In this emergency
During the weeks of the COVID-19 restrictions, Sunday worship is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Members and friends on our mailing list receive Zoom invitations. If you would like to attend the service online, send your email address to email@example.com and you will be added to the invitation list.
Confirmation and faith formation meetings are held on Zoom.
As we pass through days of isolation, members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to pray and meditate on scripture and to explore some of the spiritual treasures of our faith.
Keep in mind those who live alone. Telephone calls and emails between members and friends of the church keep connections strong and support those in need.
When routines change, patience and forbearance help us get along. If you are together for long periods of time in the house, take advantage of the time. Enjoy one another.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, members of Peace might be able to help. Pastor Johnson’s cell is 978/460-1118.
About 25 Peace volunteers and members of the Filipino-American community in MA, supportive of the literacy mission of Pinoy Reading Buddies (PRB), finished packing 7 boxes (27″ x 18″ x 17″) yesterday from 11am to 4:00pm. With just a few minutes to take a quick lunch break, Sharon Jones, Carter Vogt, and a few male volunteers (Dan Greenstein, Warren Green, Bob Holmgren, Alan Vogt, Jonathan Moretz and others gamely hauled in about 40 heavy Staple-size boxes of books, from the truck parked outside in 90 degree temperature. Then the books were sorted according to reading level and then size, and packed neatly to make sure that there will be room for about 2500 books. There were volunteers who prepared 118 packages of school supplies, filling up each ziploc bag with notebooks, rulers, pencils and a storybook. Boxes of crayons and sharpeners will complete each gift pack, and teachers were given notebooks and packs of index cards as well. These donations were meant for young Typhoon Haiyan survivors in who went back to school called Mabuhay Elementary, located in
Marabut Samar, Philippines.
Typhoon Haiyan broke the record as the strongest typhoon ever to to hit the planet and devastated the tiny islands of Leyte and Samar in the Philippines. At least 6000 people died and left in its wake thousands of homeless, injured and hungry. S ome volunteers happily inserted bookmarks in each book, adorned with bright ribbons, and hole-punched for hours by Aidan and Keira Moretz, Heather Moretz and Corinne Fryhle.
The other volunteers who came included PRB supporters Mitch Fledman, David Greenstein, Bertha Coliflores and her sister, Norma; Cecile Mercado and her daughter, Niti; Monica Jimenez, Greg Hodge. Other Peace volunteers included Kim Ho and daughter, Gabby; Doris Wald and Deb Vogt.
Thank you all very much. Special thank you to Althea Korte who donated some funds to help pay for the shipping cost.
