Christ Church is one of the organizations participating in Circle Conversations to raise awareness of Race as an issue.  Whether or not you attended the first couple of sessions you are invited.

The next meeting of the Christ Church Circle will be after Coffee Hour on
 date to be determined.  
We will continue our conversation on Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and holding 
a town-wide activity.

Rev. Jim Anderson and Helen Newton will serve as keepers of the circle and move deeper into the issue.

Please join us this Sunday, May 16th at 9:30 AM in person or on Zoom. Rev. Ed will give a sermon titled, "Taken up into Heaven." We hope you can join us.

This Sunday we will have our second outdoor service! It'll be on the lawn at Goodwins Mills UMC, 55 Church St., in Lyman. The service will also be on Zoom for people unable to meet in person. We ask that anyone attending wear a mask and bring a lawn chair.

Gracious God,

Loving God,
As we leave this sacred space, allow us to realize the full weight of our mission. You send us out into a hurting world. May our words, actions, and very presence, bring comfort, healing, and hope. May we rest in the power that you give us. May we hold you in our hearts, as we share with others how you have touched our lives. In Jesus’ name we offer this prayer. Amen.
