This Week In Faith Formation

Please join us this Sunday, December 10 at 10:30 am

Faith Formation Exploration: Children will start the morning with their families in the sanctuary for the first 15 minutes, then go upstairs for class.

The pre-K-6th grade class will be sewing pot holders and making no sew blankets for the Homeless Hospitality Center.   We will be getting into the Holiday spirit with cookies, and ornament making.

The 8th and 9th grade class will continue Building Bridges.  Building Bridges is a world religions program to deepen youth’s understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search.

SOCIAL JUSTICE PROJECT  Homeless Hospitality Center collection

The Homeless Hospitality Center in New London is a place of safety and welcome to adults facing homelessness in southeastern Connecticut. 

The Homeless Hospitality Center has a 40-bed overnight shelter, including a Respite Center for those confronting chronic or acute health issues, and is full nearly every night. 

The Homeless Hospitality Center helps hundreds of people a year find a place to live. Virtually all of them have limited income and need help with basic necessities for setting up their new home. We are collecting household items for a Welcome Home Basket.  The bulletin board in the fellowship hall near the stairs has a list all the items that we are collecting. We are asking everyone in the congregation to donate one or more items from the list.  Tear off the item you are going to donate.
