Little Dresses Resumes – Wednesday, September 19th – 12-4:00 pm

Little Dresses meetings will resume in September. It’s time to make little girls in Africa feel special again!  

We now have patterns for four different styles of little dresses and lots of fabric to make them.  We always need help from those who sew and those who prefer to iron, cut fabric or perform any other of our non-sewing needs.  We also assemble kits of the materials needed for a dress.   Some of our members prefer to sew at home using these kits.

We will meet the third Wednesday of the month from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm in our conference room.  Come for an hour or the entire time.   All are welcome; sewing skills not required.

Upcoming meeting dates for the remainder of 2018 are Wednesdays, September 19th, October 17th, November 21st and December 19th. 

Teen Discussion Groups Resume – Sunday, September 16th

It is the beginning of a new year of our teen discussion group, coordinated by Adrienne O’Neil.

September’s discussion group will be held on September 16th and will be led by Gay Ruby and Kate Walkowski.

The topic is “Social Media: Lifeline or Leash.” It will help teens to understand healthy and safe ways to navigate their online interactions.

Watch for more details and times.

Rally Day – Sunday, September 9th

Sunday, September 9th is Rally Day! This marks the beginning of Sunday School and other programs that take a break over the summer months.

For Rally Day, the Christian Education Committee has planned a special worship service for all ages that is designed to teach us all about the different things that we do in worship, including a backpack blessing during the service.

Following the service, we will also be dedicating the new playground with Michael Keefe, the Eagle Scout who did this project for our church. We will be cooking out, so plan to stay and enjoy the festivities. It will be a great chance to thank Michael for all of his hard work.

You can register children for Sunday School on that day as well. We hope to have all of our children and families with us on that day; it should be lots of fun!
