Blackstone Valley Emergency Shelter

Volunteer Orientation 

Sunday, October 14, 2018 following coffee hour

So many people in our society are overlooked and in need of a helping hand, especially during the harsh winter months. There are folks right here in our own community who are endangered by the cold and do not have a warm, safe place to sleep at night. If you are interested in working with others in our congregation to respond to this critical need, please join the Gifts and Service committee after coffee hour on October 14 for an orientation of the Blackstone Valley Emergency Shelter. We will provide forms, answer questions and watch a training video to prepare our volunteer force for the coming cold weather season. This is a great opportunity to work together to meet an important local need.

Community Supper

Hosted by the Gifts and Services committee, the Community Supper is held every third Thursday at 5:30 in the Lower Vestry (use the ground floor side entrance). The Community Supper is a place where our guests can enjoy the company of new and old friends and take a break from having to cook one evening a month. It’s an opportunity for those outside of our congregation to come in and see what the United Parish is about and of course it offers a nutritious meal for all, including main dish, vegetarian option, salad, bread (generously donated by Panera Bread), dessert and beverage. We accept a free will offering to help provide the resources necessary to prepare the meal. Donations are not required. Come and bring a friend. We hope to see you there!

Held the third Thursday of the month at 5:30.
