"Do Not Be Afraid:
Defeating Fear with Hope, Peace, Love and a Wholehearted Life"

During our time together we will be journeying with Dr. Brene Brown, a social worker, researcher and best selling author whose focus is on vulnerability and how we let fear in many forms affect our lives. This is not a bible study although we will use scripture to ground us. Our time will be spent in prayer as well as watching and reflecting on videos presented by Dr. Brown. These meetings will take place ONLINE over Zoom. This is different from the book study we are doing.  Sessions begin December 1 thru December 22nd on Thursdays from noon to 1pm.

REGISTER online here.  Once you have registered, a zoom link will be emailed to you in the confirmation.

Holiday Poinsettias are now available for order.

ORDER ONLINE:  click here.​

To order and pay with check or cash, download your order form here and leave in the mailbox outside the office or give to Floss Taylor or Gail Hiltunen.​

ORDER DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 27TH

THANKSGIVING ALTAR DONATIONS
 
The worship committee will, once again, be decorating the altar for Thanksgiving. They will decorate on Saturday morning 11/19.

Donations for the Thanksgiving Altar (fresh fruits, veggies, stuffing, gravy, canned pumpkin etc.) can be dropped off at church during regular office hours from Tuesday November 15th-Friday November 18th (8AM – 1PM).  If you are dropping off your donations on Saturday morning, please do so by 9AM.  Please leave your donations in shopping bags or boxes in the hallway outside the church office. If you will be dropping off outside of office hours, please leave your donations in the Rubbermaid bin outside the church door.

In lieu of turkeys and hams we are also collecting grocery store gift cards, $25 max. Please mail or drop off your gift cards at the office (or in the mailbox outside the office door).  You may also give them to Brenda Jardine or Linda Sherouse.  All donations will be delivered to the Rockingham Community Action Food Pantry in Seabrook directly after church on Sunday 11/20. Thank you so much for your continued support of this mission!!
