There are still openings left for each group of our ‘Me and White Supremacy’ Book Groups. We will meet 5 times, bi-weekly on Tuesdays beginning August 5. Even if you haven’t read any of the book yet, you are welcome to join us! Sign up for this exciting opportunity to learn more about how to stand against racism by contacting Pastor Rachel!

Our Food Sharing Cabinet is getting a lot of use. If you would like to help, please stop by and stock it with what you can. Food and other household/hygiene items are very helpful at this time. If you’d like to know more about helping to expand the Food Sharing project through Norwich Mutual Aid, email us at or contact Pastor Rachel.

Guidelines for NYS Religious Services allow us to gather in groups of 10 safely. While we are allowed to meet in our building, it is not necessarily safe to do so. We are focusing this summer on building a network of House Churches that can meet either in person or via Zoom. To learn more about how to get involved, contact Pastor Rachel, or visit

The Task Force for Reopening is continuing to work toward reopening our church, prioritizing safety and connecting our community. See our latest update here:
