Please welcome to the pulpit this morning our new Pastoral Intern, Alec Rogers: who will be working under Pastor Jack beginning in September!  Alec and his wife, Julie, and their two sons, Mack & Duncan, live here in Manchester.  Alec has been pursuing a Master of Divinity degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts while running their business in Augusta, the Quality Inn & Suites Maine Evergreen Hotel on the Whitten Road.  Alec has served on Manchester’s Select Board in the past and has garnered the respect of the community over the years, and he’s looking forward to serving the Lord and discerning his call among friends and neighbors at MCC.  The Board of Deacons and the Executive Committee have given their endorsement to Alec’s internship.

New Members: The following people have been recommended for membership in MCC and will be received on Sunday June 29.  We are so blessed to be able to welcome these friends into our fellowship.  Roger Bachelder, Connie Best (Associate Member), Randall & Cynthia Burnham, Ellen Corbin, Dick & Cheryl Cutliffe, Ira & Marjorie Ellis (Associate Members)

“All You Need is Love” is the title of a sermon series Pastor Jack began April 27th. We are continuing looking at the different kinds of love taught in the Bible and how we can become more loving and forgiving, and how we can form, sustain and deepen our relationships.

Summer Coffee & Punch Schedule: The Social Committee would like some help providing coffee and punch for July & August.  Just coffee and punch (no snacks).  If you would like to help there is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in Johnson Hall or call Jean Davenport (207-446-6611).

Pew Cards: Visitors, please let us know you were here by filling out the Pew Card in the pew rack and drop it in the offering plate.

August 11-15: Wilderness Escape VBS! Mark your calendars for this summer’s VBS: August 11-15 (the week after the Manchester Rec. Program ends).  We will caravan with Moses and the Israelites as they escape Egypt and watch God guide and provide. (See insert)
