The Pumpkins are Coming ...
Mark your calendars for Sept. 30 at 9 a.m. The pumpkins will be arriving on the Hill, and we need lots of help unloading and setting up the patch for the next 31 days of pumpkin sales. All are welcome!
Once the patch is open for business, hours will be Sunday-Friday 12pm-7pm, and Saturdays 9am-7pm.
Pictures in the Patch
First United Methodist Church and Deb Bettencourt Photography will be hosting Pictures in the Patch on Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Church’s annual pumpkin patch on the corner of Routes 1 and 120. Drop-in sessions are available for families, individuals or small groups from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. No appointment is needed.
Package pricing begins at $25, and high resolution digital files are available for holiday cards or other uses.
In the event of inclement weather, Pictures in the Patch will be held on Sunday, Oct. 8 from noon-3 p.m.
Meet the Minister(s)
Pastor Thomas E. Demers (left) came to First United Methodist in July from Chartley UMC in Norton, Mass., where he had served for the last eight years. Pastor Thom has been a lay speaker in the UMC since 1992, and in 2007 answered the call to become a local pastor. He is married to Terry Demers, and together they have two adult children, Ashley and Jacob.
Pastor Thom has known Pastor Dave Arruda (right) for many years, and the two have worked together throughout their ministries in the southern New England region. Pastor Dave serves the Faith Fellowship UMC, which also meets in the building at 20 Hoppin Hill. The working partnership between the two pastors, and the two congregations, promises to make the Church on the Hill an active, welcoming and Spirit-filled community.
What can you do to help our brothers and sisters facing recovering from Hurricane Harvey and facing Hurricane Irma? Faith Fellowship UMC, our sister Church who worships right here in our building, is making Flood Buckets to be sent to UMCOR - the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Bring buckets or the needed supplies over to the Church building. See the link below for what goes into each bucket:
