Worship at ECPC

  • East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Our commitment is to provide meaningful worship of God, through prayer, strong preaching, study of the Bible and especially through music.  Meaningful worship is an aspect of ECPC held dear by members, some of which have been with us since birth and also one that has drawn new members to ECPC from afar.  We follow a traditional order of worship and generally follow the revised common lectionary for Scripture reading. (A schedule that brings us in contact with all parts of the Scriptures every three years.)

Our service has three main sections: Gathering: which includes praise and confession, which sensitized us to our need for God's love and help.  In the second section we hear the Word through Scripture, and a sermon.  The third section is where we respond to the Word by sharing our joys, concerns, prayers for the world and those around us and offering our gifts to God.  Hymns are sung at the opening of the service, after the sermons and at the closing of the service.  Music is organ and occasionally piano.  Our choir sings an Anthem that ties into the theme of the day.

Yoga for a Happy and Healthy Spine at WW

<- Go Back to Craftsbury Calendar of Events

A happy and healthy spine is the foundation of all our daily movements. Is your neck or back a little cranky sometimes? Do you feel tension and stress after sitting at work all day? Are you unsure of how to strengthen your core safely? Practice this safe and gentle class to relieve the tension and stress that is holding you back. An interesting blend of yoga poses, spine education, postural awareness, stretching, strengthening and breath work... all while decreasing your stress! This class is for everyone, even if you’ve never done yoga before.

Kristi is a native Vermonter with a compassionate heart, calming voice, and encouraging and uplifting spirit. She began practicing yoga at 48 years old and was astounded with the changes in her body, mind and spirit. She is not a “super flexible yoga person,” understands the crankiness that comes with aging, and utilizes props to make yoga possible for everyone. After 25 years of providing physical therapy, she pursued her 200 and advanced 300 yoga teacher training with Daniel Orlansky at Yoga of Energy Flow in the Boston area. Her diverse training included Alignment/Iyengar, Kundalini, Meridian, Yin, Restorative, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, Kali Ray Triyoga, Vinyasa and Qigong. She warmly welcomes you to join her in sharing this beautiful, ancient practice to find peace, tranquility, and strength to weather all the changes that life brings.

Story Time at CPL

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

Sustainability + Soup: a film series

Join WonderArts VT and the Craftsbury Outdoor Center for a special film series about climate change with a focus on food, energy and waste. Shifting away from the traditional doom and gloom narrative, these films highlight actionable steps through personal journeys towards a more sustainable future. Come early to enjoy a bowl of soup, and stick around after the film for a casual conversation led Elly Ventura, Outreach Manager at Lamoille Regional Solid Waste Management District & Lamoille Soil.

No Impact Man

Follow the Manhattan-based Beavan family as they abandon their high consumption 5th Avenue lifestyle and try to live a year while making no net environmental impact, meaning no trash, no electricity, no cars, no toilet paper, no TV, and no buying anything new for an entire year. How do we cope with the constant stress and intermittent crises of such a rigorous way of living? Or, perhaps, when life is pared down, do some things become unexpectedly better and even easier?

Suggested Donation: $5

AA at UCC

united-church-craftsbury.jpg

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Story Time at CPL

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.
