ABOUT THE MUSIC

This Sunday the St. Nicholas Chimers will play for prelude “King Jesus Hath A Garden” a Dutch Song arranged by living English composer John Rutter (b. 1945).

We welcome back drummer Eric Reburn from Portland.  He will play first on our opening hymn as we sing.  For offertory, Eric and I will play the traditional African-American spiritual “Hush, Hush, Somebody’s Calling My Name”.  For postlude, we will play another spiritual “Every Time I Feel the Spirit”.  These songs are in honor of “African-American History Month”.  Some of the drumming will be in African drumming style.

 

After Coffee Hour join us for instruction and playing in a drum circle.  All are welcome!  It’s fun!  Anyone can do it!  Mr. Reburn has offered his services free to us for conducting a drum circle on a regular basis.  So the next will be March 3.  On that Sunday we will also welcome back Michael Katz, classical guitarist.  So, let’s celebrate through music and percussion!

SPRUCING UP ST. NICK’S

We would like to get a “team” together to start to repair/paint the small “chapel room” for Sunday school (Sara would like to bring her children and Michael Dill is also interested in a Sunday school space).  Hopefully we will only need to get together for a few nights. We need to patch small holes, spackle the screw holes and paint. We can get together Friday or Saturday afternoon or Saturday nights for maybe a couple hours at a time.

Anyone interested in helping??   Please let Kelly or Cynthia know.  Thanks!

 

 

The Green Power monthly sign-up sheet for 2019 is posted on the Bolger Board (thank you to several of you who have already signed up!).  As a reminder, this is an invitation to folks who want to volunteer to provide the monthly fee ($36 additional per month) on our CMP electric bill that supports generation of electricity from Maine-based renewable resources.  This helps reduce our portion of fossil fuel use.  Thank you for your generosity.

 

 

Memorial Service for Harold (Hoppy) Hopkins will be held on Saturday, April 6 at

St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Yarmouth.

 

 

OUTREACH

Our Souper Bowl of Caring on February 3rd, raised $126.50 to be donated to the Project G.R.A.C.E. Fuel Fund.  And on February 10th, St. Nickers’ purchases of Equal Exchange Chocolate Bars generated $133 donated to Konbit Sante to support that group’s work in Cap Haitien, Haiti.  A Big Thank You for generosity and support!  Nancy Nickerson
