Our Affirmation:
Love is the doctrine of this church
The quest for truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve the needs of all beings,
To the end that all souls shall
Grow into harmony with the Divine
Thus do we covenant with each other
And with the source of our being

 
    Our Annual Meeting will be on May 21st at 7pm

Please join us in-person at 21 Fairground Rd  Springfield, Vermont or on Zoom.

Share The Plate
We are restarting the pre-pandemic system for doing Share the Plate. The first Sunday of each month will be Share the Plate Sunday.  All of the money collected will go to the designated organization. The Social Action Committee selects the recipients. Please speak to them if you have suggestions. If you want to give more than the cash you have in your pocket you can write a check made out to the church with Share the Plate in the memo line. A check from the church will then be sent to the designated organization.

Ellen Allman on behalf of the Social Action Committee

April Share The Plate:

In recognition of both Women's History Month in March, as well as the ongoing war in Israel, the Social Action Circle has chosen Women for Women International as our April Share the Plate recipient. Since 1993, Women for Women International has invested in the power of over 500,000 women who are forgotten — the women survivors of war and conflict — to learn the skills they need to rebuild their families and communities. Their vision is to create a world in which all women determine the course of their lives and reach their full potential. Their Palestine Emergency Response involves partnering with local organizations in Gaza and the West Bank to provide essential aid to women and their families, including hot meals from a community kitchen; winter clothes, shoes, and blankets; and trauma-informed counseling.
