BOARD OF CHRISTIAN ACTION
The Board wishes to thank the members of the congregation for once again helping us to reach our goal for a community outreach program. We requested donations of BAKED BEANS to be used for the upcoming Pig Roast being held to benefit the Aurora House. You have responded graciously as always. Members of our Board will be cooking the beans and helping to serve them at the September 17th event to be held at the Legion on Trimmer Road.
Our sincere thanks to all.
On or by August 1, there will be “no parking” on West Avenue. The reason is that the NYSDOT will be posting the Canal Bridge on Union Street with a weight restriction of 20 tons from Monday August 1 to September 1, 2011. The village and town had to come up with an alternative way for TOPS and other major businesses in the community to bring their trucks into the village. That alternative brings their trucks from Ridge Rd. to Hinkleyville Rd. and proceeds south on to Washington Street, over the Adams Basin bridge and left on Lyell Street, which goes directly into the Spencerport DPW road that exits on to West Avenue in the village. Because these trucks are huge, there will not be enough room for people to go both ways, if there are cars parked on West Ave. Hence, the new rule regarding “no parking” on West Avenue, hopefully, temporarily.

PIG ROAST - BAKED BEANS NEEDED
Beans, beans …..
Well, we all know that rhyme!
So, this is what we are up to. The Board of Christian Action, along with many other churches and community organizations, are involved in a Pig Roast Fundraiser for the Aurora House which is being held on September 17th at the American Legion on Trimmer Road. We will be providing baked beans, and would like to invite the congregation to help with this purchase. We ask that the super duper size cans be purchased, if possible, that is the 7 lb. 5 oz. #10 can. However, any size or brand would be greatly appreciated. Picnic baskets will be provided in the Fellowship Hall for your purchases.
Are you interested in a quiet place for prayer and reflection? The Board of Religious Services has helped organize a Prayer/Meditation space for Sunday mornings. The library has been set up as “quiet space” for personal prayer/meditation during the half hour before services on Sunday mornings (9:30-10:00 winter schedule; 8:45-9:15 summer schedule). A CD player is available for quiet background music (as is a CD – but feel free to bring your own contemplative CD if you wish). A sheet with an “orientation” and instructions for the CD player is on the coffee table in the library. Feel free to experience your own personal prayer time!
Commencing Sunday, July 3, the summer worship hour
will begin at 9:30 am. This will remain in effect
through Sunday, September 4.
