Prayer Shawl Sunday

November 10, during worship

 

We lospage17image2964560t count a long time ago of the number of prayer shawls that have gone out – some all around the globe to make God’s love and comfort and healing power real and believable and tangible to those seeking healing or who are facing uncertainty or loss or anything else that leaves them feeling disconnected from the web of care. We will celebrate this ministry of connection, care and compassion on November 10th when we  bless shawls ready for distribution during morning worship.

If you would like more information about getting involved with our prayer shawl outreach, contact the church office (508-653-0971 or admin@firstchurchnatick.org). 

 

 


We Shall Remain

November 13th at 7pm

There is an essential part of American History that has been left out of the way we tell our story. Join us for a viewing of the first episode of an American Experience series called ‘After the Mayflower’. This episode may upend our two-dimensional stereotypes of American Indians as simply ferocious warriors or peaceable lov- ers of the land. It tells the story of the days following the landing of pale-skinned foreigners and of their rela- tionship with the Wampanoag natives. As we approach the 400th anniversary of these events, it seems to be time to acknowledge the ugly truth of the colonization of this land.


Thanksgiving Ingathering

Sunday, November 17th

Thanks to your regular donations and donations from others in our community, the Natick Food Pantry is able to help keep food on the table. This year the Natick Service Council will again distribute more than 150 Thanksgiving baskets to local families in need. We will focus our energy for Thanksgiving on gathering the perishable and other items NSC needs for the baskets that make the Thanksgiving meal feel like a bounty of God’s goodness! Please look through the list below of items that the Service Council needs for the Thanksgiving baskets, and on November 18th, bring whatever you can contribute to worship.

• Potatoes • Squash • Canned cranberry sauce • Onions • Stuffing mix • Turkey gravy in jar
