On December 10, our Sunday School students hosted a Heifer International “Living Market” to help raise funds for global families in need. We are proud to report that over $1000 was raised for this worthy cause!
On December 10, several families brought in their Nativity Creshes to share during fellowship. It was neat to see how different they all were!
On November 9, we hosted the Community Senior Center of Richmond, Huntington and Bolton’s Harvest Lunch. The students from the Mansfield Cooperative School served soup, salad, bread, and desserts to over 65 seniors from our local area. We had a sing-along of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and entertainment from the “Coop” students, in the form of music and poetry. A wonderful time was had by all!
Happy Halloween! The pumpkins are carved and the power is on! The Richmond Congregational Church will be handing out candy and apple cider (hot or cold) to Trick-or-Treaters and their adult companions tonight from 5-8 pm on the front porch.

We had a wonderful day serving our community at our third annual Sunday of Service on May 21! Projects included working on the Richmond Trails, cooking meals for Act 1 & Bridge programs, singing at Sterling House, helping Our Community Cares Camp with their annual fundraising mailing, and home projects for two of our members (gardening and window washing). Thankfully, the rain held off all day, so we were able to complete all the projects we had planned.
We are planning an overseas mission trip to Nosara, Costa Rica from Saturday February 24-Monday, March 5, 2018. While we are there, we will partner with Mercy Home Ministries to build 2 houses for the poorest of the poor in the community.
