As Christian disciples, we invite all to share in the life, leadership, ministry, worship, sacraments, blessings and joys of our congregation.

What’s Happening at Woodridge

Membership and Fellowship are seeking:

Volunteers to provide Beverage on the Terrace, which starts June 23 and goes through early September.   

Please use the sign up sheets on the Narthex bulletin board.

We are still looking for one more person to help with the Livestream Team!  If you are interested in sitting in the balcony during worship once a month and would like to learn how to operate the camera and computer and generate our livestream of the worship service, please contact Bob Ryan (bobby.ryan@verizon.net or see him at church) or Jay Bombardier (firebombjr@gmail.com or see him at church).  Thank you very much!

Membership and Fellowship has posted two fun and exciting activities. Chat with your fellow members and use the posted sheets to sign up. 

Theatre By The Sea which offers shows:  TOOTSIE, The Sound of Music and 42nd Street as well as concerts:  Narragansett Bay Chorus and Billy Gilman. Additionally, Friday Morning Children’s Festival:  Mark Nizer, The AIRBORNE comedians, Keith Munslow’s I Love The Beach, Disney PIXAR Finding NEMO JR. and The Gottabees, SQUIRREL Stole My Underpants.

THE Terris THEATRE where you set sail on the Jewel of the Sea ocean liner and enjoy the musical comedy “Ask for the Moon”

Food Pantry volunteering – Second Saturday mornings – contact the church office if you would like to help out

An outdoor collection box for the Cranston Interfaith Food Pantry is located at the outside entrance at 30 Jackson Road, Cranston – bring your donations anytime

Thursday afternoon Grief Support Group open to the public

This gathering is for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. 

The group meets 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in the Woodridge Conference Room. Please use the Jackson Road entrance to the upper level of the Parish House building. 

For many people, a grief support group makes the process a little easier by building connections with others who are also grieving. A grief support group can have a positive impact on mental health. Studies show that these groups help to reduce depressive symptoms in people who have lost a loved one.

The group is facilitated by Rev. Burton Bagby-Grose, M.Div., Bereavement and Volunteer Coordinator for the VNA of Care New England.
