We are a small church in terms of membership, building, and budget – but we give back to our community as much as possible with what we have. You are welcome to learn more about the organizations we support here, and to donate or get involved yourself.
The New London Community Meal Center, aka the Soup Kitchen, provides free, hot meals to anyone who needs one with no questions asked. They have been feeding the hungry for many years, and are always looking for donations and volunteers!

They send not only money and goods, but also volunteers to places across the globe.
