We are looking for at least two Sunday school teachers for the fall. We use a detailed curriculum, so you don’t have to design lessons or activities yourself! On the other hand, if you have ideas for activities, you’re also welcome to use them. If you are interested in helping or finding out what it entails, please let Becca, Ashley, Jenn, or Shannon know.
This summer, we are looking for some adults who are willing to go outside with the children and work on Christian and Bible themed crafts after the children’s sermon. We don’t know if we’ll have children any given week, so it would be nice to have a few people “on call”. There is no curriculum to worry about, just the willingness to do fun crafts with the kids! We prefer to have two adults with children at all times. If you are willing, please let Becca know which weeks you could be “on call”.
It is that time of year again as we approach our most fun fundraiser – The Service Auction. Jill Russom has volunteered to organize the event this year, and it will be held on July 16th following worship at the Batchellerville Church. Start thinking about planning a party or making a theme basket, a meal to share, homemade something to offer, or any other item or service. Cards are available from Jill and should be returned ASAP, so we can start thinking about what to bid on!
On Sundays at 7PM at the Northville church, we will have an evening service from July 2nd to September 3rd. This service will be quiet and meditative. There will be a brief sermonette, and we will share the Lord’s Supper every week. If you can’t make it to Batchellerville (or just want an extra worship experience!), please consider joining us.
The Steadfast class will be having their spring picnic on June 14th at the home of Jill Russom on 3rd Street in the village. There will be a social hour starting at 5:00PM with a pot luck dinner to follow at 6:00PM. We extend a special invitation to all women of the church and hope you can join us. Ask Carol Hawley for more details.
On June 6th, the 313th Stated Meeting of Albany Presbytery will be held at our church! The meeting starts at 9:30 am, and registration begins at 8:30. We will need helpers for greeting people and helping them find their way around, as well as set up and clean upfor the lunch in fellowship hall. If you are interested in helping, please let Becca know. For those of you who are interested in what happens at Presbytery meetings, this is also a perfect opportunity to check it out. The part of the meeting where we worship together is always wonderful and a nice way to remember that we are part of a connectional church. Worship will be from 11-12. Please consider attending for all or part of the meeting! All desserts (finger food type) is to be brought to the fellowship hall prior to June 6th. Call Carolyn Learch if you need assistance.
The May Garage Sale Fundraiser will be Saturday, May 6th this year. We will again run a luncheon in the fellowship hall as well as an outside garage sale. We need donations of Soups, Chili, breads, and baked goods. Let Carol Hawley know what kind of soup, bread, or baked goods you would be willing to make.
Timeline of events:
By May 4th, please call Carolyn Learch to reserve a table for selling.
All items donated should be marked with a suggested price and brought to the church on May 5th. For those needing help with transporting their donations please call Karen Marion.
Volunteers (Cashiers and Sales staff) are needed to make this a successful event. Let Carolyn Learch know if you are able to help. Set up is May 5th at 9:00am. Clean up starts at 3:00pm on May 6th.
