Invitation to Christmas Eve Service Dec 24 at 7 PM

Hello Friends,
Please join us for our traditional Christmas Eve Worship Service at 7 PM! Christmas Hymns and special readings are a traditional part of this special worship service. Light refreshments and punch will follow in the Community House.
What to bring? We ask that Friends bring sweets and goodies to share. Beverages will be provided by Meeting. 
Can you Help? We need help with setup and clean-up. If three 3-4 Friends can set up tables and chairs following regular worship on Sunday morning that would be especially helpful. We need as many Friends to also help cleanup following fellowship after the Christmas Eve Service. (We try to arrange clean-up so that parents with younger children can head right for home following fellowship.) All are welcome to attend! 
Following Christmas…Special Notice: Please be aware that our annual refinishing of the wooden floors in the Community House will happen, as in previous years, the week between the holidays. The Community House will be closed to everyone (renters and our Quaker community) from 12/27-12/30. Some prep work will take place on 12/26, and Belanger Floor Refinishing will be in on Wednesday, Dec 27. If you have reason to enter the Community House kitchen or the Potter House during that week, please do not enter via the front door, but enter using the back doors by the rear deck. Please do not attempt to walk on the wood flooring in the Community House, which will be closed off with plastic sheeting to reduce dust, etc. 
Thank you, Friends,

Ministry & Council is sponsoring a potluck and time of fellowship on Friday, November 7, 2014 so that more Friends might be able to experience a little of the sweet sharing that happens at the Seekers Group gatherings each month.  Child care will be provided.

Everyone is asked to bring at least one canned good to donate to the local food pantry.

We will gather in the Community House at 6pm and aim to all share supper at 6:30.

After supper, children will be encouraged to settle in, in their PJ’s, with Katey Baker-Smith, who will read aloud stories from a selection of children’s books. A laptop with a movie suitable for children, and other “low-key” art-type activities will also be on hand to end the children’s part of the evening. Adults can gather over coffee, tea, and dessert to share a conversation facilitated by the Seekers Group on the topic of Simplicity.

The evening’s program will end at 8:30 PM.

Attached is a collection of quotes that might be helpful as a springboard, though one can never fully predict where the Spirit will lead the conversation! Please see quotes HERE.

The Seekers Group is a circle of people from our Meeting and the wider community who gather one evening a month for worship, conversation, and mutual spiritual nurturing.  Those in the group have found it to be a wonderful way to know one another on a deeper level and to be renewed in hope and faithfulness.  There has been a deep desire to share this joy and fellowship with more of Westport Friends.

Please contact Gretchen Baker-Smith for more information or call 508-997-0940.
