Make a Difference this Holiday Season!

As we turn our attention to the joys and blessings of the holiday season, we invite you to visit our “Make a Difference” page on our website for information about projects and opportunities to give back to our local community during the holidays.

Christmas Candle Deliveries

Last year church school families acted as “elves,” making Christmas cards and delivering them along with special Christmas candles to friends & members who we thought could use a little spark of Christmas cheer. If you would like to participate in this wonderful opportunity this year, contact Sarah at SarahNapoline@FirstParishWeston.org.
