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.
