GUILFORD - With the start of Sunday School and the Church Picnic that follows the 10 a.m. worship service, the Guilford Community Church, U.C.C. has a lot to celebrate tomorrow at 10am worship. Continuing with the Mission 4 1 Earth campaign the congregation will join with the choir, under the direction of Peter Amidon, singing songs which tell the story of Noah and the Ark and speaks of the God’s covenant with hymns to care for all creatures. Many are traditional folks songs, including "Heist the Window Noah" , Wings of Love and "It’s Gonna Rain" among others. Rev Larrimore Crockett will read an adapted version of the story from Genesis and Pastor Lise Sparrow will offer reflections on the meaning of covenant.
The Sunday School will begin a multi-age curriculum using What’s So Amazing About Polar Bears: Teaching Kids to Care for Creation, focussing not only on what’s amazing about various creatures but also on endangered species and what children can do to protect them. The Sunday School collection for the Fall will go to the David Sheldrike Wildlife Trust and over the next few weeks children will have the opportunity to visit animals.
