Centre, First Congregational, Dummerston and Guilford Community Church Union Service

Guilford Community Church will welcome Brattleboro Area United Church of Christ churches to celebrate Ascension Sunday together tomorrow at Guilford Community Church. This is part of a long held tradition of sharing worship once a month during the summer season as a way of learning from one another.. It is also a good day to “visit” a church and to get a feel for the beliefs and worship style of each congregation. On June 28 the First Congregational Church will host the Annual Interfaith Gay Pride Service, on July 30 Dummerston Congregational Church will host and on August 27 the Centre Church will provide the final service.

The Guilford service will highlight our shared ministries with impoverished populations and the offering will go to the desperate famine in South Sudan to mark the Global Day of Prayer to End Famine. Rev. Lise Sparrow’s sermon entitled” Losing What We Have and Having What We’ve Lost” is a reflection on how those following the teachings of Jesus work through death and loss. The scripture from John 17:1-11 provides the basis for the children’s story and the sermon. Music under the direction of Peter Amidon and accompanied by jazz pianist Franz Robert will include two african american spirituals: “Total Praise” and “I Want to Walk and Talk with Jesus Every Day”. Anyone wishing to sing in the choir should come by 8:30AM for rehearsal. Everyone Is welcome.

During the service, children from the churches will have a Game Day, weather permitting, outside and a reception will follow the service.

 

Welcome!

"No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey…you are welcome here."
