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!
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.
The Colchester Giving Garden always needs extra help, and the produce goes to the community! Let Pastor Ron know if you want to help. They meet Tuesday evenings behind the Senior Center.
Consider greeting on one of our first Sundays of the month-Family Sunday! Greet parishioners at the door, hand out bulletins and host coffee hour. See the sign-up sheet in the foyer for more information. More information also on the Worship & Fellowship page.

*meeting after worship
At 10 a.m., each Thursday, folks meet in Canney Hall to knit, crochet, learn how to knit and/or crochet, or to just hang out and enjoy fellowship. All are welcome!
This Saturday, November 3, from 10a-2p, the Snowflake Bazaar will be held in a new, larger location: Chateau Le' Gari' Winery in Marlborough!
Any items for the bazaar may be dropped off at the church Friday, by 4:00 pm, or dropped at the vineyard between 6 and 7pm. Come to help set up at 6pm! Items needed include cookies for "Cookies by the Pound" sale, raffle baskets or items. People are needed for lunch servers, hostesses and cleanup.
This fundraiser is continuing to replace the doors to Canney Hall. The replacement cost is approximately $10,000-we can do this! If you would like to donate a portion of your income tax refund to the church, mark your check "ITRF Doors." An anonymous donor is willing to match any contributions to this fund!
