CHURCH YARD SALE,  Saturday, April 13:  Bring your family and friends to the giant yard sale this Saturday! There will be items inside and outside Riley Hall. For more information, contact Adrianne Rafferty at

Church World Service Hygiene Kits Drive: CWS hygiene kits will be collected through the month of April in the church narthex or at the church office in Riley Hall. These hygiene kits offer a refreshing daily boost for people who are forced to abruptly leave their homes because of emergencies.  The items requested are very specific and should be placed in a one gallon zip locked bag. Please do not include any extra items. The specific list of 7 items are listed below.

Hygiene Kits for Church World Service: 1 hand towel (approx 16”x28”) ; 1 washcloth ; 10 standard size band-aid; 1 wide tooth comb (removed from pkg) ; 1 toothbrush (in original pkg); 1 bar bath-size soap (in wrapper); 1 fingernail or toenail clipper (removed from pkg) 

GOODS AND SERVICES AUCTION, Friday May 3:  Get ready for a night of fun, fellowship, and fundraising coming up in just a few weeks as our Goods and Services Auction gets underway at Riley Hall. Bidding will begin at 7:00 p.m., with a preview opportunity for viewing items and munching on pot-luck desserts and snacks before the donated services and goods go up for sale. Please consider what you might offer to be auctioned.  Do you have a particular item that you’d be willing to donate?  Terrific!  Or would you be willing to offer a “service?” Planning and preparing this event requires a team of volunteers. Please contact Ava Sigsby 781-826-3912, or Priscilla Cedrone,

JOYS and CONCERNS: Please email the church office with your life changes so that we can lift you up in prayer.
