Thank you to everyone for making our Mother’s Day/ Blanket Sunday a success. Blessings to all who received a scripture stone.  We are so pleased that on Pentecost and Baptism Sunday everyone received a Golden Dove pin “Faith Moves Mountains”. As a gift from the Missions Committee it was our pleasure that everyone received a pin.  Our filled Military Basket will be given to the Pembroke Military Support Group on either Military Sunday or at the Memorial Day Parade ceremony which is on Monday, May 28th. The Parade started at Arrows and ended at First church. Thank you again to everyone who helped fill our basket.

On June 10 the Morris Scholarship will be awarded to our four recipients.

June 17 is Father’s Day/Tool Sunday we will be asking for a donation of $5.00 to buy Father’s Day cards. The sale of these cards goes to Church World Service, which our church, the United Church of Christ, is part of. The goal is to provide people with the skills to help build up their communities.

We plan to give the Maine campers boxes of children’s clothing to be taken to Maine for the needy.  The Thrift Store will be putting the boxes together. Along with the boxes a monetary gift will be give also so diapers and pull-up diapers can be purchased.   Thank you to the Thrift Store “ladies” for all their help and the work they do.

Missions Meetings: June 10, July 8, August 12.

Fellowship Coffee Hour will continue for the months of July and August.

Have a safe and happy summer.


The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.  Numbers 6 24-26
