Historically we have been a community church, committed to strengthening our ties to the Raymond Community and providing opportunities for fellowship throughout the Town.
Here are a few of the ways we encourage community here in Raymond:
Pot Roast Suppers – We put on five public suppers during the summer and fall, with each one serving meals to 90-150 people. Folks come from far and wide and have been known to plan their vacation to coincide with a supper! Pot roast suppers have been a tradition in our church for a long time! Both sit down and take out meals are available and include a full dinner including brownies a la mode with chocolate sauce for dessert!
Raymond Arts Alliance (RAA) – We are thrilled to be partnering with the RAA by offering them space for their events and programs. The mission of the RAA is to encourage and foster community through the arts. Our church hosts their community concerts, weekly qigong classes, poetry readings, and other events.
Community Flea Market – “One person’s trash is another one’s treasure.” This annual summer event gives local vendors a chance to sell their wares as well as church members to clean out their closets. A silent auction as well as breakfast and lunch items round out the fun-filled day of bargain-hunting.
- Old Fashioned Christmas Fair – Church folk work all year on handcrafts such as a variety of knitted items, fired pottery, and Christmas crafts to sell for the church at the fair. In addition, someone frequently donates a hand knitted afghan or bedspread for a raffle. Maple syrup, baked goods, and a hot lunch are available.
