 The pandemic increased isolation and stress among many in our community, young and old. We are beginning with monthly activities to build community and connect among older adults and plan to offer other events and activities to address the practical need for positive social connection, support and meaningful community for others in the community as well.” commented Rev. Dr. Kevin Downer, pastor.

The church has served as the Monday location for Community Kitchens of Northeast Connecticut for the past eight years, offering free hot meals every week. The meal program provides an important social outlet. This new program seeks to build upon this ministry by offering a variety of daytime social activities. It is hoped that the center will nurture relationships and connections between residents of Woodstock and the surrounding communities.
