THE PUBLICK HOUSE COOKS for many organizations as a way of giving back to our community. Each sponsored organization receives a portion from every dinner served. Our “turn” is again scheduled for St. Patrick’s Eve, March 16th, for the traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner. Adult donation: $13.00; children 4 and above: $5.00. Tickets are available in the church office and from Jim Dunn (508-347-3019). Checks should be made payable to Sturbridge Federated Church. Seatings are at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Is Lent a bit of a muddle for you? Want to learn more about the various special days, traditions, their histories and meanings? Discover which Lent practices might fit (or not) into your life in our small group discussion each Wednesday of Lent from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Pastor Janet will be our facilitator and we’ll share a simple supper of soup and bread each week. All ages and stages are welcome!!! Childcare is available by prior request. Please let us know if it is needed. The suppers begin February 25th and will run through April 1st (no fooling). More questions? Please see Pastor Janet or Connie Thompson, Diaconate Chair.
If there is over 4” of new snow on the ground or if the storm is classified as a blizzard or Nor’easter, or an ice storm, worship on Sunday will be cancelled.
