alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve
their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that
changed attitudes can aid recovery.

opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting

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.

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.

"Chasing Ice" documentary at COC

<- Go Back to Craftsbury Calendar of Events

Tuesday, January 16th - In Focus: Chasing Ice


Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.

In Focus, presented in partnership with the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, is a new film series focusing on climate change. This winter we will screen three documentaries that address what is happening to Earth’s ice, snow and water as more of the polar ice caps melt and the weather patterns become more extreme. Local experts and community leaders facilitate post-film community conversations that provide the tools and understanding for how to create positive change in our community through education, outreach, and action.

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.

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.
