Prayer Shawl Ministry

During the last decade, this ministry has distributed nearly 500 hand knitted shawls, baptismal blankets and lap robes to comfort families dealing with difficult situations or celebrating baptisms. 

Meal Train

This program was established to help those within and around our community, organizing delivery of meals to those in need.

A neighbor to our church is a halfway house for men fighting addiction. Items are collected for those who often enter the program with only the items on their backs. We welcome all to our Sunday worship and many have become involved in the life and ministry of our church.

Courtyard Garden

Our Courtyard Garden was established in 2020. Volunteers plant and tend the garden throughout the spring and summer, and the harvest is shared with our church community as well as the Cupboard of Kindness Food Pantry.

Employment Support Group

This group meets every other week offering people looking for work or looking to transition to a new career the opportunity to develop a resume and strengthen their interviewing skills. 

The townwide Norton food pantry was established by TCC over 15 years ago and is now supported by our church as well as other local organizations.

Community Classes/Programs

Early Head Start, AA, Girl Scouts, Norton Play group and Zumba have weekly access to our building for their meetings.

Personal Best Charity

This local charity has been supported by our youth in a walkathon and through our financial support. For the past several years, young and old have helped deliver turkeys and food baskets to those in need for Thanksgiving.
