A voice cries: Prepare the way of the LordNovember
Looking ahead: Advent starts on November 27th! Each Wednesday, beginning on November 30th, we will be hosting mid-week soup suppers, followed by “Holden Evening Prayer” service. This is a beautiful, contemplative way to find space for the sacred as we move through Advent. We’ll start at 6pm each Wednesday evening.
Calling those who knit, those who crochet, and those who have spare yarn: Join the Fun! We are knitting/crocheting SCARVES for those in need. Other churches in NH are also doing this. We will knit/crochet during the month of December. At a yet to be selected date, we will adorn Laconia with our scarves. Each scarf will have a message attached. If you do not knit or crochet, you can donate yarn for others to knit. Want to learn to knit or crochet? We are organizing a time for lessons and fellowship as we knit/crochet. Place your scarves in the basket in the Narthex of the church. Help yourselves to the yarn donated. Questions? See Bev Nelson or Lee Krueckeberg.
