FOOD MINISTRIES:
On Tuesdays from 9-1, a group from FLUMC travels to Paterson to help out at CUMAC, a food pantry. We also serve Meals-on-Wheels regularly and have one-time service opportunities as often as we can.

COMMUNITY GARDENS:
We have two thriving gardens: one by the entrance to the church and one at McBride Field across from Market Basket in town. These gardens both grow fresh vegetables for CUMAC. We are always looking for new volunteers, new ideas, and people who are as passionate about growing healthy food as we are! Be in touch.  If you would like to volunteer to work in the community garden at McBride Field, please sign up at:

FRIDAY, MARCH 1 ~

The Hip Replacements - a musical act that every audience falls in love with. Lori Gretz’ silky smooth lead vocals are truly, in a word, breathtaking. Barry Gretz’ guitar playing runs the gamut from finger-style delicacy to hard-driving rock anthems, and his vocals harmonize beautifully with Lori’s.

FRIDAY, APRIL 5 ~

The Kootz – An Old Stone favorite, The Kootz will wow with great instrumentals, great vocals and lots of fun!
