Dan Smith’s Farewell Sunday, June 9

May 8, 2024

On Sunday, June 9, we will celebrate Dan’s 20 years of ministry at First Church in Cambridge. Our Morning Worship will include special moments (and special guests) to lift up the journey we have walked together, to express our gratitude for the experiences we have shared, and to acknowledge the end of this pastoral relationship. Then, we’ll gather for a Farewell Party, where we will share a light meal, toast Dan, and shower him with gifts and heartfelt gratitude for his presence among us these last two decades.

It takes a village to throw a party!
We are planning a special party for Dan, and we need your help! In addition to your contributions of messages, pictures, and remembrances  to the Leavetaking Team’s project, we welcome your helping hands to set up, run, and clean up our after-worship celebration. This includes an invitation to provide cupcakes for a scrumptious cupcake dessert buffet!
