On October 12, one church in Finland began ringing it’s bells at 5p.m. in protest of the continued destruction of the 3000 year old city of Aleppo. The bells are a demand to end the killings and devastation in that city. This organic movement has led to church bells ringing at hundreds of churches around the world at 5pm each day. The bells will ring until October 24, United Nations Day.
Deerfield Community Church will join with other churches around the world. Starting today, October 18 until October 24 our church bells will ring at 5 p.m.
We continue to pray for peace and hold those affected by this terrible war in our hearts.
The church’s food booth will be open for this year’s Deerfield Fair (September 29 through October 2) and Ham Fest (October 14 and 15). Come help out then, and also drop by for cleaning on Sunday, September 25 (noon to 3 p.m.). The booth funds DCC’s capital reserve account, which has been tapped lately due to of several building repairs. Come help us raise money to keep our beautiful church property in good working order. If you can help out please contact Jennifer Hurley (email@example.com or 340-5168). Thank you!
Remember that our church does NOT have worship in our sanctuary on the weekend of the Deerfield Fair. In the past we’ve led worship at the fair, but this year is different: On October 2 at 8:30 a.m. on the fairgrounds, DCC is sponsoring a time of music by a group from the Seacoast area: The Funky Divas of Gospel. Hope to see you there! [NOTE: The time is indeed 8:30, not 9 a.m., as was printed in the newsletter.]
