First Parish Church in Weston

Church School Outreach Projects

Outreach is a fundamental part of our Church School experience, the goal being to provide tools for a lifetime of service. Children learn more about community through age-appropriate "hands-on" service projects, moving from helping one's family to the concept of global citizenship. In addition, we invite children to contribute to the offering collected during Chapel worship and to help decide how the money is to be spent.

Some projects planned for the 2015 - 2016 church year:

 

All-Parish, All-Ages Energy Efficiency "Barnraising" – Come help a family in Waltham make their home more energy efficient by caulking window frames, installing door sweeps, putting in new light bulbs and power strips, and much more! No experience needed – learn from an experienced team leader and perhaps find things that will help your own home in the process!
