Please join us on Sunday, October 7, as we celebrate World Communion Sunday with a visit from the Pivot Ministries Choir with a luncheon to follow!

World Communion Sunday takes place each year on the first Sunday in October as Christians of all denominations around the world celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion together.  This special Sunday embraces our diversity as children of God while uniting us within our local communities and around the globe through the shared experience of Holy Communion.  World Communion Sunday is a powerful experience that we are excited to share with friends from the Pivot Ministries Choir as we enjoy their meaningful music.  Following the service, we will be sharing a potluck luncheon with an “international flair.”

Mini Missions for Pivot Ministries

We will be collecting items to present to the Pivot Ministries Choir at their visit on Sunday, October 7.  Pivot indicated that they have a need at this time for bath towels, washcloths, toilet tissue, and basic toiletry items (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, etc.).  Our goal is to collect at least 24 each of bath towels and washcloths to meet their current needs.  Items can be put in the Mini Missions wagon in the narthex at any time prior to their visit on October 7.

A luncheon sign up sheet is posted in the Narthex.

About Pivot Ministries

Founded in 1970, Pivot Ministries is a faith-based residential treatment program for men located in Bridgeport and Norwalk.  Pivot is a non-profit agency with four decades of successful experience assisting men challenged by alcohol and substance abuse.   Its mission is to treat drug and alcohol addiction as a spiritual problem and return the men to their families usefully whole.  Serving approximately 250 men per year, the Ministry reaches men throughout the Northeast and beyond.

Spiritual music is used as an integral component of a student’s recovery at Pivot Ministries. These men have been blessed with many gifted voices throughout many years, and all staff and students participate in the choir.

The Pivot Choir regularly sings at several area churches, and over the years the men have performed with the Norwalk Symphony, the New Haven Gospel Festival and several community gatherings. The Pivot Choir has also produced five CD’s available for purchase.
