Thanks to our wonderful community donors, thousands of diapers have already been distributed to little local ones in need! On February 19th from 12-2pm we will be having a diaper drive to keep our mission going. This will be in collaboration with the Waterville Public Libraries “Snow Fest”! Stop by for a day of snow fun and bring a pack of diapers!!
We have several upcoming events planned.
Auxiliary All You Can Eat Breakfast is on February 20. 8-11.
Chicken BBQ on February 23. Chicken halves only.
There will be a special meeting on Sunday, February 27, following the service of worship at 9:00 a.m.,
when the Council will present to the congregation a candidate to be our spiritual leader.
The Council, guided by the Holy Spirit, has voted to call Thomas Lawton to our congregation.
He occupied the pulpit twice in December, and has been here every Sunday for the month of January
and most of February. Lawrence Gilley has been sending out his sermons, so hopefully many have been
able to hear him speak. If not, your next chances are this Sunday, the 20th, or the 27th,
when the vote will take place…
We hope everyone will be able to join us for this important decision.
Here is the link to Rev. Lawton’s sermons:
Whiskey Creek is coming to town. Friday March 4th 7-10.
Come and enjoy some live music with us.

We’ve been listening!
With the wish for Story Hour for those not wanting to go out after nap time, but the hesitancy
for large groups of different people each week, we’re hoping that Story Hour Pods offer
a great option for time we’re in. Groups will be small, with the same kids at each gathering
(don’t worry, it’s ok to miss every now and then too).
Registration and times coming soon.
In the meantime, be thinking if you would like to help us host a pod,
weekly or on a rotating schedule! It just may help us offer them at
alternative times that work better for you!
If you’re interested in earning your certificate in Child and Babysitting Safety over the winter break (or another time), please fill out the attached initial interest form to help us gauge numbers.
Once we have enough people to confirm a class, we’ll put out full registration and get you rolling!
