Pray for General Convention

Almighty and everlasting Father, you have given the Holy Spirit to abide with us for ever: Bless, we pray, with his grace and presence, the bishops and other clergy and the laity here (or now, or soon to be) assembled in your Name, that your Church, being preserved in true faith and godly discipline, may fulfill all the mind of him who loved it and gave himself for it, your Son Jesus Christ our Savior; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Interfaith Prayer Vigil for Peace and Racial Healing

You are invited to an Interfaith Prayer Vigil for Peace and Racial Healing at South Congregational Church on Wednesday evening, June 24th, at 7 pm.  The service will be a time to grieve the nine victims murdered at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC and to express our solidarity with members of the African American community and with people everywhere who have been the victims of racial, religious or ethnic violence or hate crimes of any kind.  The service will be held at South Congregational Church, 27 Pleasant Street, and is is co-sponsored by the Greater Concord Interfaith Council.  The church is wheelchair accessible.

Friendly Kitchen volunteers needed

Barbara G.Sunday, July 12 is our next time to prepare and serve dinner at the Friendly Kitchen. We need a few people to serve dinner that day. Typically we meet at the kitchen 3:00-3:30pm and are done no later than 6:30pm. Work involves putting a salad together, heating up rolls and then at 5:00pm serving the guests. We also need someone to operate the commercial dishwasher. We cleanup at 6:00pm when dinner has ended. It’s easy, fast-paced but fun work. Contact Tina Preston, 464-9020, bettinatrb@aol.com.

No specific shopping items for Take a Tote will be highlighted until mid-August.  You may consult the poster in the narthex for suggestions of what we’ll be packing in October.  If the expiration date is in 2016, feel free to help re-build our inventory.  We are so blessed by your faithful donations of food or cash.  Happy Summer to everyone!

Take-a-Tote end-of-year needs

Our last delivery is this Thursday. Thank you drivers, packers, shelf stockers, donors, shoppers, and everyone who has helped in any way. Our fifth year of food ministry has been truly amazing. Over the summer, your weekly donations will be delivered to the local food pantry on Pembroke Road unless we can safely store it.
