Weekly Announcements

WELCOME TO WEST LEBANON CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, U.C.C.
Sunday, July 15, 2018

As you read this, may you feel the lifegiving breeze of the Spirit in all its forms and the aroma of Christ amidst the fellowship around you. Welcome to this outdoor service of worship today, in a slightly different setting: an ideal context to consider the transformative nature of the good news.  Whether you come praising and rejoicing, seeking life’s answers, the face of Christ in this worship experience… or all of the above – may you feel extravagantly welcome here!   And thank you to everyone who assisted with the setting up and taking down.

We welcome Peter Kaplar back as our guest organist this week and at the end of August. Peter is “back over” from Austria. We also thank Nancy and Norman Wolfe for their gift and offering of special music this morning as we gather and as we give of ourselves.

Horton Center happenings: Prayers for a safe and spirit filled week of camping for campers, staff and counselors at Horton Center, this being “New Things” and “Getting Started” weeks at Camp.

Mission Possible! Those within this congregation who feel you might be interested in attending a disaster response mission trip to Port Arthur/Beaumont TX. area, working on a UCC sponsored worksite, now scheduled for October 28 to November 3, please see Jeff ASAP. Our numbers are growing!

Summer Bible and book study news – our summer reading book is in. Please see Jeff or Grace for your copy so that you may read it in time for our first pot luck supper dinner meeting and discussion, upcoming on Wednesday, July 25 at 5:30PM in the Kilton Room.  We meet for the second half discussion of the book on Wednesday, August 22 at 5:30PM.
