Rev. Anne’s Biblical Reflection

Our preacher this week is the Reverend Daniel England.  Dan has served several churches in Fairfield County including the First Congregational Church in Old Greenwich, Greens Farms Congregational Church and, most recently, the First Congregational Church in Fairfield.  He has also served as the Interim Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church of Litchfield, CT.  Recently he finished his term as the Chair of the Fairfield West Association Committee on Church and Ministry.  Dan will be preaching on the subject of faith drawing on those magnificent words from Hebrews 11:  Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

Earth Ministry

baystateWCC now has a recycling bin for used textiles in the parking lot behind Pilgrim Hall.  Please support the church and the community by placing your unwanted textiles in the box.  This is not like Goodwill, as we will take them in any condition.  These are collected and recycled by Bay States Textiles.  They are either mended and sold to third world countries, turned into wiping cloths, or made into filler material.  This reduces the amount of waste going into our landfills.  They need to be put in plastic bags before putting them in the box.  Click here for a list of acceptable items.
