Blankets for Bruce: Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, homelessness and poverty are always with us. When difficult times happen, a kind and loving response can make all the difference. That’s why the CWS Blankets program was created—to give a kind, loving, and tangible response to someone facing a difficult time, reminding them that they are not alone. When our neighbors are in need, $10 for a single blanket goes a long way.
In 2022 we renamed our congregation’s annual Blankets + appeal to ‘Blankets for Bruce’. This is an opportunity to continue to honor Bruce, help make a difference, change lives, and honor Bruce’s memory. Please consider a contribution to the CWS Blankets+ Program
Spring "Good Stuff Sale" Donations wanted:It’s time to spring clean your home and collect good stuff for the Woman’s Associations' Annual Good Stuff Sale, which will be held Friday, April 26, 4:00—7:00 p.m., and Saturday, April 27, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. All proceeds go to our charities and other needs within our church. Thank you so much! Qustions? please contact Sally Bowkett or Alicia Wight. For more detail please visit the WA Website page.
Home Starter Update: Our Home Starter Program has served over fifty families just in 2023, and has already made deliveries in 2024. Our volunteers work tirelessly to make sure every family has a fully furnished apartment. We are always in need of more volunteers, both administrative and for driving/moving. Contact the HomeStarter Team to see how you can help!
Fellowship Team Needs Your Help! Our Fellowship Team works throughout the year to put on the many fun church activities we enjoy: The Rally Day Picnic, Game Night, the Kentucky Derby Party, to name a few. They also put the kettle on every Sunday so that after worship we can enjoy coffee and tea while greeting friends. This small, but mighty group could use a few more members to help balance the workload and to bring fresh ideas to the group. If you are interested, please contact Meredith Dart.
Congregational Care: Are you interested in being contacted about helping with meals for members of our congregation? Are you available to help with transportation? Our ministry is a blessing to those who have been on the receiving end of a home-cooked meal, help with a ride, a visit, a note or a call. Would you like to be added to the list of volunteers? Please contact Sara Phelps.
Livestream Help! Volunteers are needed on Sunday mornings to help run the live-stream camera and laptop during worship. It’s easy and we are hoping to train a few more folks so the rotation is easy on everyone. Contact Doug Topliffe if you’d like to learn.
Home Starter Amazon Wish List: Home Starter, a program of our Outreach ministry, has been very busy delivering furniture, bathroom, and kitchen kits to those in need, in our local area. We are very short on inventory for some of the kitchen/bathroom essentials and could use your help! If you are interested, you can use the Amazon Wish List button above to purchase the items. Thank you!
Project in Memory of Anne Krantz: The Nipmugs, a local chapter of the National Questers group, has contacted the church in regards to a potential donation (up to $1,500) in memory of Anne Krantz, who was a longtime member of this group. The donation would go towards the restoration or preservation of an artifact belonging to the church such as restoring a painting, piece of silver, or other old item belonging to the church. If you have any suggestions for a project that would meet this criteria, please contact either Doug Topliffe or Andrea Cyr
