 Our friends at church of the Holy Spirit in Plymouth thought we might be interested in this. Let our office know and Rev. Heidi will arrange for tickets.
Plymouth State U’s theatre program is performing Stephen Adly Guirgis’ 2005 play The Last Days of Judas Iscariot on the second weekend in March.  This thought-provoking, occasionally profane, sometimes wildly funny play re-imagines the fate of Judas in a contemporary setting.  Church of the Holy Spirit (and hopefully some folks from other local churches) will be seeing the show at the 2 PM performance on Saturday, March 9, and you are invited to come!  There is no group ticketing rate for this production, but if you want to be seated as part of the group, please let Grace know (996-1490, holyspiritrector@gmail.com) by Feb. 20.  You can also buy tickets on your own through the Silver Center box office (535-2787).  After the show we will adjourn to “Beyond the Bean” on Main Street to discuss the play.



From the office at St. Andrew’s: Office Hours:  Tuesday-Friday 9am-Noon
Winter Weather Advisory!!!  Please keep in mind during the winter when the weather looks questionable for safe travel to call the church before you leave home to check for schedule changes. If a storm comes in on Saturday evening or Sunday, I will make a judgment by 6:30 AM about whether to hold, cancel, or delay services. Cancellations will also be announced on WMWV radio 93.5. I will also send an email out to you if you have provided me with your email address. PLEASE do not travel if it feels unsafe to you. Enjoy a Sabbath morning at home and remember St. Andrew’s in your prayers.*******
