FCC presents “Angels In Human Skin: A Family’s Survival of World War II”

With thoughtful anticipation, the Board of Deacons and Outreach Committee invite the congregation to view the art collection titled “Intercession for Humanity” created by the Rev. Dr. Dirkje Legerstee.  Her art work and storytelling is a personal interpretation of her parents’ survival story of their escape during the Holocaust.  Her family story begins as a love story in ordinary times, of two strangers whose journeys collide at a Nazi munitions factory in Eberswalde, Germany.  Dr. Legerstee’s art work will be on display in the sanctuary for one week from March 17th to March 24th.   During the week on Thursday March 21st there will be a Meet the Artist Reception from 6 to 8pm. The sanctuary will be open for public viewing followed by a power point presentation. On Sunday, March 24th, Dr. Legerstee and Rev. Pleas will lead the morning worship service.  A luncheon and power point presentation will follow the worship.

Dr. Legerstee is an ordained minister form the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ.  Dr. Legerstee received her undergraduate degree from UNH and her Masters and

Doctorate of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School.  She has served local churches in the Massachusetts Conference for 27 years and is presently an Intentional Interim Minister.
