Support for Noank Baptist Church

 

As we enter this 175th anniversary year, our 2018 church budget needs a little more support!  If you have not sent in your pledge, please do so at your earliest convenience.  The budget is determined largely by the projected income from our supporters.  A pledge is a projected amount that you hope to give so that we can build the budget.  Without it, we are forced to make cuts to programs and expenses.  Please do your part to help maintain this ministry we share, so that we will have a strong year and a promising future.  We thank you for your generosity over the past year and we trust you will be faithful to the church in 2018.

Lost NBC Parade Float

Lost:  The 175th Anniversary Committee is looking for the parade float that was used years ago in the Noank Memorial Day parade so it can possibly be used during the 2018 celebration.  If anyone knows what might have happened to it, please contact Bonnie Banks or any of the committee members.

Meals for Cal Robertson

 

An updated sign-up sheet is located on the card table in the Narthex.  Please sign up if you can provide a meal for Cal, who is at St. Francis House.  If you have any questions, please contact Gloria at 860-536-7129.

Choir Practice

Here’s hoping that everyone had a safe and wonderful summer.  However, we soon will be getting back into a routine here at NBC with the following:

Senior Choir – practice will begin on Thursdays @ 7:15 pm in the choir room.  New members are welcome and veteran members are encouraged to return.  If you are interested in joining our Senior Choir, please contact Erin Wyman at 860-287-1666 or erinwyman@sbcglobal.net.

Youth Choir – practice will begin on Sundays @ 11:15 am.  We hope to see new faces this year.  If you are a student in grades 3 to 12 and like to sing, we are looking forward to seeing you.  Our choir rehearsals are each Sunday after worship and we sing in church every other Sunday.  Erin Wyman is our choir director.

Bible Study at MRHC

The Bible Study Group which is usually held each Wednesday morning @ 10 am at the Mystic River Homes Congregate, will not meet in September, but will resume on October 4.

Groton Community Meals

The Groton Senior Center has made their kitchen available four evenings a month to offer the free meals program.  Beginning June 6, the Groton Senior Center will serve meals on the first, second, fourth and fifth Monday of each month from 6-7 pm.  Meals will be served on the third Monday at Faith Lutheran Church.

Sacred Centering

Come to the quiet!  Set aside all your “doing” and make time for “being”.  Join in the sacred circle of candlelight, chant, silence and prayer.  Center yourself in the sacred.  We will meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 7-7:30 pm in the chapel.  All are welcome! 

Hats for Hope

Sandy Mansfield is asking for volunteers to knit or crochet hats.  Thisis the 6th year that we have distributed hats to the Cancer Society, hospitalsand various shelters.  We need hats for both adults and children.  If you can help or need additional information, please contact Sandy @ 860-445-6208.  She will supply you with the yarn and a pattern.  Also, we always need donations of yarn (no wool please).
