UPCOMING EVENTS

January Potluck at First Church
Please join us for our first winter Potluck on Friday, January 18th from 6pm-9pm.  Bring a game to play, a question or two for discussion, or not.  We will have a warm fire, to chase the January chill.  Bring a friend, come by yourself, but please join us! Folks with last names beginning A to H bring a main dish, I to O side or salad; P-Z dessert.  Feel free to bring a beverage of your choice; there will be warm cider available. Babysitting will also be available. Go to http://bit.ly/januarypotluck to RSVP and sign up!

Random Acts of Breakfast -- Repeatedly!
For all those First Churchers who would like to gather socially in simple ways, Ben Waxman, past chair of Standing Committee, offers the following standing invitation: Every Third Thursday of the month, anyone so motivated can come to Maria’s in Salem (10 Jefferson Ave) to join others for breakfast and casual, upbeat chat. There will be no kvetching at these gatherings! (Well, maybe there will be a little kvetching since we are New Englanders.)
General guidelines: Starts at 7:30 am. No RSVPs necessary. Everyone pays their own way. Sometimes there may be just 2 of us and other times maybe we’ll have 12 of us. No pressure to show up or stay long. Just an opportunity for us to gather, have pancakes, eggs and coffee, lighten our days, and get to know each other a bit better.
Next gathering: January 17, 2019, 7:30 AM. I’ll be there. Hope to see you!
