Ash Wednesday Services

On March 2nd we will offer two opportunities for celebrating Ash Wednesday. A prayer service will be held at noon and a worship service will take place at 7pm, both in the Sanctuary. Ashes will be offered at each service. If you prefer to worship with us remotely, you can find us on our Facebook page or on our You Tube page; both links can be found on the right-hand side of this page.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the season of Lent. It is a time of reflection, and preparation for the joy of Easter that will come soon. All are welcome to share this journey with us.

For those who may be interested, a Lenten study will be offered each Tuesday beginning on March 8th, at 10am in the Parish House. For additional information, contact the church office at 860-379-2157.

Sunday, January 2nd will be a communion service and anyone wishing to participate from home should plan to have some bread and grape juice available.

Want to help the folks affected by the tornados…

In light of the natural disasters happening lately, think the horrible tornados in our country, we wanted to remind you about donations to UMCOR…that is the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Because UMCOR’s administrative costs are funded by donations from churches in a special giving mission, any money UMCOR receives targeted toward relief of disasters is given, in total, directly toward helping those affected the most. If you’re looking for a great place to make a donation to help the folks who so desperately need the it, please go to and make a donation. Thank you.
