We mean it when we say "reaching out in love"! Some of our methods have had to change due to pandemic safety, but we are all the more dedicated to serving God's people in Westfield and beyond.
Westfield Farmers' Market
ECOTA has been sponsoring the Westfield Farmers' Market since October of 2014. We grew from five to over 35 vendors in that time, and have included live music, food trucks, free lunch distribution for kids, and other community service features. The pandemic slowed us down a bit, but we opened with pandemic safety protocols in July 2020, and continued through the second week in October. We expect to reopen in June, 2021! If you are a vendor, please visit the website for more up to the minute information. We welcome volunteers from the parish and the wider community!
Relay for Life - Team Atonement
We are privileged to participate in Relay for Life in the Pioneer Valley! In addition to walking (or virtually walking) we include in our prayers those who are suffering from cancer, the bereaved, and the doctors, nurses, and scientists who are engaged in the fight against this scourge. Check this page for how to get involved in Relay 2021.
Little Free Library
Located near our playground, our Little Free Library offers books for children and adults. The books are free - please take what you would like to read.
If you have books to donate, please drop them off at the church office (Tuesdays through Fridays between 9 am and 12:30 pm.
Change the Babies
Mampong Babies Home, Ghana
For five years, 2015 through 2020, we have supported this home for infants whose mothers died in childbirth. The need is even great during the pandemic. If you can contribute, please contact Mother Nancy.
Westfield Food Pantry
We have a long history of supporting the Westfield Food Pantry. Since the pandemic began, we have been collecting food for our own satellite pantry--a little red shed just outside our side door. Food in our "Little Free Food Pantry" is available to the public at anytime! Just walk up or drive up and take what you need.
To contribute to the LFFP, drive by once a month on Saturday (the date will be posted on the Home page each month.) The Westfield Food Pantry schedules a grocery distribution on the third Saturday of each month in our driveway. Check their website for more information.
