Happy Hookers Group

First Reformed UCC is fortunate to have many talented people who knit or crochet Prayer Shawls for the ill and infirmed, infant clothing for the Mary's Closet program, and hats and scarves for kids as part of the Red Cross Kozy Kids program.  If you knit or crochet and want to take part in this ministry, the group will be happy to have you join them.  Those who receive your completed project are so very appreciative. 


Diaper Bank Program

First Reformed participates in this Salvation Army program.  This service is provided at the Church on the fourth Sunday of the month at 4:00pm in Land Hall.

 

Boy Scouts

     We are fortunate to have two scouts involved in achieveing the Eagle Scout designation.

     Our new digital sign at the front of the church is the completed Eagle Scout project of Mason Wolber.  Mason spearheaded the entire project - no small task!  See the Wednesday, November 29, 2017 front page of The Hamburg Item for the details of this project.  Thanks to Sue Leiby for getting this news in print and our church on the front page of our local paper!

     Lucas Gehring completed his project of making a lovely garden spot out of the much neglected, plot next to the church handicap ramp entrance.  He held a sandwich sale to raise funds for the garden, pulled a working crew together, hauled loads and loads and loads of red stone to the garden, and brought his project to completion. 

     We appreciate the efforts of both of these fine, hard-working Boy Scouts.  Thank you so much!
