Lighting of Tree of Peace and Love
Because of the tremendous response last holiday season, a Tree of Peace and Love will again be located on the lawns of both the North Waterford and Stoneham Congregational churches. The trees will initially be wrapped in colored lights. For a $5 donation a light bulb will be changed to white and the wish/prayer or name of the individual it has been given in honor of will be written on an origami crane and hung on the tree. The collection will help support the mission and ministries of the Oxford County Parish churches in North Waterford and Stoneham. Rev. Doretta Colburn invites everyone to participate and watch as the trees evolve into all white lights, symbolic of the spread of Peace and Love in our communities and the world The Tree of Peace and Love will be lit at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2, following the regular worship service at the North Waterford Church located on Five Kezars Road (off Rts. 35 & 37, opposite Melby’s Market). Everyone is welcome to attend the tree lighting. Christmas carols will be sung and refreshments will be served.
