It's Our birthday Year!
Your 375th committee has two great kick-off events planned for September.
First, on Sunday, September 18, Rev. Lise will lead a trek from the rock on Old Meeting House Lane marking the site of our first meeting house. Meet at the rock at 8 am for a brief re-dedication and then choose to trek or drive to church for our regular 10 am service. Please look for more details in this issue of the Spire!
Second, the following Saturday, September 24 we will have an all-church potluck supper beginning at 5:30 pm in the Parish Hall. Rev. Lise and Scott Babcock are researching important dates in our church history and will help us begin a time line around the Parish Hall to mark our pathway. Bring your own important dates associated with the church, yourself, the community, the nation and add to the history! Again, look for more details in this issue of the Spire.
And save two dates in October – Sunday, October 9 at 3 pm for a free organ concert performed by King’s Chapel music director, Heinrich Christensen and coordinated by Dexter Robinson and the Music Committee; and a fabulous Old Fashioned Harvest Picnic on the church grounds (organized by Lindsey Houston and Elizabeth Robey) with assistance from the RE committee on Saturday, October 15 from noon to 3 pm. Invite family and friends to both of these celebratory events!
What a year we have planned! The 375th Committee looks forward to your support and involvement.See our 375th Anniversary page for more details!
Wednesday, September 21
Joanne Howard will present a lecture called "Cemetery Lore" to kick-off the year for The Alliance of first Parish of Norwell. If you missed Joanne's walking tour of the First Parish Cemetery on August 21st, you will be able to enjoy the same stories of past parishioners that reflect what life was like during their lives and significant National events that impacted them… and all without leaving the Parish Hall. The meeting will begin with refreshments at 10 am. Alliance Meetings are open to all friends of First Parish of Norwell – come celebrate the start of our parish's 375th anniversary year with us.
