We had an extraordinary, spirit-filled weekend of fellowship and joy, culminating in Sunday Worship at Lyme Congregational Church with a 60+ person choir and almost 300 worshipers. 
Together, the Upper Valley Parish (Church of Christ at Dartmouth College, First Congregational Church in Thetford, Lyme Congregational Church, Norwich Congregational Church) and First Baptist Church of Lyme, welcomed 91 members of the congregation of Community Baptist Church of Englewood, NJ (CBC) to the Upper Valley.
Our theme was from Ephesians 4:4-6: One Body, One Spirit, One Hope. We may come from different backgrounds, speak in our own ways and have various skin colors and ethnicities but we have an opportunity to have unity. We can come together as One Body with all its different parts; it is One Spirit that calls us and we can have One Hope that collects us.
