Christ’s command to “love one another” inspires us to act with and on behalf of people whom society devalues, neglects, or ignores. We do this locally, nationally and internationally through service and financial donations.
In Concord, we collect items for local food pantries; assemble Christmas packages for the men in the Concord state prisons; and bundle personal hygiene items into kits for victims of natural disaster, among other activities. We also open our building at no charge to community groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and the families of military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We have sent six work teams to help New Orleanians devastated by Hurricane Katrina; built homes for Habitat for Humanity in Ireland and Louisiana; and taken our youth to coastal South Carolina to repair the homes of people living in poverty.
Each year, we also give away a significant portion of our church budget to organizations near and far that are doing God’s work in the world. These include Church World Service, Minuteman ARC for Human Services, the Food Project, Rosie’s Place, Concord CARES, the Virginia Thurston Healing Garden, and Concord Prison Outreach.
