Every Friday we send out our weekly announcement’s via email. This email includes community events, volunteer opportunities, small group announcements, etc. If you would like to receive the weekly announcements, please indicate on the form below.
We also have an email forum that allows members of the community to send out needs and information to the whomever else is signed up to receive forum emails. Usually the forum is used to announce a need for help (for example: “looking for people to help me move a couch on Saturday”), an informal get together (“we are going for a hike if anyone wants to join us”), or in a listings sort of way (“couch for sale”, “looking for a room to rent”). If you’d like to be included in forum please indicate in the form below.

Fall Retreat, Sept. 7th-8th -THE WAY OF JESUSwith Guest Speaker, Kevin Fitton
When we follow Jesus, we are promised rest for our souls. “My burden is easy, and my yoke is light,” he said, “and you shall find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:30, 29). But often, we put ourselves ahead of God and become a little like the Pharisees, who placed heavy burdens on others and themselves. How can we recognize when we are getting caught up in the burdensome patterns of the Pharisees, and how can we deliberately choose another way—the rest-filled way of Jesus? Join us as we gather for a special time of renewal and community as we consider what it means to follow the way of Jesus. For more information and to register, visit www.wellchurchvt.com/retreat.
New Small Group: Boundaries — Tuesday’s at 7pm, Starting 9/18
“Why do I say ‘yes’ at times I want or ought to say ‘no?’”
“How do I tell others that I have limits, preferences and a calling? Will they still love me?”
“How do I avoid burn-out and live the full life Jesus came to give?”
Most of us have asked these questions at one time or another…maybe now! In a small group this fall, will be exploring these issues as they relate to the topic of personal boundaries. Starting on September 18th and going for 5 weeks, we will be meeting every Tuesday night at 7 PM at 150 Cherry St. To supplement our discussion, we will be reading the books “Boundaries” by Cloud and Townsend. Please contact Jon Ayers at Lifelinesguide@gmail.com for more info and to RSVP. Space limited.
