CHURCH COUNCIL: The first meeting of Church Council for the ’19-‘20 church year will be Tuesday, October 1 in the Parlor at 7pm. All committee Chairs are encouraged to attend to share committee and church news as well as review Faith-in-Action grants. Please contact Joan Keane with questions or more information. I look forward to sharing a productive year with you.
Website Updates and help needed - The website update is going slower than I had hoped. But since we have some extra time, we would like to get some input from congregation about how they use the website, and what they would like to see added to the website. We have created a survey to get your feedback, and would really appreciate it if you have a chance to fill this out for us. You can either fill the survey out online (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L7TDLQN) or we will have paper surveys available at social hour during October. Stop by and talk to us about what you’d like to see.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR SOCIAL HOUR: Please sign up to do social hour on the bulletin board in the vestry. You can choose to be responsible for set up, clean up, or both. Directions are on the bulletin board. Money is available to buy supplies if the expense is prohibitive. There is often coffee and juice in the kitchen. If you need training, help finding a buddy or two to do it with you, reimbursement for supplies, or have any questions, please contact Edith Murphy.
Photos and Videos on the church Facebook Page:
While we don’t have a separate policy for our Facebook page, we ask that members of the community follow the website policy on Facebook, particularly when it involves children. Please don’t post photos or videos on the First Parish Facebook page containing children other than just your own.
