Dwelling Place

Please note: Our support of the Dwelling Place continues in this time of social distancing, but our delivery has had to change – we can no longer cook and serve meals on site.  Each month since April, we provided 30+ individual grab and go meals purchased from China Sky.  The cost was $10/meal.  The Crawford community generously provided the funds for this meal.  We anticipate purchasing our May meal as well.  If you would like to contribute, you can mail or drop off a check at the church (34 Dix Street, Winchester, MA 01890).  Be sure to indicate in the memo line that you would like the funds used for the Dwelling Place.  Thanks in advance for your generous support!

Missions and Ministries

The Crawford community highly values reaching out into our local communities and beyond to support social justice by helping our neighbors in need. Our goal is to continue our efforts in areas we are familiar with and open ourselves to new possibilities. Recently, we provided loaded backpacks to local homeless people and those living on-the-edge, made deliveries of furniture for Mission of Deeds, provided Thanksgiving Baskets and Christmas Stockings for the Council of Social Concern, donated books for under-served youth and incarcerated men and women, visited members hospitalized or in Assisted Living, served dinner monthly at the Dwelling Place and collected fine clothing for job interviewees. We welcome all, both those at Crawford and those outside Crawford, to become involved in our missions. You don’t have to be a Crawford member to be a volunteer to help others.

Come join us and reap the benefits.
