Celebration of Thanksgiving

Celebration of Thanksgiving

Bridgewater Council of Churches presents

Celebration of Thanksgiving
Tuesday, November 20th at 7 PM
Bridgewater New Jerusalem Church, 2 Bedford Street

Everyone is welcome as we gather together and share our blessings with one another. The title of the sermon is Unity not Uniformity: So often we speak of being "one", but what does that really mean? As a people of faith in such a polarizing time, are we being called to be a uniform people or are we called to be united as beloveds with God, with creation, and with one another? how does our faith lead us to be unified in love while still celebrating our differences and gifts? The service will be led by the Reverend Alicia Velez-Stewart of the Bridgewater United Methodist Church.

There will be a time of fellowship and food following the service. Please bring a donation of a non-perishable food item to be shared with the Bridgewater Food Pantry.

Song and Story Hour

Come join us at 7 on Friday night, November 16th at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, 50 School Street, Bridgewater, MA. Remember how much you used to like being read to? Be part of that magic again. Bring along a favorite passage you’ve enjoyed or maybe something that you’ve written yourself. Those with a musical bent are welcomed as well. You do know that music soothes the savage beast, so your talents would be greatly appreciated, I’m sure. Enjoy a “screen-free” time with others who are enamored of the written word. Who knows ~ maybe you’ll be enlightened or even amazed! Maybe you’ll be doing the enlightening and amazing! If you’d like to bring a snack to share that would be lovely, however, it’s totally optional.

Hoping to see you there! If you have any questions or comments, please email bobbe@goddesspcs.com.

The holidays are HERE! This can be a stressful time and there are moments where it feels as though someone’s stepping on your very last nerve! The struggle is real my friend!

During the holidays do you often feel like:

· You have no time for yourself?

· You don’t have the peace within your soul that the holidays should bring?

· You’re not able to embrace the hustle and bustle and let your inner child come out and play?

It’s time to break the cycle and start making the holidays fun again! I’ve got some tips on how to survive the season that I’d like to share with you. 

Join Bev Giuffre of To Rise Above It All on Tuesday, November 27th at 6:30 PM for a Holiday Stress-free Workshop. You’ll come away that night with tools that will get you ready to face the holidays with excitement and childlike wonder again! You’ll be armed with some new and helpful ideas on how to host and not hate it; shop without losing your mind; and still have time to relax, eat cookies, drink hot cocoa, and watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!! Let’s have some fun my friends!
