Thought for the Week

Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems; wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges; wish for more wisdom.

Psalms Bible Study Continues Thursday!

Perhaps no other book in the Bible has been read and meditated on as much as the Old Testament book of Psalms. It contains songs of praise and prayers of lament, hymns celebrating God‘s faithful love, and the marvels of creation. You are invited to explore this wonderful book through a seven week Bible study continuing through June 20.

The study will be facilitated by the Reverend Barbara Purinton and Kathe Rhinesmith. It will take place on zoom from 7 to 8 PM on Thursday evenings. 

Registration is limited so if you are interested, please contact Kathe Rhinesmith at

Workbooks for the study are available from Marylou in the Church Office at a cost of $15.

June Congregational Meeting
Lamoille home health and hospice

Mission of the Month: Lamoille Home Health and Hospice!

During the month of June, our Mission focus will be on Lamoille Home Health and Hospice. Kathy Reno, a SCC member and Hospice Volunteer will speak to us on June 16th at the 9:30 service.  

Lamoille Home Health and Hospice's mission is to support health, independence and dignity through quality care in the home. The Agency believes that the highest standards of health and end-of-life care are fundamental rights. To fulfill this commitment to Lamoille County residents the Agency: provides high quality in-home care during episodes of illness, utilizing an interdisciplinary approach; works cooperatively with other organizations to provide a comprehensive health care system; respects the rights of patients and their designated helpers/families in making decisions about their health care; continuously assesses services and respond to the changing health care needs of the community. The Hospice Program uses a team approach to enhance the quality of life for the terminally ill and to provide support for their loved ones.

Are you looking for a rewarding experience? Consider becoming a Hospice Volunteer. Hospice volunteers provide much needed comfort to those who are receiving or in need of hospice services. Volunteers play a vital role in hospice care and are trained to understand the needs of the terminally ill patient. Volunteers also play an active role in providing respite for patient caregivers as the needs of the hospice patient can be great. Volunteers offer companionship to the patients and understanding to their caregivers.

LHH&H will be offering Hospice Volunteer Training starting September 7, 2023 and continuing each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 5:30 p.m.—8 p.m. through September 28. The training is held at Lamoille Home Health & Hospice, 54 Farr Avenue, Morrisville. There is no cost to you and all materials are provided. Please contact Charlene at 802-888-4561 or if interested. Space is limited.
