Over a year in the making, the new women’s fellowship is beginning! Please join us on Saturday, October 31 at 9 am for our first getting to know you session! We will have some healthy breakfast items provided for you! No cooking necessary! The plan is to have a fun discussion about our group, our faith and how the spirit moves us! During the initial talks last year some things that were of interest to you all were sharing hobbies, taking field trips to interesting places, having discussions about current events and faith, and having guest speakers. We will firm up a schedule and discuss where we’d like the group to go at our initial meeting. If you have any questions, or if you have input but cannot attend, please get in touch with me! I am really looking forward to this new group in our church!!! Love and prayers, Jennifer Hurley (340-5168).
On Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. Deerfield Community Church will join with other churches in Londerry (near the Mack Apple Orchard) to raise money to help families struggling with hunger both locally and around the world. 25% of the funds raised goes in equal shares to the participating churches. Deerfield’s share will benefit the Deerfield Food Pantry.
In previous years Deerfield has been well represented with walkers in all age groups. This is such a worthwhile project as well as a pleasant afternoon. This is a leisurely walk, not a race. All are welcome to join. If you don’t wish to do the walk, please consider financially supporting enthusiastic participants.
Need more information? Contact Edie Kimball (firstname.lastname@example.org, 463-7485).

Many thanks to Deerfield Community Church, UCC for hosting this event and supporting the playground project. We are so very grateful to everyone who cooked, baked, and donated food. Also, a huge thank you to everyone who volunteered to help set up, greet, serve, work the kitchen and clean up. Many hands make light work is a true statement…and, as a bonus, we had a lot of fun working together as well. Thank you again to DCC and all who gave of their time and food, as well as everyone who came to eat and support the fundraiser. The names are too numerous to list here, but you know who you are. You have all been instrumental with bringing us another step closer to making the dream of the playground hill slide a reality for our kids!
