DUMMERSTON -- Worship at the Dummerston Congregational Church begins at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29. The sermon is "Judgment and Grace," based on Luke 16: 19-31. The Children’s Story is "Jacob Becomes Israel," based on Genesis 32. Children begin in worship and then go to an open classroom under the direction of Church School Director Billie Slade. Music leadership will be provided Franz Robert, organist.
Donations of small collectibles handwork, ornaments and jewelry for the Grandmother’s Attic Table at the Apple Pie Festival on Oct. 13 may be left in the church kitchen.
Pie making begins Monday, Sept. 30, for the festival on Oct. 13. Apple slicers and pie rollers are needed every weekday from 9 a.m. to noon and from 4 to 9 p.m. in variable shifts. Families who want to work with children under the supervision of their parents, and those wanting practice in rolling pies are invited to come from 4 to 6 p.m. Pie-making is like an old-fashioned barn-raising: a fun, neighborly, highly productive gathering. The workers make over 150 pies a day using the bank of ovens in the church kitchen. It takes a lot of hands to make 1,500 apple pies. All are welcome to join in this neighborly effort and major fundraiser for the church.
Tickets are being sold for the raffle of a Hunter’s Star Quilt, donated to raise funds for the mission trip to Kenya. The drawing will be at the Apple Pie Festival.
The church is located at 1536 Middle Road, Dummerston Center. It is a Green Justice Congregation of The United Church of Christ. For more information about this energetic, faithful, friendly and mission-oriented church, contact Pastor Susanna Griefen at 802-257-0544 or email@example.com.
