An Outreach opportunity -

On the first Tuesday of every month we cook lunch for the Warm Center in Westerly (for the following Wednesday). We will meet on September 3rd at 7pm.

The mission of the Warm Center of Westerly is "to provide a continuum of service and care to the homeless and needy by providing affordable housing and assuring supportive services, and to help the homeless and needy build self- esteem and move toward independent and responsible living."  The Warm Center serves Westerly and surrounding communities in Rhode Island and Connecticut.  Lunch and dinner are served seven days a week.  Approximately 100 meals are served at the Warm Center every day.

If you’re interested in participating, please call Norm Erlendson at (860)759-6720.

Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center -

We continuously collect items for the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center (PNC). The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, founded in 1985, is a multi-purpose facility which offers a variety of social, educational, health and human services programs with an emphasis on community spirit. For information on volunteering your time at the PNC please contact the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center at (860)599-3285.

Library/Book Store

We have set up a Library/Book Store in the nursery room off the parlor. The concept is to "Take a Book and Leave a Donation". Once you donate, the book is yours. If you would like to donate books, that would be great and we ask that you simply put them on the shelves. We hope you all will enjoy the chance to read a great book and help Missions at the same time! Dee Kimball and Sally Salancy are the Missions liaisons for this project.

Altar Flowers -

If you would like to provide altar flowers for any given Sunday Worship, please contact Sally Salancy at (860)536-3850, send an email to or text Sally at (860)405-5795.

In our prayers -
