Small Group and Mission Opportunities for Adults

The following groups/ministries welcome you to experience the joy of giving to others.  Please contact the church office for more information.

Bread and Roses

Bread & Roses is a soup kitchen in Lawrence, MA with a strong and rich tradition of being a center of hope and caring to the thousands of people in the Merrimack Valley who are struggling for survival.  We are proud to be able to prepare and offer food for this local organization.

Bell Choir

Hand BellsWe are charmed by their chimes - and so grateful for their talents!  Our Bell Ringers, under the direction of our Music Director, fill our sanctuary several times a year with the unique melody only heard from the bells.


Caregivers is a small and informal group who gather to offer support, encouragement and suggestions to one another as we face the many challenges of caring for our aging parents.  Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month in the church library at 7pm.


ChoirsWe love to sing and we love to hear our choir sing!  Our choir members vary in experience and age but all enjoy singing God's praises.  The choir rehearses every Thurs. night @ 7:30pm in the sanctuary to prepare for the Sunday morning worship service.  We also invite our youth to join our Youth Choir.

Communications Committee
