Cheshire UMC has several opportunities throughout the year to serve locally and abroad.  Here's how you can get involved...

Acts 4 Ministry, Inc.

Acts 4 Ministry in Waterbury is seeking some new volunteers. There are opportunities for (1) personal shoppers to help our clients find the sizes and articles of clothing they need; and (2) volunteers to help in the warehouse with taking in furniture and donations, recycling trash or metal, furniture repair, and several other duties. If you are interested, you can contact Renee Poet at reneepoet@comcast.net or (203)758-0293, or contact Acts 4 directly at (203) 574-2287.   If you have even a couple of hours a week or every other week to spare during the day, this can be very rewarding.
