See what East Congregational Church has been doing in 2012.
September 9 was quite a morning. We were introduced to Pastor Mark Seifried, our Interim Minister. We celebrated a "Blessing for the Shared Ministry of East Church and Pastor Mark." We had our bags and backpacks blessed. We had Church School Registration. AND we had an Ice Cream Social during Fellowship Hour. What a joyous way to say "hello" to the energy of Fall.
On Sunday, August 5, 2012 Rev. Eric and Rev. Sara Marean conducted their last service at East Church after four years with us as Settled Co-Pastors. The two received gifts of clerical stoles during worship and later during a special coffee fellowship were given a memory book and a video "time capsule" produced by Susan Harvey. Thanks to Susan also for these wonderful photos of a very moving day in the life of East Church.
Rev. Sara organized several fun outings over the summer of 2012 with an emphasis on Massachusetts history. This outing to Plimouth Plantation was recorded by Lanelle Fleming. Thanks for sharing these photos, Lanelle!
We enjoyed a glorious weekend, after a week of rain. In spite of competition from the gala Milton 350th celebration, attendance was great!
Fun images that don't belong to a specific event or category.
On Easter Sunday we celebrate life, hope and transformation. During Worship the stark, bare cross is transformed into vibrant, vivid life one flower at a time by by each person in the congregation. Thank to Carly for the flowers. Thanks to Jen, Brian and the Jr. Youth Group for filling all the eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt following Worship. Thanks to all who joined in the rousing Hallelujah Chorus following the Benediction. And thanks to God for no rain!
