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!

The Pumpkin Patch: suspended until 2021

As you know, our Patch is a fundraiser primarily for the Navajo Nation. We invite you to think back on years past and on the money you so generously donated as you decorated your homes, offices, and schools. We hope that you will then go to Adopt-a-Native-Elder and make a similar donation in support of our native siblings who have been particularly hurt by the Covid pandemic. Thank you.

 

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

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to safely run the Pumpkin Patch this year. We are currently researching other ways to support the Navajo Nation, which has been devastated by the pandemic. Please check back here for fundraising information, which we will post as it becomes available.

We’ll see you at the Patch in October 2021!

Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk
(Sept. 29, 2019)

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. The Swartz Family will once again walk on our behalf. Click here to visit the Swartz Family’s team page.

Thank you for supporting us in 2019, and we’ll keep you posted about The Walk in 2020!

 

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.
