New Hampshire Conference United Church of Christ Women’s Spring Gathering—May 11th, 2019!
The new date is May 11, 2019 for the New Hampshire Conference United Church of Christ Women’s Spring Gathering. These gatherings take place twice a year at different churches around the state. There has not been one in Manchester in many years. We are excited to host this event and let people know what a beautiful church we have here in our city. As well as using our beautiful church for this, our responsibilities are to provide morning coffee/tea and snacks/muffins/fruit and to prepare a lunch for each attendee. We also have to plan the morning Communion worship service along with music. Barbara Papagian is officiating the service.
The schedule for the day will go something like this:
9:30AM is registration, coffee, and set up White Elephant Tables.
10:00AM is the official welcome to First Congregational Church and worship with communion led by Barbara. An offering will be accepted, (we can choose where the money goes), and a workshop.
12:00PM is lunch, fellowship, White Elephant table (includes crafts and baked goods, announcements, and a workshop.
3:00-3:30PM is the closing.
Ladies from all around the state preregister for this event. Therefore we will have a good idea of the number of attendees before hand. Lots of help is needed. Many hands will make this event go smoothly. If you have never done anything with Women’s Connection before, here is your chance. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please sign-up on the church office window if you are willing to help in anyway.
A meeting will be held Sunday, February 3rd, following fellowship to get ourselves organized. That is when the break down of the different responsibilities will be discussed.
