Families: Join Movie Night Fundraiser

The Church School middle school class is hosting a movie night fundraiser on May 12 from 5-9 pm for kids, ages 3-10.  This is a great opportunity for parents to get out for a date night!  We’ll serve a pizza dinner, and show the featured movie Finding Nemo.  The kids (big and little) can play for a while before and after the movie, supervised by teens.  The suggested donation is $15 per child with a max of $30 per family.  Please spread the word to anyone you know who has children in this age group.  All funds raised will go to support the Youth Group’s mission trip.  Please contact Kevin Ruddy at for details and to RSVP.


We wish you the blessings of this Easter Season!

We hope you will join us in worship and fellowship as the season unfolds.

Invitation: Mini-course on Julian of Norwich

Our Wednesday Bible study groups invite you to join us this spring for about eight weeks to read the“Showings” of Julian of Norwich, the first woman ever to write a book in English back in the 14thcentury. Experience for yourself this warm,
engaging group as we commune over scripture. This is a wonderful opportunity to practice close reading of a religious work with the support and insight of others.

There are two options for participating. The morning class from 10 am – 12 noon has begun to study Julian. The evening class from 7 – 8:30 pm will begin their study of  Julian on March 28 or April 4, depending on the weather.  Classes move at their own pace, and attendance every week is not necessary. If you’d like more information, please contact Tracy Rubin at

The recommended edition to purchase is “Julian of Norwich: Revelations of Divine Love”, translated (from Middle English) by Elizabeth Spearing, Penguin Books, ISBN-13: 978-0-140-44673-9. The reason for this edition is that it includes both her short and long texts. We’ll be reading the short text, but the long text will be available for deeper reading if you so desire. Any edition of the short text will also be fine.
