As a former board member and worshipper at the church, I have seen first hand the commitment to our membership and the community at large. Helping people of the community through Greater Waterbury in Missions, Habitat for Humanity, Youth Sleepout for the Homeless, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for the needy, Monthly Meals for the soup kitchen, support for the Prospect Fuel Fund and Prospect Food Bank just to name a few. It is a group of compassionate, caring and giving people who love to welcome new guests and members. Our newest project is putting in an elevator to further assist our current disabled members to fully participate in the life of the church and to encourage others to come and worship with us on Sunday. Blessings to you all. Judy Niatopsky
I have been a member of this church since 1969. I was away from the church for a period of time after several moves but came back to the church after a loss in my life. I was welcomed back as if I had never been away. I am very active in this "Church on the Hill" and I am very proud to be a member of this community of faith. I am happy to provide my time, talents and treasure and appreciate all of the efforts this church makes in the wider community not just within the walls of our own church. Our outreach to the homeless and under privileged is evident in all we do, from homeless awareness to our casserole ministry and the many world wide missions we are involved with. This is a place for me... It could be a place for you!
I've been a member of this church my whole life. I will turn 61 in December 2012. As a baby, my mom brought me to what was then called Cradle Roll. Many moms and children gathered to get to know one another and it was a great experience for all involved. Over the years, I remained active and held many offices within the church. I now serve as the Financial Secretary after the former secretary gave up the position because of the computer age. She has since passed away and is sorely missed by our whole congregation. We are a very, very active church and are in the process of trying to raise funds in order to install a handicap lift mechanism to make our church available to everyone!
Prospect Congregational Church members are very active in local missions, feeding the soup kitchen monthly with casseroles and sandwiches, habitat for humanity volunteers in building their 3rd house. Reaching out with out mitten tree every Christmas. Helping the Greater Waterbury Interfaith with Christmas presents, clothes for the needy. Recently reaching out to ACTS-4 and donating warm coats, gloves etc.
Our youth group works very hard at raising the awareness of the needy with their annual winter weekend overnight in the cold raising money, canned goods, and winter coats. We have an active monthly dinner for the local community to join us as one of our "fun"d raisers. We preach the word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Come and join us. Our Sunday evening service is full of praise, singing and sharing communion. Our Sunday morning service is also full of praise, singing and fellowship.
I have been a member of this church since 1965 and have experienced quite a bit since I've joined. The church is a very active church and involved in a great deal of outreach programs. Our Missions Board is always active and seeking out other organizations to help. Although our membership may be low, the members who are involved put a great deal of their time and efforts into making it the best little church on the hill in Prospect, Connecticut. I have served in many capacities over the years and wouldn't think of attending any other church.
Working with the volunuteers of this church to feed the hungry of the greater Waterbury area is a spirit-filled experience. All ages from young children to our senior population, in fellowship with one another, work hard to feed as many as 300 people at the soup kitchen provided by GWIM. It is an awesome shared time that means as much to the people who are hungry as it does to the people who prepare the meal. I praise God for this church!
