Please enjoy today’s service. Thank you to Lois Pare’ for her message “Love’s Division” helping us to understand Jesus’ words in Luke 12 and for sharing some of her personal story with us.
In the late 1930’s the Enfield, MA Methodist- Episcopal Church was dismantled in expectation of the coming of the Quabbin Reservoir. The building was reconstructed (minus the steeple) in the town of Palmer where it was used as the Grange Hall for many years. It was a church again for a time in more recent history and very recently the building was sold again. It has been purchased by the Amherst Railway Society as their new home.
The president of the Society has personally invited us to come and see this historic building. They will be having an open house on Saturday, August 20th from 10 AM until 2 PM at 1130 South Main St. in Palmer. There will be tours of the facility and a chance to see their future plans. You will also be able to see an operating Belt Lines model railroad and partake of some refreshments.
So, whether you are interested in Methodist history or are a railroad buff, this may be an event for you!

Rev. Sam Wilde takes on a journey of belief…
A quartet from the choir asks the musical question… “How can I keep from singing?” (If you don’t have time to watch the entire service and would like to hear the quartet, they begin singing at about 40 minutes in.)
Please enjoy today’s Worship Service. Children’s sermon today by Alice Collins about prayer: Just Do It and Sermon from Tish Poulter about the Lord’s Prayer. Thank you to our guest organist Sally Shattuck.
