We have installed a new hearing aid system at Boston Square which will broadcast a signal directly to your own hearing aid. To use this system you must activate the T-Coil switch found on many hearing aids. If you do not have a hearing aid or if yours does not have a T-Coil switch we have two portable headsets in the narthex which are available to use during services.

Nursery Pager System

posted May 1, 2010, 9:07 AM by Boston Square Church Domain Administrator

Boston Square's nursery now has a pager system, donated by Calvin College. 

Parents/guardians must sign their child in to the nursery and take a pager. The pager number will be written on the sign-in sheet as you sign your child in. Make sure to turn the pager on and make sure that it buzzes. When you come to pick your child up, remember to turn the pager off and return it to the nursery volunteers. Hall monitors will also carry a pager for the duration of the service so that the nursery volunteers can easily summon them if they need assistance.

Ping-Pong Tournament

Sharpen those cleats and re-string your paddles…it’s time for the first ever Boston Square Ping-Pong Tournament!  Sign-up in the back of church if you’re interested (you may still come on Saturday even if you haven’t signed up, but it sure helps us plan if you can let us know today!).  All ability levels are encouraged to participate.  

We’ll use a World Cup format—starting in pools of four or five.  The top two from each pool will enter the double elimination “Golden Paddle Playoff” and the rest will go into the “Silver Paddle Playoff”.  

Those who aren’t playing are encouraged to come by to encourage and lift up all those who have been beaten to a pulp by Pastor Jay.  It may not be international competition, but you won’t have to travel 3,000 miles either. We’ll have hotdogs going all day (until competition ends) and plenty of snacks to share.

The balls start bouncing at 9 am.
