“How We Grew Community With Lay-Led Ministry,” with Christina Doherty, Worship Associate and Penny Brewer, Sunday Services Committee.

Social Action Committee’s Special Collection:
The Social Action Committee’s special collection for the month of August will be for The Peacock Family Services (PFS).
Community support and collaboration is critical to making the PFS attachment-promoting childcare services available to a cross-section of the Island’s population.

The goal is to turn no one away due to the family’s financial challenges.
Please make checks payable to Peacock Family Services.
