On the second Friday of the month, two out of three months, our church provides dinner at the Salvation Army soup kitchen in Framingham. PCIS members cook a meal from the supplied recipe and/or help us serve at the Salvation Army.
Join us in this great opportunity to do something tangible and provide for others who have less than you. It is very satisfying!
Upcoming dates, recipes and a sign-up sheet are posted in Fellowship Hall.

Worship at Wingate
Our ministry at Wingate is a very meaningful one for both the residents and the volunteers. Once a month PCiS provides the only Protestant worship service offered at Wingate Nursing Home in Sudbury. There are several Protestant residents representing quite a variety of denominations, and the smiles on their faces when they leave the service are worth every moment of volunteer time. We always welcome new volunteers. We gather at 1:00pm at Wingate on the third Sunday of each month, and the service starts at 1:30pm and lasts for 30 minutes. Volunteers give residents wheelchair rides to and from the service, read Scripture, offer the pastoral prayer, and/or serve communion once a quarter. New volunteers are paired with experienced volunteers until you “learn the ropes.”
If you have questions, you may contact the church office at 978-443-9151 or contact Dr. Susan DeHoff with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
