The Outreach Committee has stocked the new Blessings Box, located near the church driveway exit.
The Blessings Box (also known as a Free Little Pantry in some communities), is a tool for neighbors to help neighbors. The box will be stocked with an assortment of items, including nonperishable foods, baby diapers and supplies, as well as basic household supplies and personal care items.
The box is a place community members may take something they need or donate something for others. All can be done at one’s convenience, and anonymously. Donations may also be left in the basket in the church foyer. All items must be sealed and within expiration dates.
Special thanks to the owners at Shag Bark for their generosity with a discount on the materials for the box, as well as assembly of the box.
Take a blessing, bring a blessing, be a blessing!
As stated on the Pastor Page, Reverend Ron Lake will begin as our Interim Minister on January 1, 2019. Reverend Lake will schedule hours to be available to parishioners, and he should be here until we find a settled minister.
Please consider helping a kid or two or three with camp, uniforms and books. See Alice Csere for more information.
Find the basket in the church foyer. We will collect any non-perishable food, baby items and personal hygiene items. Overflow from the Blessings Box will be donated to the Colchester Food Bank.
One of the first duties of the Pastoral Search Committee is to develop a church profile, which will be used when advertising for our next pastor. Please assist them by completing the questionnaire which will identify priorities of the current church congregation. Use the link below to print out and complete the form, and give to a Committee member or place in the offering plate by December 16. Thank you for your assistance!
