The Clarendon Hill outreach committee is planning a family-friendly get-together at Great Brook Farm in Carlisle on Saturday, September 14 from 1 to 4 pm and we are hoping that you can join us!
A group of us went last year and had a great time picnicking and seeing the sights (which includes an active dairy farm, barn tours, hiking trails,and an ice cream stand). For more information and directions, see their website: http://www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/dcr/massparks/region-north/great-brook-farm-state.html. The only charge is a $2-per-car parking fee (not including any ice cream or other treats you want). We will also have car pools leaving Clarendon Hill at 12:30 and returning about 4:00 pm.
Please RSVP to email@example.com to let us know if you can join us for our first fellowship event this fall!
There will be a prayer meeting after coffee hour on Sunday, September 22nd in the Green Room. Jesus said, ‘When two or three are gathered in my name, I am there.” Bring your prayers about whatever joys or concerns you may have on your mind and in your heart. All are welcome.
