CHURCH LIBRARY IS OPEN
Since our town library is closed and will not be open until around Sept. 12th, perhaps you would like to borrow a book from our church library. There are some good fiction books there as well as some interesting non-fiction. Just sign your name on the clipboard and the name of the book you are borrowing. When you return the book, please put it in the box provided so it can be cleaned before putting it back on the shelf. Good reading to you!
ELLEN DUNBAR UPDATE
Dear Church Family,
The resident oncologist at Wentworth Douglas, here in Dover, NH, has decided to start Ellen on chemo tomorrow, Tuesday. Prayers are needed to give Ellen the strength and support to endure the procedure.
We are very blessed to have all of you, our friends and family, praying for Ellen and for having our wonderful daughter, Jessica, and her family here in Durham, providing me with a place to stay and support for Ellen during this time.
You can contact the church office for an address to send cards to.
