Soup Kitchen

Ministry Teams and some other groups from our church take turns providing food and serving at the Christian Community Soup Kitchen at Park Place Congregational Church in Pawtucket.   Our church is on a rotating schedule with a number of other churches so we are responsible once every 11 weeks.   If you are interested in volunteering to help, please contact our Soup Kitchen Coordinator, Diane Todd at diane.todd15@gmail.com

HPV Vaccination Information

The RI Dept of Health has mandated that all children in 7th grade receive the HPV vaccine and this has caused concern for some parents. In response, Peggy Matteson, PhD, RN-BC and Health Ministry Consultant to RICUCC, has made available a short information sheet that provides basic information, with references to reliable sources of additional information.     HPV Vaccine Information sheet
