Between Sundays is the weekly electronic publication of King's Chapel, Boston, MA. Its purpose is to inform members, friends, and subscribed visitors of events that occur between Sunday worship services.

Children's Sunday

Please join us for Children's Sunday on June 1st during Morning Prayer. This will be a day to rejoice in the work of the church school's children and recognize our graduating seniors. We will also be celebrating communion as is the custom in the Church School.

During the Children's Sunday worship service, we will be be using two very special communion plates. The communion plates (pictured below) were made by the children under the guidance of Emanuel Genovese, The plates will be used going forward during the Family Service at the Parish House. However, they will make a special appearance on Children's Sunday at the the church.

Pet Blessing
We enjoyed a wonderful pet blessing at the Parish House last Sunday. The purr-fect weather brought out many dogs (including a robotic one) and even a guinea pig nicknamed Penny. All the pets and humans enjoyed singing hymns, hearing prayers and receiving individual blessings from Joy. 

Boston Pride Parade
Boston Pride Parade:  Saturday, June 14, 2014 (Approx. 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
 
Mark your calendar! KC will field its fifth annual team of walkers in this joyful celebration of diversity and inclusion in the city of Boston. This is an easy walk and some meaningful fun and fellowship. Visit the Boston Pride website (www.bostonpride.org/parade/) or contact KC team champion, Gregg Sorensen (greggdavidsorensen@gmail.com) for more information, or to sign up. 

Invitation to a Habitat for Humanity Boston Build
In 2012 King's Chapel invited First Church Boston to build with us. Their participants helped complete our team. This year First Church Boston has invited King's Chapel to build with them on Saturday, June 28. The build will be in either Roxbury or Roslindale, to be determined shortly before the event by HFH Boston. The build will be from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. All abilities are welcome. If you are interested, please contact Peter Sexton at petersexton@alum.mit.edu or 781 383-9028.

Hearing Assists
We’ve resurrected the Hearing Assist Devices!  Many of us have trouble hearing in our sanctuary, which does not have amplification.  Small hearing devices are available at the back of the church, near the Civil War Memorial (immediately beyond the Vestibule, on the right, just as you enter the sanctuary). An usher also will be happy to provide one, and explain how they work.  Last Sunday we started a new campaign, to be sure we keep the batteries charged, and ensure that the minister wears the small microphone on her robe.  
 
Please try them, and let us know whether they work for you.  We want your feedback (no pun intended….).  For any questions, please speak to Junior Warden Bill Sears, Head Usher Anne Sexton, or to any of the ushers on duty.
