Greenfield church to shut down its service on Sunday
Members of GCC are putting their faith into action by canceling their regular Sunday service at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center, 1 Verney Drive, to practice purposeful acts of service throughout their community.
The weekend will begin with a bake sale Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to raise money for the various Faith in Action projects. The bake sale will be held at Delay’s Harvester Market in the center of the village.
On Sunday, participants will gather at the Greenfield Covenant Church’s Ministry Center at 12 Depot Drive at 9 a.m. for a short session of prayer and singing; and the group will then disburse to work on the projects, which include improving the playground and nature trail at Greenfield Elementary School and painting projects at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center.
“We’re excited about how our congregation has rallied to support this special Sunday of service to our community. The people who have signed up for the various projects obviously see the value of what we are doing and want to help. We invite everyone to join us,” says GCC’s pastor, the Rev. Dr. Dan Osgood.
