Welcome to the Brownsville Community Church, a United Methodist Church located in West Windsor, Vermont.  If you are interested in attending a local church that is actively serving the local community, please join us Sunday morning at 9:00AM.  Whether you are new to the Christian faith or have been away from the church for some time, come join us.  Visitors on vacation here in the beautiful Mount Ascutney area are always welcome.


 Did you know?  One in seven Vermonters is at risk of hunger.  They just do not have adequate financial resources to ensure a reliable supply of nutritious food for themselves and their families.

This spring, the schools and businesses in the communities of West Windsor and Reading are joining the Brownsville Community Church in a food drive to support the Reading-West Windsor Food Shelf.

From now until May 4, non-perishable food donations may be dropped off in Brownsville and Reading at 8 different locations … Brownsville Community Church, Albert Bridge School, Brownsville General Store, Brownsville Post Office, Reading Elementary School, Watroba’s Reading Country  Store, Reading Greenhouse and Reading Town Office.

Items needed include canned and boxed food such as soups, stews, pastas, peanut butter, jelly, macaroni & cheese, etc.  Donors are asked to please make sure that expiration dates have not passed and that cans and boxes are in good condition.

In addition, the students of Albert Bridge School’s third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades will be donating approximately 35 loaves of homemade bread.  On Friday, May 1, King Arthur Flour will teach the students how to bake the bread. Then each student will have a weekend homework assignment of baking 2 loaves of bread … one for their own family and one for the food shelf.

On the morning of May 4, donations will be collected from the eight locations.  The loaves of bread and all the other donations will be taken to the food shelf accompanied by a small delegation of students.

Monetary donations made payable to Reading-West Windsor Food Shelf, Inc. can be sent to

the food shelf at P.O. Box 384, Brownsville, VT 05037.  Donations can also be made through their

secure web site at http://rwwfoodshelf.org/html/donate_money.html.

The Reading-West Windsor Food Shelf provides food and donated clothing free of charge to locals of all ages in Reading, West Windsor and adjacent communities that do not have a food pantry.

Thank you to all.  Together, we can all make a difference.
