Gather for June Service Sunday June 24th after worship

The Board of Mission and Outreach says, ‚Äúthank you so much” to everyone who participated in our inaugural Service Sunday in May where we built 50 blessing bags for the homeless during coffee hour. Lifebridge Homeless Shelter in Salem was extremely thankful for our efforts and donations upon delivery of the blessing bags! We would also like to express our gratitude again to the Topsfield dentists who donated all of the dental hygiene products that were included in the blessing bags – Dr. Peter McAllister, Dr. Meryl Atwood, Dr. Gregory Carroll, and Dr. Thomas Carroll.

Our June Service Sunday will be held after worship during “Lemonade on the Lawn” on June 24th. This month’s activity will be to write letters of gratitude to Deployed Troops, Veterans, New Recruits, and First Responders via the organization, Operation Gratitude. You can learn about the organization, as well as tips for writing letters of gratitude, at the following link.
We will also provide these tips to you at the letter writing stations which will be set up on the lawn on the 24th.

As with the Blessing Bag Build in May, this will be an intergenerational activity which will be fun for people of all ages. Children or adults can feel free to draw pictures instead of writing letters if they prefer with the art supplies we provide. ***If you are unable to attend on the 24th, please feel free to review the letter writing guidelines at the link above and submit letters to the church office in advance. You can also hand them to a BOMO member at worship if you are unable to join us on the lawn on the 24th.

Service Sunday will return as a monthly activity for the congregation in September. We would love to hear about organizations YOU would like us to consider supporting at future Service Sundays. Please share your feedback with us by emailing BOMO chair, Jim Barnes at jhbarnes1@mac.com.

Thank you!
