Dear Church Family,

It was a wonderful day for walking as we gathered last Sunday for the CROP walk with about 400 others.  Nine of us  took part in at least part of the walk (along with two dogs!) and several finished the entire 10K.  Congratulations  to our congregation.  We raised over $1800 to help meet hunger needs in our community and beyond. That’s quite an achievement for a congregation of our size.  Dick and Joanne Taber (Dick was former pastor of Salisbury Congregational Church who began the CROP walk in this area 35 years ago) gave a brief historical retrospective and then cut the ribbon to begin the walk.  The attached picture, with us looking rather fresh,  was taken at the beginning of the event by Sally Greco, who also walked.  We have no comparable photo at the end of the trek…..fortunately!   Thanks so much to all of you who supported this effort with your prayers and your contributions.

We celebrate World Communion Day on Sunday.  The texts are Exodus 16:1-12 and Luke 22:14-30.  The sermon is “Eating and Drinking in the Kingdom.”

See you in church

Peace and Joy,

Rich
