Missions

Sunday Church Service – 9:00 AM

Music Ministry – Our choir, musicians and pianists/organists offer their musical gifts and talents for the worship of God.  The choir’s musical message is heartfelt and seeks to enhance the worship of our Lord and Savior.  We are blessed to have 2 excellent pianists/organists who share playing for Sunday services.

Prayer Bear Ministry – We all know someone who is going through a difficult time with illness, or life’s challenges.  During Sunday worship, a special stuffed bear or animal is selected from our menagerie of cuddly comfort creatures.  The bear is then passed through the congregation so each individual can pray for the person for whom prayers have been requested.  After the worship service, the Prayer Bear is delivered to the person to let them know our prayers are with them.

Food Shelf The Reading & West Windsor Food Shelf serves the communities of Reading, Weathersfield, Cavendish, and West Windsor.  It’s hours are Mondays 2pm to 4pm, and Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm.  Food items can be dropped off to the Church or you can bring food items with you to Church on Sundays.  Since Hurricane Irene and the economic downturn, more families and individuals than ever before need assistance and are served by the Food Shelf.  Those seeking assistance have expressed their gratitude for the kindness and generosity of their neighbors.

Blessing of the Animals – Every fall, the Pastor and representatives from other worship denominations gather at the Lucy MacKenzie Humane Society to bless the animals at the shelter and pets from families of surrounding communities.  It is a wonderfully spiritual occasion and is enjoyed by all.  Check the Calendar of Events for next fall’s date.
