The Heart of New England
Worship service location change: We have been informed by Saint John's that we will not be able to meet there for the next 6 weeks. To keep you safe and others around you we are changing our services to be completely online: we will not be meeting in small groups for midweek or Sunday services for the remainder of March.
This Wednesday 3/25, Men's Midweek will be online at 7:30PM, on Facebook live and Youtube live.
International Day of Prayer and Fasting: Join us on Thursday, March 26 for an International Day of Prayer and Fasting. Given the events unfolding in our world at this time, please join our global church family on Thursday, March 26 for a day of prayer and fasting. We will pray for each other, for those experiencing sickness, for those experiencing loss, for those who feel alone, for those who are afraid, and for those who are seeking God. It is a time to pray that we can truly be a light and that the good news of Jesus can be made known to a world searching for hope.
Helping Hands Project: If you are in need of assistance of any kind, or if you would like to be a helper, please reach out to Tom, Sydney, or your Bible Talk leader. We are eager to help in any way.
God is working in and through these times: To keep our eyes focused on God and to help us stay connected, send us your good news! We want to share it with the congregation so that everyone may be encouraged. Send your news to Sydney at email@example.com.
Contribution: We will be collecting contribution every week. We encourage everyone to sign up with Tithe.ly as it will be so helpful during this time! Contribution can also be mailed to John Clark, 1 Brendon Drive, Northborough, MA 01532. Please do not mail cash.
Women’s Day postponed: We have decided to postpone the Women's Day that was scheduled for March 28th. Thank you to all who have put in time and talents thus far. We will have an amazing event when it comes!
