Making A Difference

Our purpose statement says that as disciples of Jesus Christ "we are committed to making a difference in the community and in the world through service..."

Here are just a few of the ways we are enacting that purpose statement.

Champ Homes of Hyannis

Each month we provide one or two evening meals for the residents of Champ Homes in Hyannis. The meal is prepared in our kitchen, here at the church, and then delivered and served to the residents at 5:00 pm. Lean more about Champ Homes.

Congregate Housing Meals

On any given Sunday you'll find a crew of our faithful members cooking and serving dinner to the residents of Chatham's congregate housing facility for seniors. This wonderful facility is able to offer residents weekend meals because of the volunteer efforts of many churches, community groups and individuals. We are proud to be one of the churches in Chatham that supports the staff by giving them time off and the residents by offering both food for the body and for the spirit as we spend time in outreach with our good friends while serving their meal. 

Annual COA Valentines’ Day Luncheon

Each year on Valentines’ Day we host 60 or more seniors from our community for a luncheon prepared and served by members of our congregation. This event is a real favorite with the seniors here in Chatham. COA helps us advertise this wonderful gathering and also provides transportation.The sing along is a highlight of the event. For more information, you may contact COA directly or email our church office at:
