HABITAT FOR HUMANITY WORKDAY
We will celebrate our congregation’s commitment to Habitat for Humanity at the Sunday service on September 17. Join us the day before, September 16 for a workday with Habitat for Humanity of Eastern Connecticut. No special skills needed; no prior work with Habitat. If you are new, go to www.habitatect.org to view a very brief training video. If you would rather work at the ReStore in Waterford, great. Contact Pat Turner at macturn@sbcglobal.net or call 860-535-1541.
