To the First Congregational Church in Winchester (FCCW) community, current and former youth, and friends and family of Judy’s:
You are cordially invited to Judy’s Farewell Celebration!
It will take place in Chidley Hall at FCCW on Saturday June 11, 2022 from 5 to 7 PM. The event will feature speakers, presentations, entertainment, food & drink, and excellent company!
If you would like to attend (and we hope you will), please register at the link below so we can plan accordingly.
In addition, there are several other ways for you to participate in the farewell activities:
- Add pictures that you have of Judy to our shared Google file. We will use them for some fun presentations at the event.
- Contribute to a “purse” — it’s customary for a congregation to present a cash gift to a departing minister. If you would like to contribute, please make out a check to FCCW, write “For Judy” in the memo line, and mail it to FCCW, 21 Church Street, Winchester MA 01890 (or drop it off in the office).
- Write a personal card to Judy with your expressions of thanks and gratitude (please don’t include checks for the purse in the cards). You can mail your card to the church or place it in a designated basket in the church lobby. We will present all the cards to Judy at one time.
Finally, don’t miss the worship service on Sunday June 12, which will be Judy’s last day. We are planning some special activities and will have our end-of-year picnic outside, where we will send Judy off with love!
Such fun and sadness all at the same time,
