Hale Farm, at 39 Hale Street, was the home of FPC’s first minister John Hale, and we make this pilgrimage annually to help Historic Beverly to care for the property. Our entire Sunday school– children of all ages and youth– and their families are encouraged to rake, and to take a brief tour of the Hale house. Children and youth must be accompanied by an adult family member or friend. Meet us at 10am on 11/10 at Hale Farm, and please bring your rakes! In case of rain, this event will be canceled. Note: the leaf-raking is in lieu of Sunday School; there will be no Sunday School at church on 11/10. Please sign up ASAP with Diana Niethamer so that we can properly accommodate all the children who wish to attend (and bring enough treats to share with all) by texting or calling 978-239-8439 and telling her your name and the names of the kids you are bringing.
