MARLBORO -- The Marlboro Meeting House opens for worship at 10 a.m. on Sunday, July 1. Services will continue through Sept. 2. Holy Communion services are the first Sunday of each month.
Jeanne Zammataro, the moderator of the Windham-Union Association of the Vermont Conference of the United Church of Christ, will be preaching a sermon, "Feeding the Multitudes: A 1st Century Miracle or a 21st Century Imperative?," based on Mark 6:30-56. The sermon will explore the more than factual meaning of Jesus feeding the multitudes and how it relates to today.
Zammataro is an active member of the Second Congregational Church, UCC, Londonderry, and is also the chair of the Department of Mission of the Vermont Conference.
Returning guest organist is Shirley Pike who makes her summer home in Williamsville and plays the organ at the West Townshend Seventh-day Adventist Church. During the winter, she plays the organ in her church in Hollywood, Fla. Music has been a big part of her life and she has been playing the organ for 73 years.
The opening hymn will be "Enter, Rejoice and Come In." Mrs. Pike will play a patriotic medley to acknowledge Independence Day and parishioners will sing "O Beautiful For Spacious Skies." The service will close with "This is My Song."
A chair is available for a ride upstairs. Refreshments and fellowship will follow the service. Volunteer opportunities are available each week. Locate the sign-up
