MISSION IN THE CHURCH

mission-church.jpg

Our faith community is structured and strengthened by eleven boards and committees who meet together, communicate together and create together so that the work and worship of our church may be faithful, hope-filled and loving:

Deacons
Music Committee
Board of Trustees
Nominating Committee
Christian Education

Communications and Tech Team

Safe Church Committee
Mission and Outreach
Stewardship Committee
Membership Committee
Finance Committee    

Moreover, the mission of our faith community is fortified and amplified by the on-site ministry of our Grafton Thrift Shop.

Furthermore, the outreach of our faith community is expanded by two annual events: our Harvest Fair and Apple Pie Social, and Grafton Celebrates the Holidays, where our church facility serves as a “Frosty Stop” to foster family, friendship and fellowship within our greater community.

Finally, the gift of hospitality within our faith community is extended to three Twelve-Step Recovery Groups and nearly a dozen Scouting organizations who meet weekly within in our sacred space.

There is unity in community!

We do not live only for ourselves.

A thousand fibers connect us with humankind throughout the globe.

Our faith community is committed to serving needful individuals, families and nations in the world through these missions and agencies:

  • Heifer Project

  • Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan's Purse

  • Operation Friendship

  • Support Ukraine 

 

Share in the most important mission of humankind:
To let people know they are not alone.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Are you thinking of joining our faith community?

 

We invite and welcome you into the membership

of the Congregational Church of Grafton!

 

Three times a year, we offer New Member Classes

for those thinking of joining our family of faith.

The series of three classes offers you the opportunity to share the story of your journey of faith.

Moreover, you may learn more about the history

of the Congregational Church of Grafton as well as

the theological background of the United Church of Christ. A church tour enlightens you on our church's historical artifacts -- including our underground river!

 

Please indicate your interest in joining our church to our pastor.

 

We look forward to traveling your journey of faith beside you!
