The Villager Voice

It was an auspicious start to both the day and the month as a rainbow guided me up Route 9 this morning.  The far end of it looked to be positioned serendipitously close to our church building - I’ll look around for the pot of gold when I get to the office.

Holy Week is around the corner - next week is Palm Sunday, and we are delighted to welcome the return of our church choir.  They have been rehearsing for more than a month, and have some wonderful music planned for the Easter season.  Holy Week observance will also include services for Maundy Thursday April 14 at 7pm, a contemplative service for Good Friday at Noon, and of course Easter morning at 10.  (Whether or not there will be a sunrise service remains to be determined.). We will send out a full schedule next week, and all services will be hybrid, both in-person and online.

Looking ahead, our Annual Meeting takes place Sunday May 15 after worship; it will be the first we’ve been able to hold in three years.  And I know that Deb Calamari, our one-woman nominating committee, is inviting folks to serve in a variety of positions.  Please, when she asks, give the invitation serious consideration.   We are a small but mighty congregation with a part-time minister, a reality that means we need continued participation by all of us in order to maintain effective ministry to both our congregation and our community.

Finally, don’t forget this Sunday’s performance by the Essex Piano Trio in our sanctuary at 3:00.  The trio is excited to return to Chester, and I know the music will be delightful.  The suggested admission of $10 will be shared with Chester’s Camp Scholarship Fund.  I hope to see you there.
