Current Outreach Opportunity We are now collecting personal care items for the local shelters and Dial Self.  You may bring your offerings and place under the table in the narthex.   There is a continuing need for disposable diapers for the homeless who are living in the shelters and congregant housing in the greater Greenfield area.  You may bring diaper contributions to the church and place them in the picture board room. 

Going Green   For some time we have been recycling and most recently recycling our flatware.  The council has decided to begin a program for composting along with recycling.  For events downstairs, you will find a compost barrel.  Please place your paper goods, food, paper cups, napkins, and flatware in the barrel for delivery to the compost station in Greenfield. Our plates, cups, and flatware are all designed for composting.  Recycling tubs are to the left of the coffee pot downstairs.
