Ahn and Bodge visit

July saw the return of two of our previous pastors.  Seongmoon Ahn and his family returned to celebrate his ordination with us, his first congregation.

Arlene Bodge joined us for worship another Sunday and the congregation was thrilled to see her well  there as well as at the sunset worship service in Oak Bluffs that was part of the youth camp meeting that weekend.

We’ve been blessed with these lovely leaders!

Last “Pizza Night”…

Tom Ruimerman did it again!  Huge amounts of Italian food . Absolutely delicious. Jane made a beautiful platter of vegetables.  Salads by Margaret and Joan and Emily..Chocolate Sauce and garlic bread by Pam.  Set up help from the Chilmark-housed Landbank  summer interns.0612181824_Burst01

Some Bananagrams after supper.  Great help breaking down too.  Thank you Julie for a great spring season.  See you all in September.

June 10 Thursday Strings Perform

The Thursday music jam produced a string group that played at worship Sunday, June 10, 2018… Thank you, Emily, Irene, Jeff, Heidi, Pam and Charlotte!

IMG_1176But it’s not all strings.  Rev. Charlotte played her Bb clarinet..IMG_1171It was a bit crowded in the back of the sanctuary..Emily couldn’t  draw her bow out for a long note. You can’t even see her behind the post!IMG_1170IMG_1168All are welcome to come Thursday mornings to try out new songs and learn from each other.

June 5 Neighborhood Convention: The Yard

There was a good turn out to see the popular Yard appearance at the June Neighborhood Convention at Chilmark Church. If possible, the performances and explanations were even more inspiring than ever. DSCF0082

And below, more of the same exercise.DSCF0089Below are a couple of photos of an improvisation involving  maintaining contact .DSCF0094DSCF0097And the pictures of the final and excellent improvisation using words chosen from a dance AP by the audience, just were too poor to share.  You really have to be there..the pictures can’t capture the spirit and vitality.  Be sure to visit the Yard this summer especially the DANCE THE YARD performances in which these dancers appear.  You can find listings at www.dancetheyard.org.
