Mindfulness with Macie
Wednesday, March 20
6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Church Parlor
Teens: Are you Stressed? Overwhelmed at times?
Join Macie Bridge (sophomore at Trinity College) as she shares how mindfulness and her Christian faith have helped her manage stress. You’ll learn about the roots of mindfulness in the Jesuit (Christian) and Buddhist traditions, how it fits into our lives as Christians, and how we can use it to handle stress from school and life. You’ll even try out some techniques and practices so you can start your own mindfulness practice.

Ladies, if you’re wondering where the guys are on March 20, there’s a good chance they’ll be hanging with the rest of the fellows at The Billiards Café in Ayer. This is the first gathering of the men’s group, and we are starting with an evening of fellowship. There is a sign up posted in the downstairs hallway. Please sign up so Gary can make the reservations for tables that evening. All the cool cats are going to be there!

You Are Invited – Actors of All Ages Needed!
Religious Drama during Worship
March 31
Religious drama has been part of church worship since the medieval period, and we’re doing it on March 31. We need actors, thespians, hams, and especially those who have always wanted to get in front of a crowd but then chickened out. The service will include a narrated dramatic interpretation of the scripture reading. There will be no lines to memorize – Narrators say it all! No one is too old, nor too young. Not up for being out front? We’ll be needing a hand with some of the preparations and “off-stage” assistance during the service. There will be one general rehearsal after church on March 24. If you’re interested, find Gary at Fellowship Hour or email him (gary@uccgroton.org).
