Senior Activities

S.A.M. meetings are on the third Thursday of each month.

The next S.A.M. meeting will be at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 18, in the 2nd-3rd grade classroom above the church office. One of the topics of discussion will be activity ideas for August and beyond so come share your ideas.

Join us for a picnic at Bug Light on Wednesday, July 24.  We will meet at the church at 11:30 a.m. so bring your lunch with you.  If there’s bad weather that day, come anyway and we’ll “picnic” in the church.

We will go to Berwick and the Hackmatack Playhouse to see Mama Mia on Thursday, August 1, leaving the church at 12:30 p.m.  Tickets are $20, so RSVP and claim your seat today.

SAM also has a monthly newsletter, “Senior Moments,” that highlights our activities for those over 55 years old. If you would like  to be on our mailing list, just call the office  (799.3361).

A New Addition to Our Ministry Team

In 2013 we began the process of establishing a new ministry model for our church. Instead of calling another full-time associate pastor, we chose to divide the responsibilities into two part-time positions. During the summer of 2013 we hired Anne Fuehrer as our Director of Children & Family Ministries. In 2014 the Council approved the creation of a new position: Pastor of Member Care and Visitation. This person will share the responsibilities of making hospital visits and calling on our homebound members, plus will oversee our lay visitation program. This is a part-time position, starting at 10 hours per week and increasing to 15 hours in a few months. Because this is a new staffing model, we will have a trial period to make sure it is what we need in the life of our congregation at this time.

We are blessed to have Rev. Jill Saxby, a member of our congregation, filling this role.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
