 We are calling September 17 Spider Sunday because we are being treated to the presentation “Orb Weaving Spiders and Their Webs” by Dr. Ed Tillinghast at 9:30 AM between services. Refreshments will be served.

Ever wonder why spiders weave their webs the way they do? What are the secrets to how they catch and hold insects? Here is your opportunity to find out!

This Sunday, Dr. Ed Tillinghast will present a talk for all ages on “Orb Weaving Spiders and Their Webs”. Ed Tillinghast, UNH professor emeritus of zoology, has studied spiders for more than 35 years. Tillinghast has been one of the most important figures studying the chemistry of silk, especially in understanding how liquid glues in webs operate. (source: http://www.unh.edu/research/blog/2012/05/ed-tillinghast-unhs-spider-man)

Dr. Tillinghast plans to have some live spiders to view which will be safely contained so even the faint of heart can enjoy learning about this insect that is an important member of our environment. 

Hope you and your family can join us for this presentation.

History of Lee Church Congregational

posted Aug 23, 2015, 6:46 PM by Henry McTague

Our Heritage ~~Non-denominational religious services were conducted regularly in Lee before 1850 in what is now the Grange Hall. In 1861 a small new chapel, on the site of our sanctuary, was built so as to have a house in the community entirely devoted to worshipping God. The Church was officially organized on December 3, 1867 with 14 members.  The Parsonage was built in 1874. The Lee Missionary Society, formed in 1906, has evolved into the Women’s Guild.  The Sunday School predated the building of the Chapel.               

 

The Church joined the United Church of Christ in 1961
