CHURCH RE-OPENING UPDATE
The Re-opening Committee has changed the mask policy for our church after reviewing the current CDC and NH state recommendations. Masks will be optional for those who are vaccinated. You may decide to wear a mask anyway for a variety of reasons, and please feel free to do so. We honor your decision. We do still ask that all unvaccinated people please wear a mask at all times in the church building.
As the conditions with regard to Covid-19 change in our area, the Re-opening Committee will meet and make changes to our church policies. We welcome your input. Please contact any committee member with your ideas. The people on the committee are: Laura Constantine, Kathleene Card, Carol Owen, Wendy Dunning, Jim Poplin, Charlene Schultz, Cynthia Faust, Phyllis Porter, Justine Gaskamp, Andy & Linda Wallenstein, Hiel & Susan Lindquist, and Richard Clason.
SUNDAY SCHOOL IS BACK
Hi Friends & Families!
Just a note to say that… Sunday School is BACK!
Now that the teachers are able to be back and more people and children are able to join us in-person, we will be ending our Sunday School To Go packets. We encourage you as you and your family are able and ready, to join us back in the church.
We will continue to offer weekly lessons with crafts and activities that focus on growing in our faith and working together to be a positive part of each other’s lives. We are also hoping to organize some get togethers outside of our regular Sunday School class time.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to the church or a Sunday School teacher! We are really looking forward to being together again, see you soon!

TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE SPECIAL CHURCH CONFERENCE
Peterborough United Methodist Church will hold a Special Church Conference to consider and vote on the proposal of the PUMC Technology Committee. This proposal is to purchase and install a new audio-visual system for the Church. If the proposal passes, the Trustees would seek permission of the Church Conference to use undesignated trust funds to finance the purchase and installation of the system.
The PUMC Technology Committee was established during the pandemic as the Church used live streaming to minister to existing members and those beyond our Church. We soon became aware of how inadequate our existing technology was. Research on new technology was begun. As technology was explored we came to understand that improvements in technology could also enhance our future in person worship experience in new and creative ways. That research has resulted in the proposal from the Technology Committee.
The proposal of the PUMC Technology Committee and financing of the system will be the only agenda items discussed and acted upon during the Special Church Conference on Tuesday, June 22 at 6 pm.
Attendees can join the meeting via Zoom, or at the church on that evening. Contact the church office for Zoom details.
