Sunday April 29th there will be a pasta dinner at the fire station to raise money for Rosina and Kay Wallace. Some area churches are pitching in making dessert. If you’d like to donate baked goods, please contact Jill Chase at 244-1455 or email@example.com. At the moment, we’re not sure exactly what or how much is needed, but information will be shared as it comes in. Thank you!
On Top of the World by Emily Mitchell
Emily Mitchell will be sharing a talk with the community during the Sunday service on April 29th. Worship starts at 10 and ends by 11, followed by coffee and a snack. All are welcome!
That afternoon, from 2 – 4PM, she will offer a workshop: work with paint, paper, and stencils to create an amazing, colorful and vibrant layered springtime inspired piece of art, which you will be able to take home that day! All art supplies are provided. Cost is $30. Sign up for her workshop by emailing her.

We continue in the tradition of participating in an ecumenical Easter Sunrise Service on Easter morning (April 1). We meet at the parking lot of the Blush Hill Country Club just in time to see the sun rise over the lip of Hunger Mountain, 7:00 am. I will be planning and leading the service this year. We try to keep it short (it’s always cold!). It is a beautiful, fairly quiet moment as we await the boisterousness of the rest of the morning to come!
Along with the responsibility to lead the service, we have the pleasure of serving a warming breakfast to our brothers and sisters in Christ who have braved the cold and the early morning hours. Please sign up to help on this Sunday.
Full Easter Celebration
At 10:00 am we will be called to order by the sounds of a 16th century dance of joy played by a brass quartet and the organ! The brass will hang around to accompany our hymn singing and be joined by a few other instrumentalists in a rousing rendition of The Strife is O’er by the choir. Happy, happy Easter it will be! I hope you can join us.
Bach Organ Marathon
On Sunday, March 25, 2018 starting at 1:30 pm, the fourth annual Bach Marathon will fill the sanctuary of Christ Church in Montpelier, with the glorious music of J.S. Bach. Five organists, plus some piano students, will perform. All donations will benefit the music scholarship program in the Montpelier Public Schools. Come and go as you please; there will be refreshments; tell your friends!
Hoffstra University Chamber Choir
This fine ensemble will be performing in our sanctuary this evening!
From their Facebook post comes this blurb: Please join us for a fabulous evening of music, with special guests from Harwood High School! Featuring works by Jake Runestad, Veljo Tormis, William Billings, and many more.

This Sunday, March 25 is the last chance to order Easter Lilies. They are $13.50 each payable to Proud Flower. You may please take them home after Easter worship to enjoy, and even replant in your garden to bloom again in the summer of 2019.
