Yesterday was “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday, the ELCA’s annual day of service, so the Advent kids decided to do a little fall planting and clean-up. The two large planters of chrysanthemums now on the front porch were the result of their labors, and a generous donation of materials. After beautifying the church entrance, they turned their attention to picking up leaves and twigs on the front lawn in preparation for Fall Fest later this month.
As “God’s Work. Our Hands.” Sunday coincided with Advent’s first day of Sunday School, the kids’ annual Pancakes With Moses kick-off event became Ice Cream With Moses. And, everyone was invited! After church, a sizable portion of the congregation headed to Kimball Farm in Jaffrey for ice cream, socializing, and a good deal of running around among the trees (those in the bright yellow t-shirts at least).
