It's hard to believe the Summer is in its final days, and that we are about to begin a new school year and a Church Homecoming. Come and help us celebrate a new start, and welcome friends and family after a long and hot summer.
Annual crop walk - September 30, 2018 2pm to 6pm
Once again our Church will host the annual crop walk. Gilead Church and Columbia Congregational Church will join us. Registration starts at 2:30 PM and the walk begins at 3:00PM. We need a volunteer to register walkers, set-up and clean-up after the pot luck. Joan Soucy will have a list of items for the pot luck, same as last year: appetizers, main dishes, and desserts. AND we need walkers and people to donate to this wonderful program.
weekly & monthly activities - food pantry and supply Sunday
Supply Sunday Continues
Supply Sunday takes place on the last Sunday of each month. We ask people to bring a certain item once a month to help keep the church supplied with basics like paper goods, plastic wrap and the like. This helps to stretch our budget and keep the church supplied with the necessities. For the month of September we are asking for large paper plates and 8 oz. coffee cups (not Styrofoam), as well as toilet paper.
The food pantry hours are held on Monday evenings (5-7pm). There are additional hours for Senior Citizens at 9 am on the following Wednesdays in September: 12th & 26th. Your donations can be left in the box in the foyer leading into the Parish Hall. To find out what items are needed for the food pantry, or to arrange another time to access the food pantry, please talk with Joan Soucy (860) 208-3226.
The Mobile Foodshare Van continues to come every other Wednesday with fresh produce and other grocery items for everyone, regardless of income. They will be here from 9 – 9:30 am on Wednesdays September 5 and 19. Please bring your own bags.
- Our crafters continue to work together making items for the Craft fair in December 2018. It is planned for Saturday December 1st, 2018 from 9:30AM to 2:30PM. Food will be available and there will be lots of hand crafted items. We have room for 7-8 crafters to rent space. Crafters will be meeting weekly on Thursdays from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM to work together on sale items.
