Recent Activities

Sept 2010: Jim King identified the boundaries of the piece of land above the playground that the church was given a few years ago.  Hopefully we will be able to discern a good use for this piece of land.

Sept 25, 2010:  The Work Day was a great success. An ample number of volunteers pitched in and got the grounds cleaned, trimmed, and raked. We were also able to repair and repaint a number of windows at the Rectory. Linda Tribeau, Diana Spence, and others pitched in and fixed us a terrific noontime meal, which was really appreciated, after the work was done.

March 27, 2010: A good time was had by all while the church yard was made ready for Easter.  See pictures from this work day in the sidebar.

January, 2010: The furnace in the Parish House was replaced.  Bob Blanton managed to get this done at a good price and with a good warranty.
