Active Incident Training by Lynn Police

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, family members and everyone effected by the recent shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.  The recent tragedies in Tennessee and Texas last year and Pittsburgh a few days ago demonstrate the need for some type of training to make the community feel safe.  It is unfortunate as a society we have to prepare for such evil acts of violence.  The Lynn Police Department would like to offer active incident training for the faith based community.  I have included Officer Ron Brown and Officer John Mackin in this email as they are the officers that offer active incident training.  Please reach out to them to schedule it if interested.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me by email or phone.

Today, In Our Town- A Christmas Play

Still Small Theatre is currently (fall 2018) booking touring performances of the Christmas play, Today, In This Town!
Looking for a way to share Christmas with your community this year? We’ll come to you!
At about 30 minutes, hosting this play is a great way to have a fun, family-friendly event that doesn’t overtax people’s often-too-busy holiday schedules. The script is adapted from a medieval Christmas pageant and, like the original, imagines Jesus’ coming in our own modern context. Full of deep characters and hilarious moments, it pulls us out of our usual way of hearing the Christmas story so that we can hear it again.
Cost is low ($150) and audience donations will benefit local refugee ministry in MA. There is also an option to pay a higher flat fee and use any audience donations to support a ministry in which your church is involved.
Interested in hosting a performance? E-mail us at or check out for more information!
