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!

The Pumpkin Patch has retired

For 16 years, the community of Winchester and the surrounding towns
have helped us make a big difference in the lives of countless people
through our annual Pumpkin Patch.
Each purchase of pumpkins or gourds raised funds for the Navajo Nation,
the Connect & Commit service organization (Winchester High School),
McCall Middle School after-school programs, Boy Scout Troup 507,
and the Woburn Food Pantry.

Thank you for all of your support in the last 16 years.

While we can no longer run our annual Patch,
our sister church in Lexington runs one through the same organization,
benefitting the Navajo and local organizations of their choice.

ALS ONE

a chance to make a difference in the research and treatment of ALS
(Amotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease)!
Church member Deb Miller ran the Falmouth Road Race on August 19th
to raise funds for ALS ONE —
thank you for your support!
Keep an eye out for 2019 information.

ALS ONE is an unprecedented partnership of the world’s leaders in ALS from Massachusetts General Hospital, UMass Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, ALS Therapy Development Institute, and CCALS. Together, they have joined forces on a shared Science Plan. An approach to a disease to this extent has never before been taken. They have committed to finding a treatment or cure for ALS by the year 2020, while improving the care model for those living with ALS now.

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.

 

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