Upcoming Congregational Meetings
There are two upcoming Congregational Meetings of which you should be aware:
There will be a Special Congregational Meeting on Sunday, September 16 2018, following the Sunday Worship Service. This meeting is being called by the Board of Trustees to consider their recommendation that the Church enter into a ministry partnership with the Weymouth Food Pantry.
Per our church bylaws, the date of the Autumn Annual Meeting is Sunday, September 30 2018. This is a Congregational Meeting following the end of the fiscal year, at which we consider the budget proposed by the Trustees for the upcoming fiscal year (Sept to Aug). On September 30 we will also receive a report from a committee of the Church Council, relating to action on the Associate Pastor vacancy. The Congregation directed the Council to take such action at a Special Congregational Meeting on June 3, 2018.
All members and friends of the Church are encouraged to attend both Congregational Meetings.
New Member Sunday
October 7, 2018 has been set as the date for reception of new members. If you are interested in becoming a member of The First Church in Weymouth, please speak to a Deacon or to Pastor TC. The reception of new members will take place at the Sunday Worship Service, via profession of faith and an assent to our Church Covenant.
Used Clothing Drop-Off
There is a shed in our parking lot for donations of clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, drapes, and stuffed toys. The shed is managed by St. Pauly Textile, Inc., and your donations are delivered to those in need in our local and wider communities. Your donations are NOT shredded. The First Church in Weymouth also benefits by receiving 4 cents per pound of clothing collected, which further aids us in serving the local community.
We ask that you observe the signs on the shed detailing what items we can and cannot accept. Please bag and tie your donations. There is also a receptacle on the shed from which you can take a receipt for tax return purposes.
