One Great Hour of Sharing

This month we are receiving the first of our annual special offerings – One Great Hour of Sharing. As you think about contributing, please remember that, in the midst of the despairing crises of this moment, this offering is our way of helping the United Church of Christ, on our behalf, to offer hope, by standing in solidarity with communities suffering and in need. Through Wider Church Ministries, the UCC fulfills its commitment to respond to a variety of global and local concerns by providing advocacy, sustainable development resources, long term disaster recovery support, and assistance for refugee and asylum seekers, working in collaboration with our partners locally and globally. If you write a check for this offering, please make it out to Weybridge Congregational Church, and put ‘OGHS’ in the memo line. Thank you for taking part!

Searching for our Pastor

The Pastor Search Committee has submitted its Church Profile to the Vermont Conference of the UCC and is actively considering candidates over the next few months.  If you have an interest, please go to: http://vtcucc.org/pastoral-openings/  and look for the Weybridge Congregational Church.

We Are Active!

We Are Active, Worshiping, and Celebrating Remotely – Join Us!

Sometimes we have our own “live” services and other times we join churches from across the country remotely.  We always gather by Zoom for fellowship, sharing, supporting, laughing and just plain catching up.  We have experienced many truly wonderful moments over these last few strange months.  And as hard as it’s been, we are thriving!  Please feel free to join us for any part of our Sunday celebrations.  To be placed on our weekly Sunday Service announcement and invite, please email jom@madriver.com.

Farewell Service & Celebration for Pastor Daniel – This Sunday, 11am

Greetings All,

We have much to look forward to this Sunday as we hold an outdoor, Covid-safe service, followed by a celebration in honor of Daniel’s time with us.  The weather is looking better all the time but if it’s not a large tent will keep us dry.  All are welcome!  Below are some important details and special requests:
  • Our service begins and 11:00 and our celebration will start immediately after at approximately 12:00 noon.
  • We will practice all state mandated Covid safe protocols.  Masks are required and social distancing will be observed.
  • Please bring your own chair, if possible.  We will have a few chairs available.
  • We ask those who can to park farthest away from the tent to allow those who need it to be closer.
  • A special, individually portioned luncheon will be provided.
  • We will have a table for cards or notes if you’d like to bring one.
  • This will be a time for reflection, thanks and bittersweet goodbyes.  There will be a time for anyone who would like to speak to share a thought or memory. 
  • If you have any questions or thoughts please reach out to John Myhre at jom@madriver.com or at 802-734-0423.
See you Sunday!
