Pastor Griefen’s children’s story on Sunday is about ‘Rabbouni’


DUMMERSTON -- Worship at the Dummerston Church begins at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 27. This week the liturgy is from the UCC Vermont Conference Annual Meeting, written by the Rev. Martha Peck. Three lay people, Heather Golding, Carol Haney and Betty Greenhoe, will give personal reflections on "One Thing I Know Is True." The children’s story by Pastor Susanna Griefen is "Rabbouni: The Story of Mary Magdalene." Music leadership will be provided by Franz Robert, organist.

On Saturday, May 3, at 1 p.m. there will be a funeral service for Russell and Barry Nutbrown, with committal and reception following.

Caring and Sharing, the church’s semi-annual clothing give-away will be held on Friday, May 9, and Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All in need are welcome to come and "shop" for free. Donations of clean, wearable spring and summer clothing and household goods are much appreciated. Children’s or infants’ toys or furniture or electronics of any kind will be accepted. Donors are asked to wait until after the May 3 funeral to bring donations, if possible.

Saturday, May 3, is Green Up Vermont Day. Meet at the church at 9 a.m. to pick up bags and maps. Bring a picnic to share on the Common when work is done; or pick up bags and Green-Up on your own schedule.
