The Dan Liparini Trio will be performing an evening of jazz music at WACC on November 2 at 7:30 p.m. The trio plays original instrumental music that has its roots in jazz, but also draws from folk and electronic music. Joining Liparini are Matt Dwonsyzk and Kirk Woodard, all graduates of the Hartt School of Music.
The Board of Christian Outreach holds Food Basket Sunday on the third Sunday of every month. We will once again be collecting food and toiletry items to help fill the shelves at Gifts of Love. Please bring your donations to church on Sunday, November 18. You may bring them to the sanctuary and place them in front of the communion table or leave them in the school bus outside of the church office at any time.

Bad Girls of the Bible: The next meeting will be on Wednesday, November 7 in the church library. We are discussing the books The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs and 50 Women Every Christian Should Know by Michelle DeRusha. Bring a lunch and join us at 11:30 a.m. Discussion of the books is from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Anyone is welcome whether or not you have read the book.
Dining for Women: This program meets once a month to raise funds and support programs that help disadvantaged women. The goal of this organization is to “educate girls, teach women a skill, help develop markets for their products, and fight the prevalent gender inequality in the world. We give a hand up, not a hand out. Dining for Women celebrates the power of the individual to see an injustice and act to change it; to see need and act to fill it. Dining for Women’s members are deeply involved in the programs we support and the problems we seek to address. Our education component is equally as important as our fundraising.” Please contact Susan Lane at (860)675-8664 or email@example.com for details.
