We had our first big fundraising dinner at our new home at the Christ Episcopal Church on Main Street, tonight – August 27, 2015! And, it was a HUGE success! We sold out of our planned number of tickets…..YAY!!! It was a delicious and ample sized plate with a beef on weck sandwich, corn on the cob, salt potatoes, a beverage, and ice cream! Everyone left full and happy! Here are a few photos:

Church Picnic – 06-28-15

Today we had our annual church picnic in our new home! We invited the Episcopalian congregation to join us and we had a wonderful day full of fellowship, food, friends, and fun!!! The first of I hope many joint gatherings between the two congregations sharing so much more than a church building!

Here are some photos (photo credits: Kim Pritt and Wilma Richardson)……just an FYI – lots more food was added to the tables after I snapped the photos, so don’t think we must have left hungry! Hahaha!!!

The centerpieces were done by Leslee Lockwood – she put beautiful pansies in a basket with the Episcopal flag and the Methodist flag stuck in the arrangements! What a great way to show our partnership and new friendships!

Family Night Supper – March 2014

Every month on the second Saturday, we gather in our fellowship hall for a monthly Family Night Supper. It is a pot-luck style dinner and always proves to be a good meal topped off with great conversations and fellowship! There is typically a program of some kind sponsored by one of the church committees.

Well, tonight we enjoyed a very special treat!!! The program sponsors for this month was the Worship Committee – which includes the Chancel Choir. Marie Follett – our organist and choir director – arranged for Gary Simboli, Albion High School graduate and current music director at the high school, to sing for us. Gary brought Sue Thaine, Albion HS graduate and current Presbyterian Minister in Penfield, with him. Together, they beautifully entertained us with several old standards, such as Moonlight in Vermont, Moon River, Someone To Watch Over Me, and others. It was a pleasure to listen to them sing and capped off a lovely evening! I won’t forget this night any time soon!
