NORWAY — Upcoming services at The First Universalist Church of Norway, on Main Street, are as follows:

March 30, “Songs of Freedom,” by The Rev. Fayre Stephenson. This service is inspired by Bob Marley’s reggae music, the Rastafarians and Liberation theology. Come hear about the music, sing some freedom songs and find out what all of this has to do with us.

This year’s Earth Day Peace Concert will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 27, in the sanctuary. Admission is $5, to benefit the church belfry repair project, and will feature performances by Heather Pierson, The Norway UU Choir, Davy Sturtevant and other special guests.

Children in the Religious Education program recently received hands-on experience from Ben Woodward, a member of the church and also the ranger at Baxter State Park.

As the students learned about Vilhjalmur Steffanson, an Arctic explorer and anthropologist, Woodward demonstrated cold weather gear and preparation. The children learned about equipment, such as ice picks, Arctic tents, compasses, stoves and maps for travelling in wilderness territory in winter. They also learned about sled dog teams and the roles of each set of dogs in a dog team, and the importance of being prepared and well-planned for excursions.

Norway Universalist Church Religious Education program meets every Sunday during the church service, with activities for children ages 4-12. Older children are welcome in classes or at the worship service.
