Backpack Drive

We are partnering with the Hudson School District to provide students with backpacks and school supplies.  If you would like to participate in this back-to-school supply drive, there are two ways to donate:

  1. On-line through our website - Click HERE.  Be sure to designate "Backpacks".  While $25 funds a fully stocked backpack, feel free to make a donation in any amount.  Every little bit helps!
  2. On Sundays, starting August 12, we will have backpacks and kits available in the Connection Hallway.  You can pick out the backpack and kit you would like to donate and pack it on-site.  Click HERE for a look at the kits and backpacks.

Deadline for donations is August 26.

Moms Connect

Because we need each other and because being a mom isn't easy and children don't come with instructions, Moms Connect brings moms together, while equipping and mentoring them through motherhood from a Biblical perspective. 


Each semester consists of six-weeks of teaching, food with discussion, and sharing with one another in a small group setting.  All while your child is lovingly being taken care of.  Moms Connect will be meeting on Mondays, 9:30-11:00 AM, starting in October, 2018.  The first semester dates are:

  • October 1, 15 & 29
  • November 5 & 19
  • December 3

To register, click HERE; limited space, first come first serve; cost is $25.  For more information, contact Ashley Frigo at ashleymfrigo@gmail.com or (978) 549-3559.

THRIVE Women's Bible Study

We invite all women of the church and surrounding community to join Thrive on Tuesday mornings as we look at what it means to "Make Your Mark".  This year, we will focus on knowing and following Jesus as we study the Gospel of Mark.


Thrive begins meeting on Tuesdays, September 25, 2018 through April 2, 2019,   9:30 - 11:30 AM.  Childcare is available (with commitment to volunteer in childcare once during the year or an additional flat rate fee of $20), as well as a small group option for those new to Bible study. 


Registration will open September 1, 2018; cost is $50.  For scholarship requests or to ask a question, email Jenny White at gracethrivestudy@gmail.com or call at (508) 429-0020.
