We believe in putting our faith into action. Through the United Church of Christ Global Ministries we participate in an extended ministry to those of special need throughout the nation and the world.
It may feel like summer’s just begun, but once again, it’s time to invite you to help us collect supplies for children in Lee Elementary School whose families can’t afford the supplies their children need, particularly in this difficult year. Please use the following list of items that are needed–the Dollar Store is a great place to shop for these items!
Items (or monetary donations) may be left in the church office until August 15th: Ticonderoga #2 pencils, pencil and regular erasers, blue & black pens, colored pencils, blunt scissors, glue sticks, index cards, crayons (8/16/24 count), black marble composition books, single subject notebooks, plastic spoons (in a sealed box), band-aids, disinfectant wipes, ziplock bags, hand sanitizers (St. John’s natural). Lee’s families thank you!
Imagine trying to get everywhere you need to go in Berkshire County without a car–it’s nearly impossible! Berkshire Interfaith Organizing (BIO) is introducing a new campaign recruiting volunteers (retired seniors ages 59-79) to drive Berkshire residents to medical appointments. Consider the rewards of becoming a volunteer in this important program.
Besides these campaigns, in our community we offer both financial support and personal participation in programs such as Berkshire Interfaith Organizing (BIO) Construct Inc., Relay for Life, the Lee Food Pantry, UNICEF, the Berkshire Community Diaper Project , Multicultural Bridge and the Not in Our County campaign, and Church World Service. Our building and grounds are also used by many community activities and service organizations including the Lee Farmer’s Market.
