Confirmation Informational Meeting
Dec 15 @ 11:30 am

Because of the smaller numbers in this year’s 8th and 9th grade classes, we are considering combining both grades (and any older students) into one Confirmation class. All interested confirmands and their parents are invited to a brief informational meeting after church on Sunday, December 15th, at 11:30am, in the Earl Rice Room (upstairs in the Parish House). If you have questions or want to discuss the possible combining of grades, feel free to contact Rev. Crouch.

Girls’ Night Christmas Celebration
Dec 19 @ 6:00 pm

Join us at Carolyn Keilig’s home (434 Rollins Road, Hopkinton) to celebrate at the Girls’ Night Christmas party! Women of all ages are welcome. It is a great chance to take a break from Christmas preparations to connect, celebrate, and reflect with old friends and new. The setting is informal, the mood is light, and there is no agenda: we get together just to gather and share some stories and maybe a few laughs.

All are welcome. Bring an appetizer or some Christmas cookies or something to drink or just yourself. Call Judy Dibble if you need a ride (520-4844) or if you need directions call Carolyn (219-3297).
