A recommendation from Caroline Johnson Hodge:

I am writing to put on your radar screen a wonderful summer opportunity for our kids: Pilgrim Lodge Summer Camp. The programs at Pilgrim Lodge (PL) are inspiring and age-appropriate, the staff is amazing, the setting is gorgeous, and you feel surrounded by all the values we cherish in the UCC: unconditional love and welcome, justice, stewardship of the earth. Feel free to be in touch with me with any questions -- I'm a big fan of PL! – Caroline

Rosie’s Place: Volunteer opportunities for families (ages 12 and up) to serve dinner to women living at Rosie’s Place in Boston. Village Church is signed up to serve at Rosie’s on the first Sunday of every month from 3-5:30PM. You may sign up through this link here: 


Please look over your calendars and consider taking part in this meaningful ministry with your family and church friends.   

 (Rosie’s Place was founded in 1974 as the first women's shelter in the United States. Their mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives.)
