A moment of encouragement


Dear Friends,
We are working on a plan to reopen the church building only for Sunday morning worship. We hope to start on May 16!
We need to start out slowly and carefully. We will change our plans if need be. Knowing how many people to expect at our first Sunday morning service would help us plan. Would you please tell us if you and your family are likely to come once we start regathering by emailing Laura Constantine, calling Cindy Faust, or letting the office know with a phone/email if we do not already have one. We still intend to live steam for people who cannot come in person.
The committee will do its best to make the worship service as low-risk as we can, using the recommendations of the CDC and the New England District’s resources for reopening.
The main reason we can consider reopening is that so many have been vaccinated against Covid. We would encourage all of our people to consider getting the Covid vaccine to protect themselves and others who cannot get the vaccine yet (children, for example). The more people who are vaccinated, the safer we will be!
If you are interested in helping us plan, please let Laura Constantine know – we need all hands on deck! Won’t it be wonderful to worship together in person again?!


May’s food donations will be collected for Rindge Food Pantry. You may leave donations in the white box at the end of the ramp at the church. Thank you to everyone who has donated!

Taken when a person joins a United Methodist church as a baptized or professing member.
By taking the baptismal and local church membership vows, the individual agrees to covenant with God and the members of the local church to keep the vows that are part of living the baptismal covenant and reception into membership in the local church.
These vows have four parts:
(1) to confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior;
(2) to believe in the Christian faith as contained in the Old and New Testaments;
(3) to support The United Methodist Church; and
(4) to uphold the local congregation with one’s prayers, presence, gifts, service ,and witness.
The first two parts are included among the baptismal vows.
Those and the latter two parts are included in the vows when becoming a professing member in a local United Methodist congregation.
