Welcome to worship here at West Lebanon Congregational Church

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, and life to everything.  Plato


After a successful week of continuing education at the Festival of Homiletics, Jeff returned to NH on Friday evening and will now be on several days’ vacation; returning, Thursday, 5/25.

Thank you to everyone who took part in making this Music Sunday so fulfilling and beautiful.  Much appreciation to everyone who made the Italian Church Supper a fun and successful evening. Mark your calendar on June 24th for the big Chicken BBQ and Strawberry Shortcake final dinner in the 2016-17 Supper Series. The 2017-18 Series will kick-off on September 9th with a Lobster Bake.

The Christian Ed. Group, with our students, is doing a fundraiser for Heifer International during the month of May. The calendars (which give you entertaining ways of collecting cash around the house) and the collection boxes are available each Sunday and in Kilton Room during the week. We will be collecting the boxes the first Sunday in June. The students and teachers will be educating EVERYONE on the program…during the children’s moment in church. No contribution is too small!           Thank you, Linda Kahl

Please remember that Horton Center Camp registrations are open and available for all ages online (and that does mean ALL) for the season. Brochures are located in the hallway that detail dates for Opening and Closing work days, June 10 Open House, and all the sessions of Camp throughout the summer and fall.
