Bible Study with Shawna Andrews are on  Wednesdays  4:30 pm at the New Braintree Church. This fall they are working through:  Children of the Day – Bible Study Book: 1 & 2 Thessalonians  by Beth Moore

‘Manna from Heaven’ Bible Study facilitated by Pastor Deb Shepard is on the 2nd Sunday of the month 8:30 am – 9:30 am at the church where worship is being held.  This is a conversational time to ask questions, look for answers and explore other questions that emerge.  The group decides what the ‘Question/Topic’ will be for the next class and does research on their own.   The next class will be October 14th 8:15 am – 9:15 am at The First Universalist Church of Hardwick, ‘What were the modes of transportation available in the days of Jesus?’

The Mustard Seed Ministry:  every third Monday of a month a group of folks gather at the New Braintree Town Hall Kitchen to prepare a meal for the Mustard Seed Ministry in Worcester and Jeremiah’s Inn.  Folks take the meal to Worcester and help serve the meal at The Mustard Seed and drop off prepared food for Jeremiah’s Inn.  If you would like to learn more about this ministry, want to assist in preparing or would like to serve the meal, please leave a message at the church office
