National Council of Churches Urges Prayers for Peace,
Pleads for Calm, Civility, and Healing

We ask those currently holding political office to work in a bipartisan manner to seek solutions to our nation’s problems. We commit ourselves as followers of Christ to work with our interreligious partners to deepen understanding, to seek peace, and to do our part to help our nation move past the current crisis.
50 FREE CHAIRS
Steve Abbott from West Parish Church in West Barnstable asked if the Council of Churches knows of any church or other organization who could use 50 stackable chairs? West Parish has bought new chairs and would like to donate the old ones if possible. They’re in good shape and certainly have many more years of use left in them. If interested, please contact Steve Abbott directly at: email@example.com
