FIRST CHURCH IN JAFFREY
SUNDAY WORSHIP 10:30 A.M.
Ash Wednesday Service with
United Church on February 22
Once again, this year we will honor the first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday (2/22),
with a joint service with our friends from the United Church of Jaffrey. The service
will be held in the sanctuary of First Church at 5:00 pm and will feature songs,
prayers, reflections and the imposition of ashes. We hope you will join us as we
begin our Lenten journey.
Lenten Study Series:
The Character of Faith
Steve will be leading a study series on Wednesday afternoons during Lent. These
educational gatherings will be held at 4:00 pm in the Parish Hall beginning on
Wednesday, March 1, 2023. The theme of the series is the ‘character of faith.’ Using
simple biographies from biblical and historic characters of faith, we will explore and discuss how we might live as people of faith in our day and time. If there is interest, the series will also be available on zoom with links emailed out via eblast each week.
First Church in Jaffrey, UCC Annual Meeting January 29th 2023
At 11:37 a.m. January 29, Sam Greene, Moderator of The First Church in Jaffrey, opened the congregation’s 2023 Annual Meeting. Promptly half an hour later, after laughter, attentive discussion of financial affairs, and celebration of Sylvia Hamilton’s 21 years of service as First Church’s Clerk, the meeting adjourned. True to its heritage as a “Congregational” body, members of The First Church in Jaffrey actively participate in decision-making, planning, activities and care for members, friends and the wider community. Annual reports had been distributed in advance of the meeting. Explanations of financial affairs were provided by the Treasurer and chair-person of the Trustees. We sang, and we voted a number of times.
The business of the day was dispatched efficiently, effectively and promptly.
