A message from Amy Pigeon :

This January Lynn Armstrong and I are going to Guatemala and will do a distribution of Days for Girls hygiene kit. For the next 3 months we will be making 50 kits. We will be having a group sewing twice, one for the bags and one for the shields to help you get started if you are interested in sewing.

I will also make up kits with directions.
Please let me if you would like to help.
I am also taking donations to help defray the costs of the kits.
Please contact me at 978 223 3597 or Amypigeon1227@gmail.com

Work for Peace and Justice in the World

Welcome Refugees.  We organize housing, spiritual support, food, schooling, English language classes, health care, post traumatic stress and medical support for a growing community of families here in Ipswich. We welcome your volunteering, friendship, and other gifts.

Address homelessness.  We work with the local organization “Family Promise”, which supports local homeless families as they transition out of homelessness. Four times a year, a network of families will come to Ipswich to stay in the Presbyterian Church while we assist their search for jobs and housing. We provide the meals and moral support. Please speak with Rebecca or Kalapi Johnson if you would like to get involved.

Addiction Recovery in Ipswich: Are you an addict? Do you have a family member or neighbor who has asked you for help? Do you have good energy to help someone in early recovery? We work in partnership with the Angel Project at the Ipswich and Gloucester police, and if you need help getting to treatment, please ask us. We are glad to be a part of your new life. And if you would like to volunteer companionship, support, and kindness, we welcome your presence as an ally.

Veggie Table: A number of church members and friends join together every Sunday to cook and share supper, in the spirit of helping to support the planet as it needs a community of nonviolent practitioners, sustainably eating plants and helping others to celebrate the beautiful diversity of the earth’s creatures.
Prisoner Support  : A team of church members regularly write letters to prisoners, pray for their release, and look at the prison system as an institution Christ called us to disrupt. Further, are helping a prisoner at the Concord Prison to attain his college degree, and we welcome additional volunteers.
