Homelessness Awareness Vigil

Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, 12:00 pm

Community

United Congregational Church, 9 Castle Hill Road, Pawcatuck, CT

Rev. Ruth Shilling Hainsworth, Pastor of the United Congregational Church of Westerly, United Church of Christ, is pleased to invite members of the community to participate in this unique event, a Homeless Awareness Vigil. Taking place from noon to midnight on Saturday, January 19, 2019, the Vigil is designed to remind us all that homelessness is everyone’s problem. In order to fix it, we need to understand the problem of homelessness from the inside out. Only then will we have any hope of living into reality Jesus’ command to care always for “the least of these.”
The Vigil will take place in several places on the church property located at the corner of Pequot Trail and Castle Hill Road in Pawcatuck. Outdoor activities will take place in our upper parking lot, meaning all vehicles will need to park in our lower lot behind the building, or on the street. Indoor activities will take place in the sanctuary, Fellowship Hall and the kitchen.
The Vigil will begin at noon with a brown bag lunch (bring your own) along with opening remarks and an opening prayer by Rev. Hainsworth. During the course of the Vigil, participants will hear a variety of guest speakers on the reality of homelessness here in our own community and the difficulties of escaping it. We will also engage in a variety of service projects on the church property to experience what it means to work to care for each other and God’s Creation. We will create signs and posters showing our solidarity with the homeless and poor. We will oversee donations received of small and medium sized tarps and cash, all of which will benefit the street outreach work of the WARM Center. We will enjoy an evening meal together, soup kitchen style. We will also participate in prayer times through word and action, including a flashlight walk of our labyrinth. Events continue on into the evening, ending at midnight with candlelight prayers.
The Vigil has been designed so that anyone can participate as their schedules permit: Come for all or part of the event. This event is suitable for all ages. Kindly note that youth who are not members of our church need to attend the event in the company of a responsible adult. Youth groups from other churches will receive a warm welcome!
For more information, please contact the church office at (860) 599-1226 or check the information available on our Facebook page. Join us to find out the truth that what we do does make a real difference in the lives of real people.

Flock Theatre Presents “Animal Farm” at the Mitchell College Red Barn;

Stage/Theater

Mitchell College Red Barn , 629-A Montauk Ave. , New London, CT , 06320

Flock Theatre is mounting their long-awaited reader’s theatre production of the George Orwell classic “Animal Farm” at the Mitchell College Red Barn (629-A Montauk Ave. New London, CT 06320). Showings will be held for two weekends, January 18-20 and January 25-27, 2019. All performances begin at 7pm. Purchase your tickets today at flocktheatre.org!
Orwell’s famous allegorical novel transposed into script reflects the events that created the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union, set against the backdrop of the Manor Farm, an aesthetic perfectly imagined within Mitchell’s Red Barn venue. In “Animal Farm,” two young pigs named Napoleon and Snowball mount a rebellion against the farmers when their leader, Old Major, passes away. The play follows Napoleon as he slowly and nefariously restructures the farm, wages war, and controls his subordinates through propaganda and manipulation.
Flock’s production of “Animal Farm” features an array of expertly designed and crafted animal masks created by Heather Asch, a 4-time Emmy award-winning puppeteer, whose credits include The Jim Henson Company, Sesame Workshop, and Nickelodeon.
