WASHINGTON ASSN. WORSHIP SERVICE November 2nd @11:00 A.M
All of the churches are gathering to worship together at The Barre Opera House.
There will be no service at our church that morning.
If you need a ride, or want to carpool, please add your name and number on the
sing-up sheet on the table at the back of the church. With all of our voices,
the hymns will sound beatutiful!
DRESS DOWN & CLEAN UP
On the Sunday of November 9th come in old clothes, bring your rubber gloves, sponges and rags.
After a shorter worship service, we'll get busy making our place of
worship shine - and enjoy lunch together. Many hands make like work.

We welcome Ellisa "Lisa" McCarthy into the church community. Lisa attends Norwich University as a cadet and comes highly
recommended to serve as our childcare provider on Sunday mornings during the worship service.
Lisa will be available to care for infants and toddlers from 9:45 to 11:15 as needed,
Please introduce yourself to Lisa and extend your hospitality to her.
