Church Family News

The whole congregation of believers was united as one—one heart, one mind! They didn’t even claim ownership of their own possessions. No one said, “That’s mine; you can’t have it.” They shared everything. – Acts 4:32

 

This is a page where members can share any family news.

On June 12 our former Associate Pastor Elliott Munn (right) was installed as Pastor of the Vergennes Congregational Church in Vergennes, Vermont. (The pandemic had a way of delaying lots of important events!) Pastor Emeritus Geordie Campbell was the guest preacher for that wonderful celebration. Also included in the service that day was the baptism of Elliott and Elizabeth’s daughter Lydia. Greg and Liz Oman-Wlifrid provided the music and were named as Godparents to Lydia. What an awesome day!

We were saddened to learn of Patricia Furnivall’s passing. In classic “Pat” style, she celebrated her 94th birthday on July 1, 2022, and died later that day. RIP Pat. A memorial service was held on July 9, 2022.
Thanks Doey Barnett for this photo of Pat with Bob Cave from just a few weeks before her passing. (Bob is holding her purse so she can have a treat!)

“Anne Stone and I had a lovely visit this morning. Her son Rick took the photo. She’s had a few physical setbacks, but her spirit is buoyant as ever.” -Susan B., July 2022
