Newtown Congregational Church, UCC
Each Sunday, following the worship service, the church has a Hospitality Time known to many as Coffee Hour - a time to gather and enjoy the company of others as well as have some refreshments. As a congregation, we have intentionally focused ourselves on providing an "extravagant welcome" to our visitors and new members. However, during our Hospitality Time we can't help but use this time to catch up and reconnect with each other. Unfortunately this often leaves us forgetting to provide hospitality to our visitors and newer members and to include them into our conversations. It truly is our sincere desire to be "extravagant welcomers" and we hope that you will be patient and consider that this excitement is contagious and soon, you too will be focusing on catching up with your church family on Sunday mornings!... see you Sunday during and after worship!
The men of the church meet quarterly at a local restaurant to enjoy fellowship and work on service project plans. Their programs include a Holiday Ham Dinner, Salvation Army bell ringing in December, Christmas tree lighting, Memorial Garden maintenance, a summer picnic and at their heart is support for the Feed The Children charitable organization.
Women of the church belong to a fellowship "circle" that provides an opportunity to enjoy the close relationships and support offered to each other. The women enjoy working on service projects and hosting special events.The Circle meets at 9:30 a.m. in the church library on the second Tuesday of each month.
