The Deacons would like to thank Betty Doubek for all her hard work over the past six years. Betty has just completed her second consecutive term as a deacon, serving as the Deacon Moderator for the past two years.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the special offerings during December. The Christmas Joy Offering, which included the entire Christmas Eve offering and other contributions, amounted to $1,613.70. This is a significant increase from last year. The money will help to support clergy families and other church workers in times of need. It will also help students at racial ethnic schools and colleges get an education and find their calling.
The Noah Challenge
What is the Noah Challenge? Massachusetts Interfaith Power and Light is offering customers of major electric or gas utilities, who live in 1 to 4 unit buildings, an opportunity to have a free energy audit of your home. The energy audit will show you ways to lower fuel bills and be more environmentally friendly. There is also information on rebates, loans, and Federal tax credits. The congregation with the most sign-ups wins a free environmental stewardship assessment. More information and sign-up sheets are available at church. You can also log on to http://www.MIPandL.org and click on the Noah Challenge.
