Connecting with Kyle

by Eleanor Guare

As most of you know, our church is blessed with strong leadership, musical talent, technology expertise and the beauty of flowers. Ed, Hal, Kyle, and Cilla have devoted themselves to keeping us connected as a community of faith. Kyle has been behind the camera as we worshipped from our homes this past year. I asked […]

Animal Companions

by Eleanor Guare

There is one joy we did not lose during the pandemic days of our masked and distanced existence. That joy came from our pets! We saw them on Zoom meetings, dozing in the background or jumping on laps and enjoying their moments of fame. In most cases, our animal companions were spared of COVID and […]

Bronwyn Masse: A Tribute

by Eleanor Guare

Bronwyn has retired from her role as church secretary, and we pay tribute to her for more than her administrative skills, which were many: managing the office, publishing the worship bulletin and newsletter, keeping up with the comings and goings of the committees and of course, supporting the pastor! We thank her for her dedicated […]

by Eleanor Guare

Renowned for her Monday morning “community donuts” handed out to grateful passers-by in Hardwick, Elizabeth Rossano has extended her heart and hands to us.

A Year in Review

by Eleanor Guare

The Greensboro United Church of Christ is bursting with song. The music of the East Coast Inspirational Singers brings folks to their feet and up to the altar, swinging and clapping to Oh Happy Day. Perhaps this jolt of inspiration was meant to help us through the remaining days of 2020. Many of these days […]

The Steeple and the People

by Eleanor Guare

“Here is the church and here is the steeple. Open the doors and see all the people.” Many of you know this finger rhyme. When I was little, this lighthearted pastime was typically enjoyed upon my father’s lap, probably to get me to giggle until he ended the rhyme with “Close the doors until they […]

The Little Food Shelf that Could

by Eleanor Guare

There are many good deeds a church community can do throughout the year. In a normal year, church events and community deeds are the subject for discussion and deliberation by various church committees. There are details. These things take time… Things are different now. Unemployment, fear, and hunger are stark realities in our community. What […]

The Little Food Shelf is Open!

by Eleanor Guare

The first time I ever saw a Little Library was on a foot path that traversed an oceanside community in Maine. Since then I’ve noticed them right here in Greensboro, alongside the Memorial Garden and on a path to Willey’s Beach. There may be many more. There is novelty associated with these little libraries, and […]

Village Fellowship

by Eleanor Guare

A little over a month ago I thought about creating a local map and directory that would help stores and services in the village deal with the flow of folks seeking beer, cheese, lodging, performances and other delights and necessities. The idea was nothing original, just a way to guide visitors and create a sense […]
