Training Active Bystanders (TAB)

There will be a training program for Bystander Intervention at our church on Thursday, July 13 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. 
Training Active Bystanders (TAB) is a two hour training designed to help participants recognize when they are bystanders, analyze the situation in which they find themselves, and decide on an appropriate action they can take to interfere with interpersonal oppression  and bullying as it happens.
 Active “bystandership” does not mean aggression but rather helping people in need.  The program presumes we can change our communities by encouraging active bystander responses.
Elizabeth and Marion Magill were first introduced to Bystander Training when they took the course through a collaboration of the Shir Tikvah Synagogue, Winchester MA,  the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland, and the South Acton (MA) Congregational Church.  They took the Train the Trainer course and have offered the material to their local communities.
Suggested donation is $10 per person.

The Trustees Work on the Fellowship Attic

Most Wednesday and Saturday mornings, a group of folks are working to re-insulate the ceiling of the Fellowship Hall.  Insulation comes in standard widths and is expected to fill the gap between beams that run the width of areas like the Fellowship Hall.   Above the Fellowship Hall, engineered beams were used instead of standard with lumber.  These beams look like the iron I-beams we are all familiar with.  They tend to be stronger and cheaper than standard lumber.

Unfortunately, their body is narrower than the standard beam and when placed at standard widths, and insulated with standard insulation, they leave a gap making it easier for heat to escape into Continue reading The Trustees Work on the Fellowship Attic

Search Committee Begins Reviews

 Review of Candidate Profiles.

The Search Committee has begun the next phase of the process of calling a settled Pastor.

After we submitted the “profile” of our church, the denomination posted a cover letter we had written, together with two photos we submitted on their website.  Prospective candidates can search the website for opportunities that they are interested in.   If our church meets their search criteria, they read what in essence is a summary of our profile.  If they have interest they can then request a copy of our full profile which is sent to them electronically.  It they are still interested they can then request a copy of their own Pastoral Profile be forwarded to us.  The conference reviews their profile first to be Continue reading Search Committee Begins Reviews
