NEW CHURCH OFFICE HOURS

Pastor Condon’s schedule at present is likely to be Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays (later in the day) and Sundays.
He can be reached at the church phone or at home: (508) 222-2535

Pastor John and Susan generally will not be with us or preaching the fourth Sunday of the month. This is offered by the Deacons to lighten the load of travel they make each week.

We look forward to seeing you!

STORAGE SPACE NEEDED

Patti and her tag sale team desperately need storage space for some tag sale items which are already coming in. Storage areas in the church have already been filled. The items will be clean and boxed so they will store easily. If you can help, please call Patti at (774) 479-2763 or the Church Office at (508) 867-6262.



Child Care

Child care is provided under the supervision of Ellie Blodgett during each Sunday service.  All children from newborn to Sunday school age are welcome. Please speak to the deacon in charge if you need assistance.

Recently we were graced with an outstanding mural in our nursery of Noah's Ark.  This artistry was completed by Jordan Nugent, a college student who currently attends Nichols College.  Jordan's work is so well done and super entertaining. Viewing the ark has brought smiles of delight not only to the children in the nursery but any adult who walks past the nursery.  If you would like to see more of Jordan's work you may look for her at facebook.com/nugentcreations


Church Cookbooks from Helping Hands are available.
Our Church Cookbooks make a great gift!
Available in the Fellowship Hall. Only $5.00

Food Pantry reminder:

BCC is one of many churches that provides support to the Brookfield Ecumenical Food Pantry.  Approximately 50 families in the community are receiving services through the food pantry.  If you are willing and able to help support this program, there are donation baskets in the back of the Sanctuary near the stairs to the Narthex.

Thank you for your continued support.  Non-perishable food donations are accepted.  The Pantry can also really use paper goods and toiletry items, as these are items they are unable to get from the food bank.

Blessings to you all!


CHURCH SCRAPBOOK

Patti Coltey is looking for used and unwanted greeting cards for the church scrapbook. If you have any, please give them to her any Sunday morning. Thank you!
