Dennysville-Edmunds Congregational Church News

Another immensely successful public dinner was held at the Parish Hall on Friday the 18th.

There was also a most enjoyable County Wide Congregational Hymn sing held at the Marshfield Church, including some of the oldies-but-goodies, as well as a few that were new to at least some of the hymn singers.

The churches in Dennysville, Perry, and Robbinston will, as usual, be contributing donated cans of vegetables to be used in the annual Christmas baskets.  In order to provide Christmas dinner baskets for 300 families, 1,200 cans of vegetables will be needed.  We hope to be up to the challenge, but anyone can help out!  Also, if you know of folks who could use some extra food this holiday season, please contact Roberta Seeley or Bill Attick.

Rehearsals are unavoidably beginning late this year for the carols the Dennysville Festival Choir will be singing for the annual Ceremony of Nine Lessons and Carols on Friday, December 22nd this year, at 7 p.m.  The rehearsals will be held Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings beginning after the Thanksgiving weekend.  More singers are still needed, and anyone interested should call Colin Windhorst at 726-3905 or email <colinjcw@myfairpoint.net>.

This Sunday in Dennysville will be “laymen’s … and women’s” Sunday, with the Windhorsts taking a rare vacation, extending through the whole weekend.  It will be the first time the congregation has had to cope for themselves on a Sunday.  I do know the choir will be singing a Psalm under the direction of Kris Paprocki, who has directed on other occasions, but never completely on his own.   I’ll report on how it all goes.
