A Christmas Story at Amicable!
Happening at Amicable...
Sunday Service, March 22, 2020
In light of the rapidly changing developments and after conversations with Amicable's leadership we have determined that it is best to cancel worship services at Amicable and many of its activities for two weeks to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). This means we will NOT be having worship through the end of March in the sanctuary, and at that time we will reassess.
However, Vaughn and Bill will be in the sanctuary Sunday mornings filming music, scripture readings, sermon, prayers and benediction which will be posted on line. Once we have the details, we will email a link for this "virtual service".
This is not an easy decision as we believe the significant roles that churches play in our common life include witnessing to living without fear and living in solidarity with those most in need of care.
We have made this decision out of concern for the health of all members and friends of Amicable Church, particularly the elderly population, and the admonition to avoid bringing groups of people together in one place as social distancing shows a significant impact on reducing the spread of this virus.

Homeless Health Kits
Continuing our homeless awareness theme, we will be collecting items during the month of March to place in easy carry bags for the homeless. The objective is to have at least 60 bags prepared for distribution to the homeless at the end of March, when shelters typically close.
If you would like to contribute, we will be looking for the following items (monetary donations will also be welcome):
toothpaste small calendars
toothbrushes protein bars
deodorant wet wipes (small pack)
disposable razors hand sanitizer feminine products white socks notepads/pens/pencils $5 McDonald gift cards
These items may be dropped off in the front entry of Amicable Church. Please call the church office at 401-624-4611 with any questions. Thank you!
Amicable Church is hosting a book group at the Tiverton Public Library on the third Wednesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. The theme is "Spirituality and Politics" with the goal of encouraging conversations about faith and politics. The January discussion will be held on Wednesday, March 18, 2:00 p.m., at the Tiverton Public Library. Those interested are asked to read "How Fascism Works: the Politics of Us and Them" by Jason Stanley. Copies are available at the library.
It is our hope that by hosting this book group at the Tiverton Library, people who may have been hurt by the church community of their youth or distanced themselves from church completely, may find a spiritual community connection and begin to see church as different from what they experienced and find a way back to a faith community.
