Serve New England
I am going to be starting a chapter of Serve New England ( ) here at ANTS and am looking for volunteers
to help in the running of this chapter. The program is designed to
promote volunteer service by offering deep discounts on the highest
quality grocery, meat, and vegetable items to community-minded
individuals willing to volunteer 2 hours of their time each month to a
worthy cause. Volunteers would help to take and distribute orders.
Distribution takes place one Saturday each month. If you're interested
in helping or would like more information, please contact me at . Thank you, Jen Walker

full time pastorate in the American Baptist Churches of Vermont and New
Hampshire. Donna graduated with a Masters of Divinity (with honors) in
May and begins June 23rd. She will be installed in the church late

Donna asks that you keep the church and her in your prayers as they
walk on their new journey together.

Collective Breath Project
I need your help!!

I am an artist in residency here at Andover Newton School of Theology
and I am embarking upon an experimental project with the help of the
ANTS community. I would like to record the sound of everyone's
individual breath. I will then take the information gathered and create
a sound installation on the ANTS campus featuring the accumulated sound
of your breath!

The recording process will take no more than 10 minutes…and will be
super fun!

Please come and participate at….
Faith Johnson's Studio #34, 3rd floor, Sturtevant Hall

Studio Hours:
Mondays 10am-2 pm, Tuesdays 6pm-8pm

OR make an appointment…I am very flexible!
