Thank you from the Board of Trustees

Quote by Meister Eckhart: If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough. Background picture is ocean as nighfallMany leaders have been contributing time and love to North Parish over these summer weeks- and we owe them all a debt of gratitude. Among them are:

  • The summer worship service team, led by Helen Cymbala, guest musicians, and those who have led summer services
  • The North Parish 2.0 Task Force, who have been reacting to rapidly changing circumstances as they plan for the fall
  • The Personnel Committee, who has been working on recruiting, interviewing, and hiring a new youth coordinator, a new membership and communications coordinator, and new Sunday tech people
  • The Technology team, who continue to work out the technical support details of coming hybrid worship services and also an upgrade to the congregation’s data storage system
  • The People’s Pantry Team, who continue to procure, receive, sort, and distribute food for those in need
  • The Website Team, who rolled out a brand-new, exciting, fresh congregational web site. Check it out!
  • The Racial Justice Team, who has been holding a discussion of the book Caste this summer and making plans for the year ahead
  • The Climate Justice Team, who have been involved in important conversations with elected officials, as well as meeting (often virtually) to plan and socialize
  • The Gardeners, who weeded and reclaimed the back corner of the North Parish backyard, planting flowers and installing a new fence. It’s beautiful, as are the other gardens they maintain!
  • Barry Low, who donated a Baby Grand Clavinova, which will be a wonderful addition to potlucks, singalongs, talent shows and other parish hall events when we return.
  • The Building and Grounds Committee, chaired by Kim Adami, who have dealt with all things big and little concerning the building
  • Treasurer Nancy Sarro, who has been working with our auditor
  • The Caring Team, who continue to work with Rev. Lee to coordinate pastoral care and outreach
  • The Ferry Beach planning team, who are working on coordination of our October 1-3 retreat
  • and, of course, our staff, who continue to keep things moving in the summer and prepare for the fall
