Outreach at GrotonWe are committed to serving our community and the world.
We are involved in our community! From Grammies Jammies to Summer Camp for Groton City children, we are lending helping hearts and hands to benefit those around us. Our Mission’s Committee is involved in many wonderful projects and events. There is great enthusiasm and joy in giving back to our community.
Camp for Kids – Each year our Missions Team works hard to raise funds to help underprivileged children attend a wonderful day-camp for the entire summer. In addition to being a lot of fun for the children, this provides much needed meals as well.
Grammies Jammies – We are partnered with the Riverfront Children’s Center and each winter collect “jammies”. Last year we were able to provide 125 pairs of warm “jammies” for the children of Riverfront.
Operation Christmas Child – We collect items to fill shoeboxes, which are then shipped all over the world to underprivileged children. We contribute over 50 filled shoeboxes every year.
Groton Community Meals – Groton Congregational is entering into a new partnership with Groton Community Meals to provide dinner for people in need in our community. Currently Groton Community Meals serves one wonderful dinner each Monday to anyone who chooses to come. We aspire to work with GCM to increase that to a second day of the week and beyond!
Habitat for Humanity – Groton Congregational is entering into a new partnership with Habitat for Humanity to help expand their amazing work in this community.
Emergency Assistance – Groton Congregational Church offers emergency assistance in certain situations that are not covered by other community services. In the past year alone we have helped provide housing, food and other critical needs to people in crisis.
More to Come! Groton Congregational is currently looking at ways to expand our impact in the world. We would love to have your ideas and input and to help you get your idea off the ground and start making an impact in the world!
