Serving Our Neighbors

Food Distributions: First Parish Congregants donate food to local food pantries in the fall and winter via collections. The New Eden Community Gardeners donate a portion of their harvested vegetables to the Newburyport Salvation Army for distribution to families and individuals in need.

Outreach: We have served community meals at the Salvation Army monthly but the schedule recently changed.  We will be cooking and serving our next  meal  there February 19, 2015.  Leave a message on the church phone if you’d like to join us.

Heifer International:  Our Sunday School children have traditionally supported this charity and raised to purchase a goat for them during the 2013/2014 Christmas season.

Local Organizations the church has collected for during the Christmas season include Pettingil House in 2013 and The Boys and Girl’s Club of Salisbury in 2014.
