In celebration of Music Sunday, the Chalice Choir has taken on the challenge of Requiem, a multi-movement masterwork by John Rutter. Rutter, born in London in 1945, is one of the most prolific choral composers of our time. The Chalice Choir will be accompanied by Ruth Iampietro, Nancy Kidd, and Patty Simon. Special singers include Rev. Sarah Person and Kate Melchior. Spoken words will reflect the joys and challenges of life in this beloved community: supporting one another through tough times, celebrating happy moments, and reaching for eternal, all-embracing love.

RE Children's ClassesIn May, as we Explore Beyond Our Walls, we will have an Indian and a Thai folktale. These will teach us about the golden rule making a difference in the world and about justice. We will be working on the gifts of thanks for the end of the year that will relate to our Gems of Goodness and also our lessons from Moral Tales. We will be preparing for the Youth Service scheduled for June 11. Parents Coffee HourWe will have Parents Coffee Hour
Rev. Connolly will be offering a reading and discussion group on Sundays and Wednesdays at 12:15 pm starting the week of May 14 and running for five weeks. The book we will be reading from is called What Do We Mean When We Say God? by Deirdre Sullivan. It gathers reflections from famous authors and ordinary people. Used copies are available from $5 to $7 per copy, including postage, from Amazon.com and other online booksellers. The goal of the class will be to help participants find an understanding of the word “God” that is appropriate to whatever stage of their faith journey
Youth GroupIn May we will shift Youth Group to the first and third Sunday evenings. We will continue our ethics curriculum to help us think about right and wrong and the shades in between. We are hoping to join in some spring activities that will bring us in contact with a variety of people and ideas that will support our learning. We are planning to participate in Pride Fest and in a social action project.
