The following are announcements from the service bulletins through Sunday May 20.

 

Mother’s Day Shell Jewelry Today: Many thanks to Kathy E. who has worked with our youth to create several shell jewelry pieces to be sold in celebration of Mother’s Day. The sale will take place in the narthex today after the Divine Service. All proceeds will go to the mortgage reduction fund. Any unsold items will be saved and sold at the Holiday Bazaar in November.


Coffee Hour in the Narthex: The next Coffee Hour in the Narthex will take place on Sunday May 13 in celebration of Mother’s Day.


Sunday School & Youth Group: Sunday School and Youth Group will conclude the regular academic year on Sunday, May 20. This will be a regular lesson Sunday in addition to the mites market. Beginning Sunday, May 27 we will start a special summer program of short lessons, hymn singing, activities, crafts to be sold at the Holiday Bazaar in November, service projects, and have some outdoor fun.


Pew Sisters Women's Study: Please consider joining us in May to study the 5th and 6th chapters of Demystifying the Proverbs 31 Woman from Concordia Publishing House. We will meet on Tuesday, May 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall. If you'd like to go out for dinner prior to the meeting, please meet at the Ninety-Nine in Williston at 5:30 p.m. (expense on your own). Lap babies are welcome.


Summit Club: On Thursday, May 24, the Summit Club will be visiting the Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge, Vermont. Admission to the farm is $5.00 for adults. We will meet at church at 10:00 a.m. for carpooling. After our visit, we will have lunch in Middlebury.


Please mark your calendars: Saturday, June 9th, from 9:00 – 2:00, we will have a retreat on Death, Dying, and Resurrection. In light of the resurrection of our Lord, we need not fear death. How are we to think of it as Christians? How might we prepare? How do we offer comfort to those who are being drawn near to the Lord? These topics and many others will be covered in this retreat. Don’t be afraid. Come and receive as we unpack the peace which surpasses all understanding.

 

Save the date!

June 10 is the next Voter’s Meeting.

 

Updated CLC Directory: Thanks be to God, several new members have joined CLC since printing the Directory last year. Therefore, we will be printing an insert to add to your current directory this summer. If you’ve had a change in any of your contact information, please email the church office at clcvt@comcast.net. If you’re new within the last year to CLC, someone will be reaching out to you to confirm your contact information.


May Mission-of-the Month: Camp Pioneer’s Operation Purple Camp:The National Military Family Association’s Operation Purple camps are open to military children with a parent or guardian from any service branch. Priority is given to children who have a parent or guardian who incurred service-connected injuries or illness on or after 9/11 or will have a parent or guardian deployed during a 15-month window. This summer camp aims to help military kids experience carefree fun, teach them about coping skills to help deal with deployment-related stress, and foster relationships with other children who know exactly what they are going through. Pioneer Camp & Retreat Center, 65 acres located on the shore of Lake Erie in Angola NY, is one of 12 nationally recognized locations to sponsor Operation Purple Camp. “Camp Pioneer” was founded in 1945 and is owned by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) / Eastern District. Camp Pioneer’s current Executive Director, Pastor Alex Knowles, knows first- hand the sacrifices of our military families because he served two tours in Afghanistan as a Chaplin. 100% of our CLC donations will go to supporting military family campers in this very loving, gospel-filled environment..
