Taste of Heaven Ministry

As part of its outreach effort, the Mission Board has voted to sponsor a project called "The Taste of Heaven Ministry."  This ministry is currently active in filling some of the many needs at two local homeless shelters. 128 backpacks have been filled with school supplies for the children in our community.  Leave items in the baskets in the church lobbies. 

John Clarke Nursing Center

Each day, residents at the John Clarke Nursing Center in Middletown RI are provided with the vital medical care they need.  But as Christians, we know that people need more than mere medical care, food and shelter.  To learn how you can help enhance the lives of residents at the John Clarke Nursing Center, call 401-846-0743. 


Front desk volunteers are needed for support and assistance at the busy office at Canonicus.  Volunteers are needed for one day a week from 10 am to 2 pm, answering phones, greeting visitors, and handling light clerical tasks. Interested?  Call 401-294-6318, extension 102.
