A Letter from
Bi
shop Sudarshana Devadhar
September brings a new season of activity to our calendars and provides fresh opportunities to open our hearts and doors to new people and new possibilities.

As my calendar permits, I am visiting churches in our Conference for dialogue and conversation. Read his message here.



During the past 2 months, a group of about 25 Church people have been working on a for-ward thinking Vision for the Church. At the same time, this group will attempt to vision our place in the Town of Moultonboro and the Lakes Region. On 8/27/14, the Ad Board ap-proved this pilot project in full and the group is now looking for additional people to assist with completing the vision process. The goal is to enlist a diverse group of people to build a consensus of where this church might be in the next year, 5 years, and beyond. Listed below are the present sub-committees. In addition, an oversight committee is required to bring into focus the results from each sub-committee.

Please contact one of the following leaders:
Spiritual Focus -
    Melissa Carroll  carrollsfive@yahoo.com
Outreach/Missions -
       Bev Charest   beverlycharest@yahoo.com
Facilities/Trustees -
Administrative/Financial -
Donn Bettinger    bettingerd@aol.com
Oversight Committee -

The groups will meet 1-2 times per month for a number of months. A key part of this project will be a Survey of the entire church congrega-tion. This is a Congregation led Project that hopefully will enable all of us to have a Vibrant church for years to come. Come and be part of the process.

Thanksgiving Around the World
October 21st UMW Mtg

Thanksgiving Customs in Other Cultures
We generally think of Thanksgiving as a uniquely American holiday, but there’s actually a long tradition of harvest-time celebrations and Thanksgiving celebrations in countries around the world. Even our own celebration of Thanksgiving has changed over the years. Rev. Ed will present a program on how some of these celebrations have come into being and why they have changes at this month’s UMW meeting on the 21st of this month. Hope to see you there
