Easter Week Events at Tyson Congregational Church — Margo’s Plymouth Report

Reprinted by permission of The Vermont Standard.

4/9/17

John and Bea Wheeler celebrated John’s birthday at the Gill Home.  I understand it was quite a gathering and everyone loved John’s hat!  Coming right up on 4/13 is Cheryl Bishop’s birthday and at the end of month, 4/29, be sure to congratulate Kathy Lynds.

Tom attended the breakfast at the Bridgewater Congregational Church this past Saturday.  In addition to the delicious food, he told me that it was an outstanding social event.  In addition to church folks, there were people from town and many from the surrounding community.  How nice it would be to have such a sense of camaraderie in Plymouth.  Anyone interested is seeing what could be done here to bring our town together for a pleasant time of socializing?

This is a busy week for most churches and Tyson Church is no exception.  We have a simple supper downstairs at 6:00 PM on Maundy Thursday, the night Jesus gathered with His disciples before His betrayal.  Then we adjourn to the sanctuary for a service of remembrance of Jesus on the way to the Cross, including the serving of the Lord’s Supper.  We leaving quietly, pondering, but come back together on Easter to celebrate the Resurrection.  As a symbol of the new life, we decorate our wooden cross with a multitude of fresh flowers, which can be taken home.  All are welcome!

Plan to attend the Reach Out Luncheon in the Community Room at the church on Thursday, 4/20 for quiche, salad, bread, peach cobbler.  The speaker will be Teresa Ennis talking about her trip to Senegal

Let the New Day Dawn
A new day has begun.
Where is the Son?
You call us to the garden –
The empty tomb and resurrection.
Though our hearts may be heavy –
Our minds burdened with cares
You can fill us with Your beauty
And bring Light to our despair.
