It all begins with our outdoor worship and potluck picnic on Sunday, August 14 our 9 a.m. worship service will be outside on the lawn, followed by a mini work-bee to prepare our outdoor space for Vacation Bible School (VBS). We will then conclude with a potluck picnic. This will be a great chance to worship in God's creation, joyfully prepare for VBS, and enjoy fellowship.
Vacation Bible School (VBS): Join us August 14-18 for a free ecumenical VBS from 5:15-8 p.m., with a free dinner for the family Monday through Thursday. It is fun for the whole family! Fill out a registration form, available in the office, and drop it in the mailbox. Interested in volunteering? Email Marie Paquette. Please help spread the word by inviting kids to join us for this great week!
3rd Annual Federal Street Block Party: Let’s bring our neighborhood together on Saturday, August 20 from 12-4 p.m.! Whether you are a local business, a nonprofit agency, or a resident, let’s come together for a great afternoon. The block party will feature the Brattleboro Circus School, music, kid's games, free food, and much, much more! Our hope is that we can spend the afternoon getting to know one another better, find ways to support one another, and have a great time together! There will also be a raffle, in which any proceeds will go to support one of our local nonprofits that helps our community. In 2015, we were able to donate $1,500 to Community Action Family Center, Recover Project, and the Salvation Army. Interested in volunteering? Email Dennis O'Rourke. Please help spread the word!
