About the Women’s Fellowship

The Women’s Fellowship invites all women of the church to their meetings. Our evening meetings provide opportunities to conduct business as well as enjoy each other’s company and have a good time. Most meetings consist of a short business meeting followed by a program and refreshments.

The Fellowship makes annual donations to a variety of charities, local and far away. These include You, Inc., Cottage Hill Academy (formerly The Protestant Youth Center), Habitat for Humanity,Our Father’s House, UCC Central Association Scholarship Fund, Crotched Mountain, and HOPE, Inc. We also sponsor a Native American child through the Christian Children’s Fund. Traditionally, the Fellowship has helped support the church in general and the kitchen by purchasing supplies as well as major appliances.

The Fellowship welcomes help with their two annual fundraising events –the Holly Berry Fair, and our spring vendor/craft fair. We appreciate any donations of your time, baked goods, sale items, or other assistance!

 

Women’s Fellowship October 8, 2018 Meeting 7 p.m.

The Immigrant Welcoming Church

At the October meeting of the Women’s Fellowship, Dawn Adams, Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Brimfield, will be our speaker. Dawn is on the immigrant welcoming task force for the UCC Massachusetts Conference. In June the Massachusetts Conference voted to declare itself an “Immigrant Welcoming Conference” and to call on associations and churches to do the same. Dawn will help us understand what this means for individual churches. We hope to see you on October 8th. All are welcome.

Our Church’s 2018 CROP Hunger Walk Team is looking for your support. If you wish to join our team, go to CROP Hunger Walk, Concord, MA or call the Church Office (978-874-5790) and Pastor Ray will assist you in registering. Donations to individual team members or a general donation to our church team can be made at the above site. A member of the Christian Outreach ministry is also available during coffee fellowship on Sundays to provide you with information.

The Walk will be held on Sunday, October 21 at 2:15 pm. Beginning and ending at First Parish in Concord. Pets on leashes are welcome.

The 3.5K route takes about one hour to walk. The route goes through the historic Minuteman National Park, taking one across the Old North Bridge.

Pre-walk music provided by Concord-Carlisle High School Pep Band and post-walk music by the Yankee Stompers Dixieland Jazz Band. Cookies and cider are served at the end of the walk.

9 local food pantries (including the Westminster Food Pantry) and community suppers are supported by the Concord CROP Walk

Together, we can help end hunger in our community and around the world!
