REOPENING THE CHURCH BUILDING
Our first in-person worship service since the COVID pandemic began will be on Sunday, May 16 at 10:00. We will be limiting the number of people that can attend, so please contact Laura Constantine or the church office to reserve a space. If we are already at the limit, you will be put on the list for the following Sunday. We are proceeding slowly and carefully so that we can all keep safe and still worship in person, so we ask for your understanding and grace as we figure this out. We will be sending out more information by mail very soon!
Our worship video is brief this week, as we have had some technical difficulties.
Our sermon will be When Mothers Listen to God.
Thank you for your patience.
NO ONLINE FELLOWSHIP HOUR ON MOTHER’S DAY, MAY 9TH
We will not be holding our online fellowship hour on Sunday, May 9th, in honor of Mother’s Day.
SUPPORT UMCOR’S COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” — 2 Timothy 1:7
As we watch the global virus cases reach a new peak, many of you have asked how you can help.
Global Ministries and UMCOR continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic through health and humanitarian efforts by supporting communities around the world with information campaigns, medical equipment, hygiene kits, and supplies to meet basic human needs.
As cases surge in places like India and Brazil, The United Methodist Church, through UMCOR, continues to respond and remains committed to alleviating the suffering brought on by COVID-19.
Members of the New England Conference who want to support this vital work are encouraged to donate to UMCOR’s COVID-19 Response Fund (Advance #3022612). Donations made through Prosper can use New England fund #919.
Please keep all those who are suffering in this pandemic and those doing the vital work of caring for them in your prayers.

DIFFERENCE – RECONCILIATION TRAINING SESSIONS
The Archbishop of Canterbury has launched a five-week training program, “Difference,” exploring how Christians can be peacemakers.
Archbishop Justin Welby rightly points out, “Reconciliation is not the ending of all difference, but the transformation of how we deal with difference.
These five 90-minute sessions are being provided at no cost and include films of stories from Christians facing conflict, Bible study of how Jesus dealt with difference and division, interactive exercises, prayer and discussion.
It is my hope and prayer that during the seasons of Easter and Pentecost, at least 10 people from our Conference would volunteer to be trained and upon completion, lead study groups on reconciliation in our districts. If you are interested, please contact Brenda Borchers at the episcopal office, who will register our participants as a group. If you would like further information, please visit https://difference.rln.global/run-the-course
