The 250th Anniversary Celebration
Happy 250th Anniversary to the First Church in Hartland! 
 
The Covenant was agreed to and signed on May 1, 1768, thereby establishing the church.
 
We are planning a town wide celebration on Sunday, May 20.  There will be a special worship service at 10:00am.  Followed by a picnic lunch (hamburgs and hotdogs will be provided) Please let Susan LeClerc know if you can bring a side dish to share, we will provide the serving dishes.  Live music!  The Hartland Historical Society will be providing a slide show featuring the church.  At 1:00pm there will be a presentation in the church (followed immediately by the Annual Meeting of the Hartland Historical society.)
Christian Education
First Church in Hartland's Sunday School program is for children aged 4+.  We Welcome everyone and you can join at any time during the school year (Sept. - May).
  •  NO Sunday School program is scheduled for the last Sunday of every month, and some holiday weekends.  Please check the CE Calendar or the Calendar link (listed below in the newsletter) for all dates.
All children will attend worship with their parents at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays.  After the Children's Sermon they will be brought across the street to the Parish Hall by the teachers and have a Sunday school lesson.  Please note that for some special events we meet at 9:00am.
 
A Nursery Room is available, in the back of the Sanctuary, for infants through kindergarten ages.  This room has a monitor so parents can watch the service and also take care of their children whom they feel are unable to sit through the worship service.
 
In the unlikely event of inclement weather when church is cancelled, please check WFSB.com "Closings and Delays".
