Missions

The Little Church With a Big Heart:
where we are small enough that everyone knows each other,
and big enough to make a world of difference!

Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk
(Oct. 1, 2017)

For more than 15 years, 2CCW has sent a team of people to walk in Boston’s annual walk to raise funds for early detection, treatment and research for breast cancer. We walked again in 2017. We’ll be back on the street in 2018 — keep your eye out for more info as the date approaches!

Fifth Sunday Service Opportunities

We recognize that God calls us to serve one another beyond the walls of our church building. Four times a year, there is a fifth Sunday on the calendar; we have designated those Sundays “Service Sundays.” After looking around our neighborhood, we decide on a need that we feel we can address — and then we get it done! See our Events page for more information.

The Food Pantry (Council of Social Concern, Woburn)

Each week, we collect non-perishable food donations to give to the Food Pantry. We especially encourage donations at Second Saturday Suppers. At Thanksgiving, we traditionally fill baskets with food and gift cards for families who need a helping hand.

The Pumpkin Patch: October 2018 (specific dates TBD)

Each year, a truck pulls up to our church and we unload hundreds — even thousands! — of pumpkins. The pumpkins are grown by the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. They ship the pumpkins to us, we sell them, and then we divide the proceeds up among several mission projects:

  • The Navajo Nation
  • The Winchester McCall Middle School After-school Programs
  • The Woburn Council of Social Concerns/Food Pantry
  • Boy Scout Troop 507
  • Winchester High School Connect and Commit Service Organization
  • Other mission needs that come up throughout the year

In 2016, our thirteenth year of pumpkins, we unloaded over 1,800 pumpkins and countless gourds and miniature pumpkins.  Students from McCall Middle School, members of both Boy and Girl Scout Troops, and youth from the High School Connect and Commit helped us get the pumpkins set up and ready to sell. We had a very successful year; thank you! And we look forward to seeing you again at the Pumpkin Patch in October 2017!

Christmas Family

For the past several years, we have “adopted” a family for Christmas. The Woburn Council of Social Concern provides us with a list of items needed or desired for each member of a family, and as a church, we gather together and work to make the holidays a little brighter for a family in tough times. We will adopt a family again this year and are looking forward to bringing some Christmas cheer to a local family in need.

Mission of Deeds

Periodically, the Mission of Deeds makes us aware of a particular need within the community. In 2013, we were able to donate to the February Blanket Drive. Toward the end of the year, the Mission of Deeds was raising money for new beds for children who were transitioning from shelters to their own homes. We were grateful to be able to contribute to that effort.

We have received so much,
and with gratitude, it is our joy to give.
