Woodfords UCC Mission Team
If you are wondering how to bring justice to the world, come join us. We are too. And while we are wondering we are also working on projects and on ourselves to bring about a world with more of the justice for which Jesus lived and died.
Woodfords Church is one of 13 local churches offering a temporary home to families who are homeless. Four weeks a year up to 5 families eat 2 meals a day and spend the evening in the church.
PORTLAND PRIDE PARADE
Woodfords members, clergy and staff come together every year to walk in the Portland Pride Parade.
FOOT WASHING AT PREBLE STREET
Woodfords clergy participate in the annual foot washing on Maundy Thursday, prior to Easter.
Project Feed, an emergency food pantry, is housed at Woodfords Church. Woodfords donates to Project Feed regularly and also hosts concerts in the Sanctuary which benefit the pantry.
WAYSIDE COMMUNITY LUNCH
Wayside serves lunch every Monday at noon at Woodfords. The volunteers who work the lunch are Woodfords members. Woodfords also works a monthly Wayside dinner on Stevens Ave.
CHURCH WORLD SERVICE
Woodfords Church acts as the Maine depot for emergency kits for Church World Service every year. We also put together kits/buckets ourselves.
We take on new service projects when we learn of a need. In the picture above, Woodfords members help repair a cottage at Pilgrim Lodge, a retreat center we attend annually.
