Sad News
Judy Adams wrote the church this week.
Mark Adams passed away late yesterday afternoon (Saturday Sept 8).   My heart is filled with sadness but I am thankful for the wonderful 35 years (and 5 days) we had together.
With love and prayers.
A memorial service will be held in Boston on Monday afternoon, September 17, with a reception afterwards at the Common Room of their condominium.  Judy has reached out to Rev. Melius to participate in the service. 
More information will be provided when available.

Community Needs
John, a bright young friend of Charlie Hamlin works with handicapped teens in Concord MA.  He is looking for a furnished room in or near Concord, for about $600 per month. John is a graduate with degrees in theology and philosophy.  Charlie walks the Charles River with him in Waltham as we meet people, pray with them, and tell them the Gospel story.
Please reach out to Charlie Hamlin if you are able to help
