In Gratitude for the Life of Pauline (Polly) Jewett

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Pauline (Polly) Jewett,
a long time pillar of the congregation alongside her husband, Jack.
Polly was a founder of the Meeting House Quilters, for many years a delegate
to the Litchfield South Association and the Connecticut Conference,
a stalwart member of the church’s Homeland Circle, and a Deacon.
Before Alzheimer’s confined her to a nursing home near her daughter Jackie, in New Jersey,
Polly was a leader in extending the extravagant welcome of Christ to all who came to worship with us,
and put her faith into action as an outspoken social justice activist.

We will be celebrating her life during the Sunday worship service at 10:00 on August 19, 2018.

Memorial contributions in her name, can be made out to First Congregational Church for the Jack and Polly Jewett Fund that provides support for the Sunday School and camperships to our UCC Silver Lake summer camp programs for children.
