We seek to extend the mission of our church to the wider community through various programs and projects that positively affect the lives of people. Our Board of Missions is comprised of a caring group of people who are open to the needs of our brothers and sisters in the church, the local community and beyond.
Some of the programs we support and acknowledge include:
Interfaith Sewing and Service Group – A group of volunteers making items for those in need in the community and globally. They meet Wed 10-2:30 at the church. New members are always welcome. Sewing experience is not necessary. Student volunteers receive school credit.
WAIM – Windham Area Interfaith Ministries – The commitment of WAIM is the free redistribution of clothing, household goods and furniture to people who need them. Donors come from one of the 39 faith communities-at large, supplying us with items they no longer use. WAIM is a volunteer driven organization that serves about 7,500 people a year via basic services and special programs. We have expanded into the provision of energy assistance and administering funds to prevent homelessness. www.waimct.org
CT Food Bank Mobile Pantry – The pantry now stops at our church every 4th Tuesday from 1-2pm., providing fresh fruits and vegetables, and often breads or dairy products.
