The Caring Connection provides short-term assistance and support to people in our church community during times of challenge or crisis.  We foster enriching bonds, both old and new through this out-reach. The support we provide for individuals or families includes meals, visits, calls, cards, transportation, flowers and funeral collations.  If you, or someone you know, would like assistance, please contact Laurie Graham at 617-489-6483 or We welcome volunteers to help us provide these services as well as information about folks who could use our assistance. If you know of someone in need, or would like to be added as a volunteer to the Caring Connection Support Crew, please download this form and return it to the church office.
