Welcome back and thank you, Barbara Purinton, for leading us in worship today. Rev. Dr. Barbara Purinton is a graduate of Andover Newton Theological School (MDiv), Eastern Baptist Theological School (now Palmer Seminary) DMin, and a 2014 Graduate of Goddard College (MFA in Creative Writing). She has served churches in Jeffersonville and Danville/North Danville with her husband Charlie and served as pastor in Richmond for 19 years. Since 2011 she has served 6 churches as interim pastor, She is a certified Spiritual Director and just retired after 30 years as an EMT.  Barbara lives in North Hero with her husband, daughter and grandchildren. Barbara is joining our ministry team as a “Pastoral Associate” to serve as one of our designated and dedicated “on-call” clergy members to help lead worship, provide pulpit supply, and officiate various ceremonies and services when needed.

 

DCF's (Department of Children and Families) mission is to foster the healthy development, safety, well-being, and self-sufficiency of Vermonters. They provide benefits, services, and support to some 200,000 Vermonters every year, including children, youth, families, older Vermonters, and people with disabilities.

If you want to purchase an apple or pumpkin pie that people in the church have made, they will be available Tuesday, November 22.  Please let Marylou know if you want one, or two. They are $20 each.  Approximately half the pies we made will go to those in need of food.

During the month of November we are asking for prayers for the Trustees of our church.  Our trustees are responsible for all of the upkeep of our church property, maintaining the beauty of our building, safety, and maintenance of the Church building including Narthex, Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall.  They are also responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the church parsonage.  

With such old buildings this requires an incredible amount of time and work, and they are looking for volunteers to help share this work.  If you are interested in decorating, painting, interior designs, gardening, contracting, consulting or just lending an extra hand for projects, please contact our Head Trustee, David McGaughy at McGaughyDavid1@gmail.com.  Many hands make light work.
