The Warren United Church of Christ, an Open and Affirming congregation, strives to live our mission in everything that we do. We seek, in many ways, to be a light on a hill - for this community and beyond - affirming that God is still speaking, and working through our lives in mysterious and wondrous ways.
Service Sunday: October 4th
Please join us at church at 9:30 AM!
Have you or someone you know been a recipient of this community effort yet? You don’t have to join a committee or Worship on Sunday to help or be helped by this truly unique group of local neighbors. Spring & fall, Reverend Susan McKnight and the Mission Team of the Warren United Church organize a job list and community/church members sign up for which team they want to work on. ALL are truly welcome to join in on this brief but rewarding effort on Sunday, October 4th.
"The Warren Church congregation is a small, but very giving group of people. A few years ago when we talked about trying to be the face and hands of God in our community, it was easy to come up with the idea of 'Service Sunday'. It involves young and old alike and we aim to do it twice a year. Instead of sitting in the pews in Warren on Sunday morning we use that time to help others. There are sitting jobs for elders, special projects for the little ones and then our teenagers and other adults go out to clean, cook, stack, repair, paint, sing, etc." McKnight continued, "So, on Oct. 4th if you see a group of people in blue T-shirts that say: Little Church with a Big Heart you'll know what we are up to!"
Current Listing of Volunteer Opportunities for Oct. 4:
--Do a singalong at Cedar Hill Nursing Home in Windsor, where one of our dear and long-time members now resides.
--Do porch repair for someone in our community
--Give a handbell concert at Woodridge Nursing Home, where another of our members is now a resident [some of our children will be doing this]
--Help a Waitsfield elder with some yard projects
--Help with some projects at Warren School
--Stack wood for a local senior citizen
--Stay back at the church to prepare a feast for all the workers when they return between 12 and 12:30
