About Methuen
map
Methuen Massachusetts is a community of 40,000 people located in the Lower Merrimack Valley. Voters in Methuen amended the town charter in 1993 to enact a mayor and 9 city councilors form of government. Although a city government, the community wishes to be known as "The Town of Methuen".

Industrial wealth is seen today in the mill buildings and also in the estate and civic architecture of Methuen's millionaires. The granite walls and turrets that extend through central Methuen are outstanding features and monuments to the millionaire benefactors as well as to the immigrant laborers who erected them 100 years ago.

Methuen combines suburban sub-divisions and urban neighborhoods with farm settings. Methuen Mall is a regional shopping center and Methuen's industrial parks are home to many large and prominent companies. Residents of Methuen believe that their community has something for everyone.

The When Hannah Prayed Conference for women is a movement for New England that began in the living room of our founder. Dr. Smith has always had a desire to minister to the lost, the rejected, the abused, the unwanted, and the invisible woman. The When Hannah Prayed Conference reminds women that just like Hannah, there is promise inside of them but they must believe, they must be determined, they must hope and above all be resilient enough to not quit until the promise is birthed.

Author Event: Jo Piazza O'Mara

Please join us in welcoming author Jo Piazza O'Mara to the Nevins Memorial Library! She will be sharing her debut novel, Garden of Hope which is set in her hometown of Lawrence, Massachusetts!

The robust Agosti family shared almost everything with each otherlaughter and good-natured teasing, genuine love and loyalty, and lots of Mamas mouthwatering Italian food. But a devastating illness and the discovery of one, decades-old secret tore father and son apart and threatened to undermine the once-solid family foundation of three generations. Told from the perspective of oldest sister Trina, Garden of Hope celebrates the joys of a small-town life, the privilege of being surrounded by Gods love in a Christian family, and the peace and redemption that comes when forgiveness happens and joy is rediscovered. - from Goodreads.com

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & BeyondThe history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent. This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans. We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.

Toight's selection: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
In 1959 an American missionary and his family move to the Belgian Congo. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is an epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

Toight's selection: ~~Things Fall Apart by Chinue Achebe
One of Achebe's many achievements in this acclaimed novel is his unsentimental rendering of Nigerian tribal life before and after the coming of colonialism. Achebe sketches a world in which violence, war, and suffering exist, but are balanced by a strong sense of tradition, ritual, and social coherence.

Stride Into The Light, 5k Walk-Run
In an effort to raise awareness surrounding mental illness, we want to start a tradition not only for First Church Congregational, but for the community. In recent findings the number one challenge the city of Methuen is facing is substance abuse; number two is mental health issues. Walking or running for a cause, whether it is to help support a local organization that supports these efforts, or to help others understand the issue at hand, is one of the most helpful ways to bring awareness to the community. And this is exactly what we are trying to do. On April 18, First Church will be hosting their first 5k walk-run open to anyone that would like to join us. In collaboration with Level Ground MMA and McLean Hospital Center for Depression Research, we want to help inform those who would like to know more about mental illness and the effect it has on members of their community. How much do you really know? The National Alliance on Mental Illness states the following: A mental illness is a condition that impacts a person's thinking, feeling or mood may affect and his or her ability to relate to others and function on a daily basis. Each person will have different experiences, even people with the same diagnosis. Recovery, including meaningful roles in social life, school and work, is possible, especially when you start treatment early and play a strong role in your own recovery process. We hope that you will join us to learn more about this topic that impacts many of those in our community directly. Please consider signing up and Stride Into the Light with us!

Book Babble

This month, our teen book group has chosen to read The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal:

A young seamstress and a royal nursemaid find themselves at the center of an epic power struggle in this stunning young-adult debut.
On the eve of Princess Sophias wedding, the Scandinavian city of Skyggehavn prepares to fete the occasion with a sumptuous display of riches: brocade and satin and jewels, feasts of sugar fruit and sweet spiced wine. Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness creeps through the palace halls. A mysterious illness plagues the royal family, threatening the lives of the thrones heirs, and a courtiers wolfish hunger for the kings favors sets a devious plot in motion.
Here in the palace at Skyggehavn, things are seldom as they seem and when a single errant prick of a needle sets off a series of events that will alter the course of history, the fates of seamstress Ava Bingen and mute nursemaid Midi Sorte become irrevocably intertwined with that of mad Queen Isabel. As they navigate a tangled web of palace intrigue, power-lust, and deception, Ava and Midi must carve out their own survival any way they can.

Our final meeting of the year is going to be a big one! We will be voting on books to read next year (when we start back up in September), having a celebration for the graduating seniors, feasting over pizza and soda, and (if we have time), discussing Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern:

Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.
When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

Come join the fun and especialy help plan our book list for next year!

Shakespeare Monologue Show with Stephen Collins

Please join us as actor/teacher/tour guide Stephen Collins returns with his one-man Shakespeare Monologue Show.

Stephen Collins grew up in Cambridge, and received a BA in Literature from UMass Boston. After twenty plus years in a sales career, he is back doing what he truly loves - performing and teaching. Recently he has been teaching seminars on Whitman, Hardy, Shakespeare, Frost, and Contemporary Poetry at various locations throughout the country.
The newest addition to his repertoire, a one man show Shake-Scene has been met to rave reviews. He also works as a professionally licensed tour guide doing narrated historical tours of Boston. His Whitman performances have taken him all over the country. He now has eight one-man shows and six courses where his teaching style has been described as a hybrid between lecture and performance.

Shakepeare wrote to be listened to, not read, and Stephen, with his "pitch-perfect" performance, will do justice to the Bard. And what better way to celebrate National Poetry month!
