Community Outreach

              The Missions Community Outreach Committee had their last meeting before summer vacation this month. We are looking forward to a summer filled with travel and activity as we are sure you all are as well.

              We received several thank you notes from Abby’s House, Camp Putnam, and Dismas as well as a personal note from someone that received food from the church during the Ingathering. We are so grateful for all the congregational support that we receive.

Our thanks go out to the Grimaldi family for providing the meal for Dismas in May. They stepped up and provided a delicious meal of chicken parmesan, bread, and salad. The Missions committee then delivered the meal to the residents of Dismas for the Grimaldi family. The meal for June will be provided by Kathy Highland, Grace Hatstat and Leah Long. The month of July does not have a team right now. If you would like to help, please contact Lori Giannotti (978)804-1142 /bbjl4@aol.com. Louise Jordan, Carol Erikson, and Lauren Carlson will provide the August meal.

The Missions Committee invited some folks from Dismas Family Farm to the church to speak to the congregation during the month of May. We were lucky to welcome two residents and a live-in counselor on May 22nd. We hope that you were able to attend that day as it was highly informative and helped to put a face on the service we provide. If you have a chance over the summer, you are welcome to visit    Dismas. You will find it extremely rewarding.

Also, we would like to remind everyone that just because the summer is here our service to our community does not end. The church will be serving popcorn during the concerts on the common on Friday nights over the summer.  Pastor Fish would welcome volunteers to help set up, break down, and sell popcorn. Sign up genius is set up to accept volunteers. This is a wonderful way to get out in the community and mingle while enjoying great music.

The Committee decided to make          donations to The Mustard Seed and Abby’s House this month. Thank you again for all the support you give to the church. This allows us to donate to these worthwhile community          programs.

The Missions Community Outreach Committee would like to remind you that we are always here to help anyone that may need extra support over the summer. Please contact one of the committee members directly or the church office if you need anything. Thank you.

We wish you all a wonderfully happy, healthy summer. May God bless you, our church, and our community, and remember that our service to others does not take a vacation.
