Church by the Pond

November 4, 2017

Church by the Pond – This year St. James is participating in a new way for Church by the Pond– instead of providing lunches, we will be provide toiletry bags. Saturday,  November 4, will be our second time doing this mission,  We’ll provide 40 kits containing cold-weather items like emergency blankets, lip balm, hand warmers, and rain ponchos. 

Please mark your calendars for Saturdays, June 16 and October 20 in 2018 – our next opportunities to participate in this important caring ministry.

 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

Please contact Jessica Watkin with any questions!
