Friends Day 2020
 
The Friends of Bruton Committee is pleased that the long and complex installation of the new pipe organ is completed. The church is now open daily so that Bruton Guides can resume welcoming visitors and share the story of our historic church. It is through the interaction between visitors and Bruton Guides that many people learn of and become a part of Friends of Bruton, Our Worldwide Congregation.
    With over 2,000 Friends of Bruton from throughout the nation and indeed around the world joined with our more than 2,000 local Bruton congregants, Our Worldwide Congregation exceeds 4,000.
    Last spring we celebrated our 7th Annual Friends Day with an all-day recognition of the momentous events of 1619 at Historic Jamestown and Jamestown Settlement. Plans are now underway for the 8th Annual Friends Day that will soon be announced in the fall issue of The Bruton Fount. You will want to mark your calendars now for Saturday, May 2, 2020!
    The Cornerstone Circle, the extension of Friends of Bruton, which through annual sustaining contributions permits the Friends Committee to sponsor projects that will make a lasting contribution to our church. Two projects are currently in the beginning stages of development. One is an oral history project that will capture recollections of senior parish members who will help preserve the history of Bruton from as far back as the early 1940s to the present. A second project under consideration is to publish a book of selected articles from the past six plus years of The Bruton Fount. Both projects will require funding from Cornerstone Circle membership that is based on an annual contribution of $100 or more per person.
    Under active consideration by the Committee is a trip to the Holy Land next year. Rector Chris Epperson, having recently returned from a tour there, is looking forward to leading a group to visit the land where our Judeo/Christian heritage was born.
    Because of our increasing activities, the Friends of Bruton Committee believes it is time to expand our working Committee from its original seven members to eleven members. Members of the congregation who are interested in contributing to the ongoing work of Friends of Bruton are invited to contact Hilary Cooley at either (757) 345-2252 or hcooley@brutonparish.org to let us know of your interest.
