December Monthly Mission:  Jesus’ gift to the

Lipson Cancer Foundation – patient services

The Barre Betterment Committee is going to be offering to deliver a dinner from the Community Kitchen to people in the Barre area that may be in need.  It will only be on the first Thursday of the month beginning in September. Please contact Cyndy to make arrangements.  585-590-7503.

We invite you to join us for an uplifting and inspiring morning service at West Barre Church on November 5 at 9:30 am. Our special feature for this service is none other than the renowned Gospel quartet – The Torchmen Quartet!

The Torchmen Quartet is a Canadian Southern Gospel music group that has been active for many years. They are known for their powerful harmonies and uplifting gospel music and we are excited to have them share their gifts with our congregation.

So, bring your friends and family, and let’s come together to celebrate faith, love, and music. This is an excellent opportunity to rejuvenate your spirit and connect with your community in a meaningful way.

We can’t wait to see you there! Please spread the word and share this event with your loved ones.

Let’s make this a morning to remember, filled with faith and harmony. See you there!

We will be receiving a Love Offering to help with the ministry of The Torchmen.
