Union Congregational Church of Groton is hosting a community-wide Service Sunday event on Sunday, August 28, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
All are welcome to join us for our Sunday morning worship service at 10:00 a.m. where we will be hosting a ‘Blessing of the Backpacks.’ Filled with school supplies, these backpacks will be distributed from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. to pre-registered families. Join us for a free lunch (burgers, hot dogs, veggie options), enjoy simple fun games for kids, and meet some new folks. Donations are being collected for two of our local non-profit partners, Loaves & Fishes and Catie’s Closet.
Loaves and Fishes is a local food pantry serving Ayer, Devens, Dunstable, Groton, Harvard, Littleton or Shirley. Their mission is to provide nutritious food, in an atmosphere of kindness and respect, to individuals in need. For more information, including a list of most-needed items, click here.
