Activities and events related to the observance of Advent at East Congregational Church in 2011.
After a long spring of planning and a long summer of construction, East Church's community gathered for a special (and scrumptious) Coffee Fellowship to dedicate the renovated kitchen.
At East Church's June, 2011 Annual Meeting, approval was voted to renovate the church kitchen.
A fundraising campaign, organized by Susan Harvey, secured pledges for the majority of the costs prior to the formal approval process.
The original footprint of the kitchen will remain unchanged. Most of the cabinets will likewise remain. However, most of the aging and unsafe appliances will be replaced with updated (and functional!) equipment.
The intention of the renovation is mission- and program-driven. The improved facilities will allow East Church to develop into areas we have previously been unable to address.
Other East Church members who contributed expertise and professional services to the project include Bob Gallagher (estimating and construction foreman), Aris Bakolos (architect), Kris Hodlin and Suzanne Lombardi (appliance selection and other commercial cooking advice).
Thanks to Susan Harvey for photos during the construction process.
It was a busy morning in Worship and a perfect day for a picnic afterwards.
It was an unseasonably cool and damp day outside, forcing the picnic to be held indoors, but the energy inside was bright. Children's Sunday coincided with Pentecost Sunday - a splendid pairing!
On Sunday, May 22, 2100 East Church welcomed four young adults into membership at the Service of Confirmation of Baptism. What a morning, filled with warmth, love and support for these newest members.
