Opportunities of Service and Outreach

We have various opportunities to reach out to others in need:

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY: We work with Habitat for Humanity in helping to build homes for the less fortunate. Our next Habitat project will be on Saturday, July 20th in Worcester. 

PROJECT MEXICO: During the summer, our Church sends a group to Tijuana, Mexico to work with the Orthodox organization Project Mexico (www.projectmexico.org) to help build homes for the desperately poor. This project typically takes place in July.

WEBSTER FOOD SHARE: Volunteers have an opportunity to serve a hot meal for the needy every other Tuesday evening (from Sept - May) at the United Church of Christ in Webster.

VISITATIONS TO THE ELDERLY: Throughout the year, but especially before Christmas and during Great Lent, our youth will visit the homebound and other elderly in Nursing Homes. Eveyrone is welcome to come on these visits.

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE: You have become a blood donor and/or you can volunteer to help when we have the Red Cross Blood Drive at our Church. We have one blood drive every July, and occasionally at other times throughout the year.

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS: We have an OPEN AA meeting held at our Church every Sunday evening from 6:30-8:00.

Monthly Message

Christmas celebrates the moment in history when God acted in a particular and unique fashion. He decided to show His love by coming on earth as a human being, and revealing to the world what true humanity is all about. He incarnated divine agape love so that the world could better understand what true love means. And not only did he show the world what true humanity is, He offered His Spirit to live and dwell within us to help us. Christ came to renew that likeness of God within us which we had lost long ago!

The secular Christmas Spirit and the religious Christmas Spirit. Two different ways of approaching Christmas, and yet maybe both have something to help us prepare for this great feast of the Church.

Fr Luke asked me to speak about “What God and the Church mean to me and why I give back to the Church.” We know WHY we are here – we come to encounter God, to pray, to ask forgiveness, to seek spiritual guidance and inspiration, and for so many other things. But do we know WHAT we are supposed to do as followers of Jesus Christ?
