Our Worship Services
West Parish Yard Sale - Saturday,
September 10th, 8:00 AM to 12 Noon
Please help to support this year’s yard sale in any way that you can! This is the biggest Men's Group fund raiser of the year and the cause is very important. All the proceeds will support the college education of needy kids. The typical scholarship recipient who attends a Massachusetts state school needs to come up with approximately $6,000 annually out of pocket. Most of the kids are on their own without any support from home, it is near impossible for them to close this gap by working minimum wage jobs. Know that our scholarships are very meaningful and that your help is significant. For more information see our September Newsletter.
