A Way Out of No Way: Protecting
A Way Out of No Way: Blesssings
We begin a new Worship series today….A Way Out of No Way with today’s theme, Saving. Sunday School is back in session and children and adult students brought their backpacks for a special blessing.
Our last Sunday looking at the Ties that Bind. Don’t miss the fabulous organ/piano duet with our organist/choir director Julie Jonassen and Pastor Joy! We apologize that the beginning of the service was cut off.
We did great getting lots of folks in to have their pictures taken in August. Of course there were some who were away or didn’t make it for other reasons. We will be having a make up day for photos on Wednesday September 19th from 2:00 to 9:00 PM. Please call the church office at 413-323-7584 if your family would like to come in to have their picture taken that day!
Do you remember when the last HUMC photo directory was done? Was your picture in the directory? Well, it is time for a new version of the directory with your picture included. Lifetouch Family Photography will be at our church for three days in August.The dates are Thursday, August16th and Friday, August 17th from 2:00-9:00 pm and Saturday, August 18th from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Every person/family who has their photo taken will receive a complimentary 8×10” photograph and a copy of the new directory, just for participating. You may order additional copies of selected photos at the photography session. Christmas is coming, and they make excellent presents. When you arrive, you will be given a $10.00 coupon worth $10.00 toward your purchase if you provide your email address. Another $5.00 off coupon will be presented if you bring in a food item for the local food pantry.
We would like to have a finished directory that provides an up-to-date listing with photos of our entire congregation. If you are a member who lives far from Western MA you will be receiving a special mailing that lists ways that you can have your photo taken and included with the rest of your church family.
So, let’s see all of you with bright shiny faces in August so that this endeavor will be a great success.
