.

Operation Easter Basket

EASTER BASKET TIME!


Easter candy abounds in the stores again and it’s time for our church’s Easter Basket mission project. We’ll be supplying Easter baskets for the children in transition housing (Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter and Shelter From The Storm) and for the moms and children at New Life Home in Manchester. You can bring individually wrapped candy or small toys to the church. We’ll have a collection box available in the fellowship hall. Or you can contribute money which will be used to supplement the other donations. Just write ‘Easter Baskets’ in the memo line on your check out on the donation envelope. Thank you all!!

MISSIONS WORD

Do good be rich in good works be generous ready to share 1 Timothy 6:18
