In An Instant…

Posted by on May 21, 2017 in General News, Sunday Service Copies, Worship Services

Life can change in an instant, any event can push itself into our lives, which can cause us moments of shock, pain and deep concern. Our lives and bodies broken are in turmoil and just as quickly the process of healing begins yet again – leaving us forever changed. How do we live these tenuous lives never knowing what may cut us off and derail us from our mission? Are these significant sidetracks a wake up call, karma or just random mishaps? Facing into crisis, making meaning and recovering from crisis, Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty wonders on the implications of negotiating the dangers of living fully.

We Are Invited…Sunday at 11:30am to tour Loring Parsonage

Posted by on May 17, 2017 in General News

The Sudbury Historical Society invites the congregation of the First Parish of Sudbury to an after service tour of the Loring Parsonage (288 Old Sudbury Road) on Sunday, May 21.  There is, of course, a special connection between the parsonage and the First Parish of Sudbury.  In 1722 Israel Loring became the first minister of the church and remained minister until he died at age 90 in 1772. The SHS is working toward restoring and repurposing the Loring Parsonage for the Sudbury History Center and looks forward to showing the members of First Parish the plans and providing an update on how the project and fundraising has progressed.   We have only $250,000 to raise and need to complete our funding raising by the end of summer.

Sudbury Sr Center “FISH” program needs drivers

Posted by on May 17, 2017 in General News

Deb Galloway, director of the Sudbury Senior Center, reported that FISH (a network of volunteers that provide transportation to medical appointments to anyone in need, regardless of age or ability level) is currently in need of volunteer drivers. Volunteers would use their own vehicles to transport Sudbury residents to and from medical appointments. When a transportation need arises, a FISH coordinator contacts all volunteers to see who is available to help. If volunteers are not able to help on that particular day, there is no pressure from the coordinator, and the volunteer coordinator understands and respects that decision.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or learning more about FISH, please contact the Sudbury senior center at 978-443-3055.
