DUMMERSTON -- Worship at the Dummerston Congregational Church on Mother’s Day, May 11, at 9:30 a.m. will focus on the question, "What is Grace?" The scripture lesson is Ephesians 2: 1-22, "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of GodŠ"

As part of our exploration of "Who we are and what we believe," there will be a movie shown Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. with soup and salad. "For the Bible Tells Me" is a moving series of real-life stories of five very normal, very Christian, very American families as these people of faith handle the realization of having, or being, a gay family member. Other contributors include Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard’s Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and the Rev. Jimmy Creech. Also shown Wednesday, May 21, 2 to 4 p.m. or by request.
