Church by the Pond

July 29, 2017

Church by the Pond – This year St. James will participate in a new way for Church by the Pond – instead of providing lunches, we will be provide toiletry bags. Our selected dates of participation are Saturdays, July 29 and November.  Here are some ways you can be involved in this important ministry:

  • Sign up to donate travel-sized toiletry items. Items most needed by our friends in Hartford: body wash, deodorant, shaving cream, toothpaste, sunscreen. A sign-up sheet is in the narthex. The marked donation bin is in the narthex.
  • Sign up to make a financial donation (as little as $25) to purchase the items listed above.
  • On your travels for business or pleasure, collect the small toiletries from your hotel room and place them in the donation bin.
  • Sign up to assemble the toiletry bags on the morning of July 29th at 10 a.m. at the church.
  • Sign up to attend Church by the Pond on July 29th at 2 p.m. for worship in Bushnell Park, and hand out toiletry bags.
