Christ’s command to “love one another” inspires us to act with and on behalf of our neighbors near and far through service and financial donations.
Locally, we collect items for Open Table and Household Goods; assemble Christmas packages for men in the Concord state prisons; make yearly collections and visits to Cradles to Crayons; and challenge ourselves to greater environmental stewardship. Mission activities and service days are offered each year. Individual members also bring their own passions for service into the life of the church.
Each year, we give away at least 10% of our church budget to organizations near and far that are doing God’s work in the world. These include the United Church of Christ, Minute Man ARC for Human Services, and Concord Prison Outreach. We also open our building at no charge to community groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Concord Prison Outreach, and the families of military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If you are interested in participating in any of our existing mission or social justice activities, or would like to bring new possibilities to our attention, please contact Amy Gleason (missions) or Judy Hill (social justice). This is an active and evolving ministry within the church and we welcome your interest and participation.
