Since 1993, families in need of clothing come to the Clothing Closet on Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Closet receives clothing donations from a variety of sources. Donations are gratefully received anytime the church is open. Please, no furniture, electronics (old computers, etc.) or car seats. There is no cost to visitors needing items.
Since 1978 teams of women have conducted a Bible study for women in the Androscoggin County Jail. The objective is to acquaint the women with the Bible and to read for themselves what God is saying to them, so they will get to know Him personally. Bibles are supplied and the women are free to keep them upon release.
Some of L-A’s new immigrants quickly chose to worship at CSBC. We selflessly give all manner of assistance in settling and obtaining employment. From learning English —most essential —to job searches, to finding and providing household furnishings, to understanding American culture, to supplying food, as well as financial assistance. Some have been chauffeured to and from new jobs on a daily basis. We’ve helped arrange legal counsel and prepared them and taken them to immigration hearings in Boston. We’ve witnessed much progress in assimilation into our foreign culture, and we congratulate and embrace our new brothers and sisters in Christ.
