BRATTLEBORO -- Centre Congregational Church in downtown Brattleboro will host a panel discussion regarding what it means to become an Open and Affirming church on Sunday, Nov. 3, following a Harvest Luncheon after the 10 a.m. worship.
The panel, comprising members and friends of the church, will share why it is important to them to be part of an ONA church. Task Force members are Darrel Daley, Marion Daley, Rob Harnish, Patti Neubauer, Bob Pu, Bev Webster, and Don Webster. Jon Potter, Council chair, will moderate.
The Rev. Carra McFadden continues to lead worship throughout October. Special offering this month will benefit Neighbors in Need, a special mission offering of the national United Church of Christ, of which Centre Church is a member.
Steve Peterson, retired college professor from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., continues to lead Bible study prior to worship, using chapters from the Acts of the Apostles. The same study, called God’s Surprises, is repeated Mondays at 7 p.m. Materials are provided.
Dinner and lunch groups are being formed by the Member Care Board during October, with sign-up sheets posted on the bulletin board.
The mission of Centre Church, located at 193 Main St., Brattleboro, is to worship and serve God, following the example and teachings of Jesus Christ. To learn more, contact the office at 802-254-4730 or visit the website at www.centrechurchvt.org.
