we continue to search for the answers to “Who is our neighbor?” and
“What do our neighbors need?” our church continues to move forward and
make things possible. As we further our quest to find these answers, we
must realize that there will be much greater challenges that will bear
fruit in the Reign of God in Wilbraham and beyond. However, I believe
that we are up to the challenge!!!
We have two classes to go: May 21 and June 4. Please make every effort
to have your child present for this important part of Faith Formation.
On a separate note, I encourage all to keep open the date of June 11
for “Celebration Sunday.” This year, the Education Commission will
coordinate a church-wide barbeque (we will serve the food inside and
have some events, think “bounce house”, for our younger members
outside.) Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, condiments, plates and utensils
will be provided. We WILL ask for help with salads, drinks, desserts,
set-up and break down. Our vision is to make this a true “Celebration
Sunday” for all of Wilbraham United Church. You will have the
opportunity to decided what and if you can assist with this endeavor.
We will need one, two or three people (18 or over) to teach our Pre
K/K/1 Church School class next year. This position can be shared by a
few people. Please see me for details.
save Sunday, June 11 for our Celebration Sunday. All are
welcome to attend. Plans are being made to have a cook-out lunch
for everyone as well a bounce house for the younger members.
your address books as this will be used starting April 1.
